OAKLAND -- The A's turned on the power switch in the eighth inning on Sunday to move closer to their first postseason appearance since 2006. Yoenis Cespedes connected on his 23rd home run to break a 2-2 tie and Josh Reddick added a tape-measure blast to send the A's to a 5-2 win and series sweep of the Mariners on Sunday. Oakland recorded its fifth win in six games and 15th in 20 outings at home. Cespedes sent a two-strike delivery from Mariners reliever Shawn Kelley (2-4) several rows into the bleachers down the line in left. Cespedes stood at home plate waiting to see whether the ball would stay fair before breaking into his home-run trot.

The A's have hit 20 homers in the last nine games and have a Major League-leading 110 since the All-Star break...

On the year Saunders is hitting .249 with...
It's been one rotten final month of the season for Seattle Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez. Well, it's been a rotten final month for all of the Mariners, Seattle being 9-18 since the end of August following Monday's 7-4 loss to the Angels. Hernandez, however, had more to play for in the final five weeks. He was the AL Pitcher of the Month for August (4-0, 1...
Mike Carp and Justin Smoak are the two organizational front runners for the Seattle Mariners first base job in 2013. The Mariners will be looking to fit an abundant number of players onto their 25-man roster next season; with all of this talent on hand the team may look to move multiple Major League ready pieces in the off-season.
