Felix Regains His Footing as Mariners Hold Off A’s

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kyle Seager and Corey Hart homered leading off the seventh inning and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Wednesday to win the three-game series between the AL playoff contenders.

The home runs erased a stellar start by Jon Lester (13-10) and helped Mariners ace Felix Hernandez (14-5) win for the first time in four outings.

Adam Dunn homered in the fourth for the only run Hernandez allowed in eight innings. Hernandez gave up three hits, struck out four and walked two to outduel Lester in a matchup of two of the AL’s best pitchers. The Mariners tagged Lester for seven hits in eight innings.

Fernando Rodney pitched a perfect ninth for his 41st save in 44 chances.
