Cliff Pennington went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, walk-off RBI single to end Sunday's win over the Mariners.

Pennington sat patiently on the bench as the Mariners clawed their way back from a 9-3 ninth-inning deficit before getting a chance to play hero. Pinch-hitting for Andrelton Simmons with two outs in the frame, the veteran infielder notched an RBI single against Mariners closer Edwin Diaz to cap off the Angels' improbable victory.

Angels activated INF Cliff Pennington from the 60-day disabled list.

Pennington wound up missing two months with a severe left hamstring strain. He hit the ball well on his minor league rehab assignment, but there's little hope of the 32-year-old infielder providing significant fantasy value. Pennington stands as a .246/.314/.345 career major league hitter.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Cliff Pennington (hamstring) is still "a ways away."

Angels placed 2B Cliff Pennington on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Pennington had to be lifted from Tuesday's game against the Tigers when he tweaked his hamstring on an infield single in the seventh inning.

Cliff Pennington is expected to be placed back on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Angels placed INF Cliff Pennington (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Pennington left Thursday's game with a strained left hamstring and needs a couple of weeks to get healthy. The veteran infielder remains a useful big-league player due to his glove, but he's hitting .217/.294/.370 in 53 plate appearances and hasn't hit above .260 since 2011.
