    SEATTLE (AP) — Pinch-hitter Chris Herrmann’s two-run homer in the 11th inning gave the Seattle Mariners a 10-8 win over Oakland on Tuesday night http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/aut...n-guyer-jersey , clinching the AL West for Houston and leaving the Athletics with a wild-card matchup against the New York Yankees.Seattle overcame an 8-5 eighth-inning deficit and dropped the A’s 2½ games behind the Yankees for home-field advantage in the Oct. 3 winner-take-all matchup. Oakland had been 68-0 when leading after seven innings.Denard Span hit a two-run double off Fernando Rodney in the eighth.Blake Treinen was one strike from closing out his 38th save in the ninth, but Nelson Cruz punched a two-out single, Ryon Healy reached when third baseman Matt Chapman bobbled his grounder for an error and Kyle Seager hit an RBI single. Treinen had allowed just one hit in his previous 13 appearances.Ben Gamel walked with one out in the 11th against Emilio Pagan (3-1), and Herrmann batted for Andrew Romine and sent an 0-1 fastball out to deep right-center field.Alex Colome (7-5) pitched the 11th for the victory.A day after clinching no worse than a wild-card berth, Oakland took a 6-3 lead in the first two innings off Mike Leake. Nick Martini had a two-run triple and Matt Joyce a two-run single off Leake, and Marcus Semien added his 14th home run leading off the fifth inning. But the A’s went scoreless after Matt Olson’s RBI double in the sixth inning.HELLO AGAINEdwin Diaz, the major league leader in saves, pitched the 10th for Seattle. Diaz had not pitched since Sept. 17 Erik Gonzalez Jersey , when he collected his 56th save.PLAYOFF PLANSOakland manager Bob Melvin said the priority in the coming days will be making sure the A’s regulars get a chance at some rest so they are fresh when the postseason begins. Melvin indicated getting his guys rest would take priority over trying to chase down the Yankees in an attempt to have the wild=card game at home and not in New York. The A’s gave Khris Davis and Stephen Piscotty the night off on Tuesday.“There is definitely a balance to this but I think the depth of our team allows us to be confident with who we give a day off to, whether it’s in the lineup or in the bullpen,” Melvin said. “But it is important at this point if time in the season that once we get to the postseason that guys are fresh. It’s just as much of a mental grind as it is a physical grind too. One of the strengths of our team is we use all our guys.”The one guy that may not get any rest is Matt Olson, who has a chance at playing in 162 games. Melvin said he probably won’t start Olson at least one game against the Angels this weekend but will do what he can to make sure Olson reaches his goal of playing in every regular season game.As for pitching, Melvin said the staff hasn’t figured out who would pitch this weekend against the Angels, let alone in a wild card game.“We’re leaving everything open,” Melvin said.UP NEXTAthletics: RHP Edwin Jackson (6-3) makes his 17th start since joining the A’s on June 25. Jackson has a 3.18 ERA in his 16 starts, the fourth lowest in the American League during that stretch.Mariners: RHP Felix Hernandez (8-13) makes what is likely his last start of the season. Hernandez will finish the year with a career-worst ERA (currently 5.46) and the 13 losses are one shy of his career-high. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — On a day when Anibal Sanchez didn’t have his best command http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/aut...-tomlin-jersey , he found a way to help the Atlanta Braves on their march toward the postseason.Sanchez kept the Braves close with six strong innings, pinch-hitter Tyler Flowers drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth, and the Braves moved closer to clinching the NL East with a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.The Giants lost their 11th straight, the worst skid since the team moved to San Francisco and the longest for the franchise since 1951.The Braves reduced their magic number for winning the division to 11 with their fifth straight win, matching their best streak of the season, and clinched their first winning record since their last division crown in 2013. Going into Wednesday, Atlanta led second-place Philadelphia by 6½ games.“We’ve worked hard to get to this point,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “We’ve grinded through things to get to that position. We can look to bigger things now.”Sanchez remains winless in his last seven starts. He gave up one run on six hits and five walks. He induced double-play grounders to escape bases-loaded Carlos Carrasco Jersey , one-out situations in the first and the fourth.“I didn’t have the same command I’ve had before,” Sanchez said. “The defense has helped me so much and they got me out of that inning.”The Giants scored just three runs in the series. They were swept by the Braves in a series of three games or more for the first time since 2011.“It’s never fun, obviously. Everybody comes out here and puts in the work, grinding daily, trying to do everything we can to win ballgames,” Giants first baseman Brandon Belt said. “These games do matter to us.”Flowers beat out an infield hit that scored Charlie Culberson from third base with two outs in the ninth to put the Giants ahead. A replay review confirmed first base umpire Jeremie Rehak’s ruling that Belt’s foot was off the bag when Flowers reached first.“I just don’t get that call was not overturned based on the brief look I had at it,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “It shows you how much the call on the field plays.”Culberson singled leading off the inning against Will Smith (2-3). He advanced to second on Ender Inciarte’s sacrifice bunt and took third on Dansby Swanson’s grounder.Dan Winkler (3-0) pitched a scoreless eighth, and Jonny Venters worked a scoreless ninth for his second save.Derek Holland matched Sanchez Roy Oswalt Jersey , giving up one run in six innings of five-hit ball. He struck out seven and walked one. Over his last six starts, Holland is 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 34 innings.Evan Longoria put the Giants ahead with an RBI single in the third. The Braves drew even in the sixth on Freddie Freeman’s run-scoring single.SPIKEDSanchez stayed in the game after Gregor Blanco stepped on his heel when Sanchez was covering first for the first out in the sixth.“It scared me as soon as it happened, the pain … but I wanted to finish the inning,” Sanchez said.DISRUPTERSAsked about his team’s potential role as a spoiler, a term he’s bristled at in the past, Bochy said, “I probably prefer ‘disrupters.'”The Giants, who are four years removed from winning their third World Series title in a five-year span http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/auth...los-lee-jersey , play nine of their 15 remaining games against contending teams.“It’s not a great position to be in, but it is a motivating thing for the players this time of year when they’re not in it,” Bochy said.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves: Culberson was in Wednesday’s starting lineup at third base in place of Johan Camargo, who left Tuesday’s game with left groin tightness.Giants: Belt was back in the lineup a day after being held out with a sore right knee, an injury that may require offseason surgery.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Kevin Gausman (9-10, 3.89 ERA) will pitch Friday at home against Washington. Gausman is 3-1 with a 4.34 ERA in five career starts against the Nationals.Giants: RHP Chris Stratton (9-9, 4.99) will pitch Friday’s series opener at AT&T Park against the Colorado Rockies. The team’s winningest pitcher is 1-2 with a 2.84 ERA in four starts since his most recent callup from Triple-A Sacramento on Aug. 21.
