Ackley returns, hopes to help Mariners down stretch

After sitting out six of the last seven games with a sore left ankle, Mariners left fielder Dustin Ackley was back in action for Monday's series opener against the Angels and hopes he can continue playing the rest of the stretch run. Ackley missed four games, then went 0-for-3 in Friday's 4-2 win over the A's before being held out of the final two games of that set.

Postseason prospects: Are the Seattle Mariners out of gas?

This weekend's three-game series against the Oakland Athletics was crucial for the Seattle Mariners, but instead of asserting themselves as this year's postseason Cinderellas, the M's fell flat against a struggling divisional opponent. The M's dropped two of three games to the slumping A's at Safeco Field and are now, at the time of this post, one game removed from an American League wild-card berth with just 14 more games to play.

Lowrie draws bases-loaded walk in 10th to lift A's

With his team mired in a tough stretch, Oakland manager Bob Melvin was worried about missed opportunities - especially when a pitch in the dirt with the bases loaded in the 10th inning didn't scoot far enough to get a runner home. "I think the umpire blocked one pitch for us that might have been a run," Melvin said.

Troublesome ankle puts Mariners' Ackley back on bench

On reflection, Seattle Mariners left fielder Dustin Ackley's troublesome left ankle, while better, still isn't quite game-ready. He returned to the bench Saturday after going hitless Friday in three at-bats.

A's turn to Lester in final meeting with Mariners

It has been a slippery slope for the Athletics, and though they still remain in the playoff picture, wins are more necessary than ever to remain in it. Sunday will be the last chance for the A's to wedge any distance between themselves and the Mariners, who are breathing down their necks in the American League Wild Card chase.

Game 147, Athletics at Mariners

I'm tempted to leave Jeff's piece below up to function as the game thread, because it encapsulates what this game feels like so well. As it turned out, the M's didn't exactly build off the momentum they had following that sweep of the Blue Jays.

Saunders thrilled to be in race after long layoff

All the Mariners are enjoying being in the thick of the playoff race as the season hits the final stretch, but perhaps none more so than outfielder Michael Saunders . After spending nearly two months on the disabled list -- first with a strained oblique muscle and then with a viral infection -- the 27-year-old Saunders rejoined the club Monday and has been in the starting lineup every game since, including Friday's series opener with the A's, even with Dustin Ackley returning from a four-game absence due to a sore ankle.

Mariners notebook: Ackley returns to lineup

Left fielder Dustin Ackley returned Friday to the Mariners' lineup after missing the four previous games because of a sore left ankle and sees no reason he won't be good to go for the remainder of the year. "It's progressively gotten better every day since they've given me days off," Ackley said prior to Friday's game against Oakland at Safeco Field.

Perspective on the trade deadline

Austin Jackson celebrates with Dustin Ackley and James Jones after a Mariners victory over the Rangers on September 5, 2014 - Tom Pennington So you are frustrated about David Price not living up to the hype, with three losses and a 4.10 ERA? You are not comforted by his 2.58 FIP and 1.16 WHIP, but cannot forget a loss when he allowed only one hit? And you are frustrated by the lack of a true center fielder in Detroit since the departure of Austin Jackson ? Austin Jackson is triple-splitting .252 / .288 / .297 in Seattle. I think they were hoping he would reach base at least 30% of the time and use his speed, or hit for some power.

Mariners hope left fielder Ackley can play Friday against Aa s
