Athletics Vs. Mariners Final Score: Win Streak Comes To An End With 7-1 Loss

The Oakland Athletics were hoping to stretch their winning streak to six games on Saturday night against the Seattle Mariners. Unfortunately, Seattle evened up the three-game series with a decisive 7-1 win in what was the worst start of the season for starter Jarrod Parker.

The Mariners scored in the top of the first inning, as John Jaso hit a two-out single to left field that ended up scoring Michael Saunders from first thanks to a missed catch error by Coco Crisp.

The A's evened things up in the bottom of the first, however, with the 20th Josh Reddick homer of the year. Unfortunately, that would be the last gasp for Oakland.

The Mariners picked up two runs in the second inning on a Brendan Ryan double, another run in the fourth on a Casper Wells homer and three more in the fifth on a bases-loaded, two-out double by Kyle Seager.

Parker went just 6.2 innings, giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks, although he did strike out six Mariners batters. The A's will try to pick up the win in the rubber game on Sunday, in what will be the last game before the All-Star break.
