The Seattle Mariners fought hard on Saturday night , but came up just short against the Oakland Athletics. Fernando Rodney gave up a run in the top of the 10th inning and the offense could match it in the bottom of the frame.

SEATTLE_The American League wild-card race 2014 should be something to watch. The A's can only hope they'll do well enough in their final couple of weeks of the season to be a part of it.
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.
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.
After missing nearly a week dealing with soreness in his left ankle, left fielder Dustin Ackley returned to the Mariners lineup for Friday's series opener against the Oakland Athletics at Safeco Field. Ackley, who hasn't played since leaving Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rangers, said he feels back to normal after inflammation sidelined him for four games.
The Mariners have led off a ballgame with a home run 34 times. Can you name them? And if not, why not? It's morning again in Seattle.
The Athletics are first in the wild card standings and recently lost three of four games to the Chicago White Sox. They were going for a split of the set at U.S. Cellular Field, but dropped a 1-0 decision on Thursday.
It's September 12th, and, to the relief and perhaps surprise of Seattle Mariners fans, they will be playing a very meaningful series this weekend. For the last time this season, the Mariners will play the Oakland A's.
