Stars of the game for the Mariners include Ichiro Suzuki who went 4-5 with an RBI in his homecoming, Felix Hernandez (8 IP, 1 ER, 6 K), Dustin Ackley (2-5, 2 R, 2 RBI) and Tom Wilhelmsen who pitched two perfect innings of relief.
Star on the Oakland side were starter Brandon McCarthy (7 IP, 1 ER, 3 K) and shortstop Cliff Pennington (2-5, 1 R).
The win for the M's puts them atop the AL West (for maybe the only time all year).
The two teams will meet again tomorrow morning at 5:10 AM EDT for a rematch with Jason Vargas taking the hill for the Mariners and Bartolo Colon for the A's.
