Mariners Vs. Athletics Final Score: 4-2 Loss Results In Oakland Sweep At Safeco

The Seattle Mariners were hoping to take advantage of a freshly-swept Oakland Athletics this weekend, but ended up being swept at home by them instead. Sunday afternoon's 4-2 loss sealed the deal for the A's.

With two outs in the top of the fifth inning, Jonny Gomes hit a big home run off of starter Jason Vargas. The three-run shot put Oakland on top and proved to be the difference in the game.

The Mariners got one of those runs back in the bottom of the fourth with an RBI triple from Michael Saunders. In the bottom of the sixth, Kyle Seager led off with a home run to cut the Oakland lead to 3-2, but that would prove to be the last gasp for the M's.

Josh Donaldson led off the ninth inning with another home run that put the game firmly out of reach.
