Mariners 3, A's 1
OAKLAND, Calif. — Dustin Ackley and Abraham Almonte homered during the fifth for the Mariners.

Meanwhile, Seattle ace Felix Hernandez retired his first 11 batters on the way to his 16th win over Oakland, his most against any team. Former Rays closer Fernando Rodney got the final two outs for his first save with the Mariners.
