The A's and Mariners will meet again in another three-game series. Oakland will draw Felix Hernandez in the opener.

Now the A's will try to regroup as they head to Safeco Field to take on the Seattle Mariners for a three-game series which begins on Friday. They'll face a tough task right away as they face the Mariners' ace in the series opener.
