Mariners 7, Athletics 5: Seattle avoids tying dubious team record

Seattle survives a nervous ninth inning, with three runs allowed by Brandon League. The A’s put the tying run on with two out, but David Aardsma came on and retired Cliff Pennington on a flyout to left.
The Mariners entered this game having gone 11 straight contests without scoring at least four runs. One more game like that would have tied the club mark set back in 1988.
No worries about that tonight, as the M’s notched a season-high seven hits in the second inning — many of them on bloopers, seeing-eye grounders and a dropped ball in the outfield. That’s the way baseball goes sometimes.
On defense, the M’s came out ahead in the game of inches and feet as well.
With two on, two out in a 6-2 game in the fifth, Kurt Suzuki drilled one to the wall in left. But the ball landed in Matt Tuiasosopo’s glove. On another night, maybe it leaves the park and the M’s go on to lose. Not tonight.
One key to this win, given what happened later, was a solid two innings of relief from Garrett Olson after taking over in the sixth from a shaky Doug Fister.
