ST. PETERSBURG http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-gerrit-cole-jersey , Fla. (AP) — Jake Bauers spoiled the Oakland Athletics‘ chance to close some ground on the AL wild card-leading New York Yankees.Bauers hit a three-run homer off Jeurys Familia in the eighth inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays slow the playoff-chasing Athletics with a 7-5 win Saturday night.Oakland remains 1 1/2 games behind the Yankees for the top AL wild card after New York lost to Toronto earlier in the day. The A’s, who have dropped two of three since winning six straight, fell 3 1/2 games behind Houston in the AL West.Bauers’ homer was just the second allowed by Familia (4-2) since he was acquired by Oakland on July 21 from the Mets.It came a few minutes after Oakland manager Bob Melvin was ejected by home plate umpire Larry Vanover for arguing a third-strike call on Marcus Semien in the top of the eighth.Bauers, who busted a 4-for-65 slump with three hits and four RBIs, celebrated his 11th homer with a big flip of the bat.“It’s nothing to do with disrespect or showing people up or anything like that. It’s just purely letting a lot of pent up emotions out,” he said. “The homer felt great, the bat flip felt better.”Andrew Kittredge (2-2) retired Mark Canha with the bases loaded in the eighth to preserve a 4-4 tie and win a game in which both teams used relievers as openers. Tampa Bay and Oakland have been at the forefront of that trend this season.“Oakland’s playing for an awful lot right now,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “Every game, they put themselves in a situation where they’re playing for a wild card home field. They’ve been on a nice run. It makes all the sense in the world how aggressive they’re being.”Sergio Romo got his 20th save despite giving up a homer to Matt Chapman in the ninth. It was Chapman’s 23rd homer.Oakland’s big chance came in the eighth. Before Canha grounded out, Semien was called out on strikes with the bases loaded.“I mean, everyone sees the box,” Semien said. “I looked at the box on the computer and it was not in the strike zone. That’s the facts. That’s what I saw on our computer.”Melvin, who was ejected for the second time this season, saw it, too.“The closer we get to the end, the more emotional we’re going to be,” he said. “He’s trying to grind through that at-bat and drive in the go-ahead run Hector Rondon Jersey , and you feel like he gets a (strike) call that’s not a strike. … It happens.”Brandon Lowe hit a two-run homer in the second to put Tampa Bay ahead, and Jed Lowrie made it 2-1 in the third with a single off Yonny Chirinos. Chirinos then retired 10 in a row before Matt Olson tied it in the sixth with his 27th home run.Kevin Kiermaier hit an RBI triple and scored on Bauers’ sacrifice fly for a 4-2 lead in the sixth, but Canha’s pinch-hit double helped the A’s tie it at 4 in the seventh.Tommy Pham’s 17-game hitting streak came to an end for the Rays, who have won 10 of 13.FOUR TEAMS WINNING 100 GAMES?With two weeks left in the season, the A’s, Astros and Yankees could join the Red Sox as 100-win teams. Never before have three teams from the same league — or four teams from both leagues — won 100 games in the same season.“There seems to be, at least in our league, more powerhouses this year than in the past, maybe a little less parity,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “The only thing I would really take from that is that if you went into the season and looked at those (other) three teams that might win 100 games, you almost expected them to.”TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: OF Chad Pinder was in the leadoff spot after stumbling over the bullpen mound while chasing a foul ball Friday night.Rays: Cash said Romo is fine after the reliever “dinged his knee up a little bit” while working a perfect ninth inning Friday night. … INF Daniel Robertson, rehabbing after season-ending left thumb surgery, resumed taking grounders at second base and shortstop.UP NEXTRHP Mike Fiers (5-0, 2.72 in seven starts since being acquired from Detroit) will pitch Sunday’s series finale for the A’s. RHP Diego Castillo, who started Friday night’s game for the Rays and pitched two innings, will start again Sunday. HOUSTON (AP) — Mariners manager Scott Servais loves how his team is hitting lately. He only wishes this offensive outburst had come earlier in the season.Robinson Cano drove in three runs, three players homered and seven pitchers combined for a five-hitter in Seattle’s 9-0 rout of the Houston Astros on Wednesday night.“The frustrating thing going through the struggles we did in August and early September was you know it’s in there Anthony Gose Jersey ,” Servais said. “It wasn’t consistently there and showing up, and the lineup just wasn’t flowing. Just up and down the lineup, the quality of at-bats have been there this road trip.”The Mariners took two of three in this series from Houston, which saw its AL West lead over the Oakland Athletics shrink to four games when the A’s beat the Angels 10-0.Seattle has outscored its opponents 35-19 in the last seven games, winning five.Rookie Matt Festa made his first career start on a bullpen day for the Mariners and threw a perfect first inning before Casey Lawrence (1-0) took over and allowed one hit in three innings. Adam Warren, Shawn Armstrong, Zach Duke, Justin Grimm and Roenis Elias pitched an inning each to close it out.“Obviously, to throw nine zeroes up there, it’s hard to do certainly against this team in this ballpark,” Servais said. “But our guys were really sharp tonight.”The Mariners jumped on Dallas Keuchel (11-11) immediately with Mitch Haniger hitting a leadoff single before a double by Jean Segura. A single by Cano came next to make it 1-0, and Keuchel walked Ryon Healy with one out. A wild pitch allowed Segura to score and Cano and Healy to move up a base.Kyle Seager then scorched a line drive that hit Keuchel on the side of the head and sailed into right field to score Cano and make it 3-0. Keuchel didn’t show any outward signs of injury. He was checked on by manager A.J. Hinch and the team trainer for a couple of minutes before throwing some warmup pitches and remaining in the game.He got on track after that, retiring the next 12 batters before walking Haniger with one out in the fifth inning. Cano hit an RBI double with two outs and he reached third on the throw. Nelson Cruz drove him in with a single.Keuchel yielded six hits and five runs in five innings for his first loss since Aug. 18.“They came out and ambushed Dallas,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “Within the first five pitches, we were in a mess and never really recovered from it. They continued to tack on, and we didn’t have an answer. … You just have to chalk it up to a bad night.”Brad Peacock took over to start the sixth inning and was greeted by Seager’s homer, which landed in the seats in right field.Dean Deetz came in for the seventh http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jimmy-wynn-jersey , and he also allowed a home run to the first batter he faced when Haniger sent one to the Crawford Boxes in left field.Guillermo Heredia hit a solo shot off Cionel Perez in the eighth.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: LHP James Paxton, who is recovering from the flu and pneumonia, will throw his second bullpen session on Friday and hopes to return to the rotation after that. He said he was “pretty gassed” after throwing 40 pitches in his first bullpen session on Tuesday, but believes he’ll feel better by Friday. “If I get to the point where I have something left in the tank after the bullpen, then I’ll get back in a game,” he said. … RHP Felix Hernandez (hamstring) will rejoin the team at Texas and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Friday.SCARY MOMENTSeager was shaken up after hitting Keuchel in the head in the first inning. His feeling was certainly understandable considering his history. In 2016 Seager hit a line drive that struck Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker and forced him to undergo emergency brain surgery. Shoemaker has recovered, but Wednesday’s incident with Keuchel brought back those memories.“It was scary,” he said. “Nobody likes that’s stuff. It makes you sick to your stomach. Thankfully he’s all right.”Keuchel said he was fine after the game and added that he feels lucky to have escaped injury.“I like to think that I’m tough, but even myself, I was very fortunate to not have anything seriously wrong afterward,” he said. “I don’t think I got any glove on it.”UP NEXTMariners: Seattle is off Thursday before Erasmo Ramirez (2-3, 5.65 ERA) starts in the opener of a three-game series at Texas. Ramirez allowed four hits and four runs in four innings in his last start but did not factor in the decision in a 6-5 win over the Angels.Astros: Houston is also off Thursday before beginning a series with the Angels with Gerrit Cole (14-5, 2.88) on the mound. Cole’s start was pushed back from Tuesday to give the right-hander, who has thrown 187 1/3 innings this season, some extra rest.
