Mariners Vs. Athletics Final Score: Seattle Drops Series With 2-1 Loss

The Seattle Mariners lost another one-run game to the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, losing the rubber game of a three-game series by a final score of 2-1.

Coco Crisp led off the game with a home run to right field, putting the Mariners in a hole early. John Jaso evened things up with a solo homer of his own in the bottom of the second inning. Both starters held the score right there until Yoenis Cespedes hit his ninth homer of the year to center field for the 2-1 A's lead, which would end up being enough to give Oakland the win. The two home runs were the only two A's hits of the game.

The Mariners threatened in the bottom of the ninth inning, putting runners on first and second with two outs, but Ichiro Suzuki struck out to end the game.

Seattle starter Kevin Millwood had to leave the game in the third inning with a groin injury. If you recall, Millwood was forced to leave an eventual no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers a couple of weeks ago with a minor groin strain. There should soon be more detailed information about whether this will put him on the disabled list.
