The 1-2 Athletics came out of a three game series against the Indians where they did not look that great. They head into a series against 3-0 division rival Seattle Mariners. And after a good start from Jesse Chavez (6 innings, 2 runs, 1 earned run), the Athletics had to come back. Their first run was scored on a scored on a Sam Fuld triple, who was thrown out at home. And following an RBI Triple by Yoenis Cespedes, the Athletics won the game in the 12th inning on a Coco Crisp home run.
The Mariners took their hot start into the beginning of the game, scoring two quick runs on a Robinson Cano groundout, and an Abraham Almonte RBI Single. The Mariners held the lead until the eighth, when Tom Wilhelmsen gave up Cespedes' triple. That was the beginning of the end for the Mariners, as Hector Noesi gave up a home run to Crisp in the 12th inning to secure the Athletics' win.
