Athletics Vs. Mariners Final Score: Oakland Takes Series With 2-1 Win In 13 Innings

The Oakland Athletics wrapped up the first half of their 2012 season by playing a three-game series against division rivals the Seattle Mariners. In Sunday's rubber game and series finale, the A's managed a walk-off, 2-1 win in 13 innings.

Yoenis Cespedes hit an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning to stake the A's to a 1-0 lead. In the top of the sixth, Michael Saunders hit a two-out RBI single of his own to score Dustin Ackley.

The game went to extra innings still knotted at 1-1. In the bottom of the 13th, Jemile Weeks singled to lead off the inning and was driven in by a Josh Reddick double for the winning run and the walk-off Oakland win.

Oakland starter Bartolo Colon was masterful, going 8.2 innings and giving up one run on seven hits and no walks, striking out five Seattle batters along the way.

The A's will now head into the All-Star break sitting comfortably at .500, with a 43-43 record and 8.5 games out of first place in the American League West
