Mariners defeat A’s behind Iwakuma

From page B1 | July 13, 2014 |

SEATTLE — Hisashi Iwakuma pitched a career-high 8 2/3 innings, and Kyle Seager and Robinson Cano homered to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 6-2 win over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.

Iwakuma fanned five of the first six batters he retired en route to eight strikeouts overall. The right-hander allowed five hits and faced the minimum in all but three innings. In his last three starts, Iwakuma is 3-0 with a 0.42 ERA (3 earned runs in 21 2/3 innings), 25 strikeouts and no walks.

Brandon Moss’ two-out, two-run home run off Iwakuma in the ninth snapped his 20-inning scoreless streak.

Seager’s fifth-inning home run — a two-run shot — was his 15th of the season, and 13th at Safeco Field. His 42 RBIs in 47 home games leads the American League.

Cano’s ninth-inning, three-run home run was his seventh of the season, and gave the Mariners a 6-0 lead.

Oakland starter Jesse Chavez allowed three runs on a career-high 10 hits. He walked two and struck out six in 5 2/3 innings.

Dustin Ackley gave the Mariners a 1-0 lead in the second with a single that scored Corey Hart from second. Hart came within feet of hitting a home run, but the ball caromed off the top of the wall in left-center field, and the Seattle designated hitter settled for a double.

A’s left fielder Yoenis Cespedes threw out Willie Bloomquist trying to score from second in the eighth. It was Cespedes’ major league-leading 11th outfield assist this year, and his 30th since 2012.

Notes: Oakland’s Stephen Vogt extended his career-high hitting streak to 12 games with a single in the sixth. … Oakland outfielder Josh Reddick (strained right knee) is scheduled to start playing rehab games in the next couple days. … Oakland left-hander Drew Pomeranz (broken right hand) allowed a run and one hit, and struck out seven in four innings during a rehab start for Triple-A Sacramento. … Seattle lefty James Paxton (shoulder soreness) threw a three-inning simulated game and is expected to start for Single-A Everett on Thursday. … Seattle’s Chris Young and Oakland’s Sonny Gray will face off Sunday in the series finale.
