The A's got on the board first when Josh Reddick scored on a fielding error in the top of the first inning. The Mariners tied things up in the bottom of the second when Trayvon Robinson managed an RBI groundout. Unfortunately, the M's were unable to get any more runs across against Brett Anderson.
Oakland put together a big four-run fourth inning against Hisashi Iwakuma, scoring on a Stephen Drew single, a home run from George Kottaras and an RBI double from Coco Crisp. Iwakuma lasted just 3.2 innings and had his worst start since entering the rotation. Yoenis Cespedes hit a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth to make it 6-1.
The Mariners will try to avoid the sweep on Sunday.
