Seattle attempted a late rally on Saturday, scoring two runs in the ninth, but couldn’t complete the comeback.

Mitch Haniger had his 13th long ball of the season as he and Domingo Santana both had two hits with a home run and two RBI.
Athletics on fire
Oakland is one the league’s longest winning streak of eight games following Saturday’s win over the Mariners. Oakland is now 27-25 on the season, 16-10 at home and 27-25 with the under. The Athletics have Brett Anderson on the mound today. He is 5-3 on the year with a 4.14 ERA.
The Athletics got Mike Fiers his fourth win of the season on Saturday. He pitched six innings and gave up three runs.

MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are 6-22 in their last 28 games following a loss and 5-16 in their last 21 road games.
The Athletics have won six of their last eight division games and five of Anderson’s last six home starts.
Seattle just can’t get itself on track and Leake is coming off his worst start of the year at Texas. Anderson hasn’t been great for Oakland, but he is capable of quality starts. Given the Athletics are hitting the ball well and their bullpen is getting timely outs, it’s hard to go against them right now. These teams are going in very different directions right now.
