Oakland Tops Seattle Again On Saturday, But At Least M's Scored

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Jack Cust, Mark Ellis and Chris Carter all hit home runs to support seven strong innings from Brett Anderson as Oakland downed Seattle, 5-3, in the continuation of a season-ending four-game series.

Ellis walked, drove in two runs and extended his hitting streak to 12 games, while Cust went 2-for-4 for the Athletics, who have taken the first three games of the set after a six-game slide.

Anderson (7-6) yielded two runs -- one earned -- on eight hits while walking one and striking out six to end the season with his 18th career victory, the 3rd most wins by a pitcher before the age of 23 in Oakland franchise history.

David Pauley (4-9) allowed four runs on four hits and a pair of walks with two strikeouts over seven frames to absorb the loss for the Mariners, who have dropped four in a row to reach the 100-loss plateau for the fifth time in franchise history.
