OAKLAND — Jon Lester did just about everything the Oakland Athletics had hoped he would do in big games against big pitchers during the season’s stretch run.

The A’s just didn’t do enough for him — again.

The troubling trend of support for Lester continued in Oakland’s 2-1 loss to Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, dropping the three-game series to another AL playoff contender.

Kyle Seager and Corey Hart homered leading off the seventh inning as the Mariners rallied past Lester, who was acquired from Boston for slugger Yoenis Cespedes at the non-waiver trade deadline. Lester has not won since Aug. 12.

In his last four starts, the A’s have given Lester three runs, two runs, no runs and one run of support.

The homers that erased an otherwise brilliant performance by Lester (13-10) and helped Hernandez (14-5) win for the first time in four outings.

Adam Dunn’s homer in the fourth accounted for the only run Hernandez allowed in eight innings. The right-hander gave up three hits, struck out four and walked two to outduel Lester in a matchup of two of the AL’s best pitchers.

Giants rocked by Rockies

Ryan Vogelsong was hurt by the home run ball at Coors Field — again.

Vogelsong gave up a career-high four home runs, including two by Corey Dickerson, and the San Francisco Giants lost, 9-2, to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday.

Vogelsong (8-10) gave up 10 hits in five-plus innings and was tagged for eight runs, matching a career high. In his last outing at Coors Field on April 21, Vogelsong gave up three homers and five runs in 1 1/3 innings.

While Vogelsong struggled, Christian Bergman (2-2) pitched six sharp innings, limiting the Giants to two runs on nine hits and helping the Rockies take the season series 10-9. It was the first time Colorado, missing injured stars Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonalez, had won the season series with its NL West rival since going 11-7 against the Giants in 2008.

Buster Posey drove in both of San Francisco’s runs with a sacrifice fly and an RBI single.
