Athletics Vs. Mariners Final Score: Oakland Wins 5th Straight Game In Walk-Off Fashion, 4-1

The Oakland Athletics hosted the Seattle Mariners on Friday in the opener of a three-game series at O.co Coliseum. The A's entered the game with a four-game winning streak and trailed for nearly the entire game before forcing extra innings and walking off with a 4-1 win.

The Mariners got on the board right away, as Casper Wells scored in the top of the first inning on a Kyle Seager two-out RBI single to make it 1-0 Seattle. Although Oakland starter Tom Milone was on top of his game for seven innings, Mariners starter Kevin Millwood matched him frame for frame, holding Oakland batters to just three hits and two walks over seven innings, while striking out seven.

Milone struck out nine Seattle batters over seven innings, allowing six hits and one walk. Three of those six hits came in the first inning and every hit by the Mariners was a single.

The A's finally got on the board in the bottom of the eighth, when Jemile Weeks hit a two-out RBI single that plated Brandon Hicks. Oakland threatened in the bottom of the ninth with two runners on, but were unable to get anyone home and the game went to extra innings.

In the bottom of the 11th inning, the A's broke through. This time Chris Carter got to be the hero, blasting a one-out, three run homer for the walk-off win to send everyone home happy.
