The Seattle Mariners defeated the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Sunday to move closer to securing a wild-card spot in the playoffs.
Previously, the Mariners beat the Athletics 4-3 on Friday and 5-4 on Saturday. With those wins, Seattle took three of four games in the series.
“I think it’s been preached this rebuild so much, but I mean we’re right there on the edge of this thing,” said Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager.
This was the first time the Mariners (54-46) are eight games over .500 since April 2019. They improved to 23-8 in one-run games.
One of the players noted that their solid team is key to their improvement.
“We’ve got a good group that really sticks together and it’s different guys every day,” said pitcher Marco Gonzales.
