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.

Trout has 2 HRs, Weaver wins 17th for Angels

Jered Weaver earned his AL-leading 17th win, Mike Trout homered twice, and the AL West leaders reduced their magic number for clinching the division title to four with a 5-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Any combination of Angels victories and Seattle Mariners losses totaling four will give Los Angeles its sixth division title under manager Mike Scioscia and first since 2009, when the team won its third in a row.

MLB Prospect Review: Alex Jackson, OF, Seattle Mariners

Despite drafting 6th overall, the Mariners were able to draft a player this year that was viewed widely as the top high school hitter and possibly the best overall hitter available. What could Alex Jackson be for fantasy owners, and when could we see him in Seattle? Drafting in the top six picks for the fourth time in the six year tenure of general manager Jack Zdurencik, the Mariners appeared that they may be on the outside looking in with a fairly clear cut top five players in this class and the sixth pick overall.

McClendon's confidence in Morales unshaken

While Kendrys Morales went 0-for-11 in the Astros series and grounded into two double plays in Wednesday's 5-2 loss, manager Lloyd McClendon believes the veteran designated hitter is a key part of his team's attack heading down the stretch. Morales went 6-for-15 with two home runs and five RBIs in the previous four-game series in Texas, and McClendon sees continued progress from the 31-year-old, who was acquired in a trade with the Twins on July 25 after signing two months into the season with Minnesota.
