OAKLAND Jarrod Dyson Jersey , Calif. (AP) — With the September stretch run under way, the Oakland Athletics want to leave nothing to chance when it comes to their playoff hopes.Splitting a four-game series and staying well ahead of the Seattle Mariners mattered so much with both clubs in contention.Stephen Piscotty homered twice and matched his career high with five RBIs as the A’s widened their lead over the Mariners for the second AL wild-card spot, beating them 8-2 Sunday. Oakland moved 5 1/2 games ahead of Seattle.“This is probably one of the biggest wins that we’ve had all season,” pitcher Edwin Jackson said. “It was definitely a must-win game.”Jackson (5-3) allowed one run on three hits in six innings. He improved to 5-0 with a 1.30 ERA in five career starts against the Mariners.A’s reliever Fernando Rodney surrendered Ryon Healy’s two-out RBI single in the eighth then Blake Treinen recorded four outs for his 35th save.Seattle starter Felix Hernandez (8-13) is 0-7 over nine outings since beating the Royals on June 30.A day after the Mariners held on for an 8-7 win, they took a 1-0 lead into the fifth before Piscotty tied it with a solo shot. He added a sacrifice fly in a four-run sixth.“Disappointing way to finish the series,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “Big win last night, obviously big sway game today, where we’re at in the standings if you could pull this this one out, but we didn’t get enough going offensively to make that happen.”Piscotty hit his 21st homer, a three-run drive, in the eighth for his third career multihomer performance.“I feel like everything’s kind of rolling my direction right now, which is good,” Piscotty said. “I was glad I was able to kind of jump start that.”Marcus Semien’s go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth chased Hernandez.Hernandez retired the first seven hitters in order before Chad Pinder’s one-out single in the third. The right-hander then got two consecutive inning-ending double plays to face the minimum through four.“It just shows the kind of perseverance in our team,” Jackson said. “It shows the kind of fight that we have.”Hernandez allowed four runs and four hits in five-plus innings, struck out three and walked two. He has made a minor mechanical change and had been commanding his fastball better, though he threw two wild pitches in the costly sixth.The A’s bounced back a day after striking out 18 times. On Saturday, manager Bob Melvin used an Oakland-record 24 players for a nine-inning game and nine pitchers — a franchise high for nine innings.Seattle leadoff man Mitch Haniger opened the game with a double for a career-best 14-game hitting streak. Khris Davis, who hit his majors-leading 40th homer Saturday night for the A’s ttp://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-boxberger-jersey , went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts.ALS AWARENESSThe A’s on Monday will remember Piscotty’s late mother, Gretchen, who died in May, as well as Hall of Famer Catfish Hunter and others affected by ALS in an ALS Awareness Day. The team is donating $150,000 to ALS Therapy Development Institute.“I’ve said many times he’s got a big angel on his shoulders,” Melvin said of Piscotty.CLOSE CALLSThis lopsided result isn’t a common occurrence when these teams play each other. Of their 16 matchups this season, eight have been decided by one run and three more by two runs. They have one series remaining, at Safeco Field from Sept. 24-26 during Oakland’s final road trip.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: DH Nelson Cruz played through a sore left foot and hobbled on the basepaths a day after a foul ball got him. … LHP Marco Gonzales, on the disabled list retroactive to Aug. 24 with a strained neck muscle, was tentatively scheduled to pitch off a mound Monday in a light bullpen session. “I’m much more encouraged based on what the trainers have told me the last couple days,” Servais said.Athletics: RHP Andrew Triggs (nerve irritation in his pitching arm) threw a 30-pitch, two-inning simulated game Saturday and said he “felt great.” While Melvin said Triggs would be re-evaluated to determine his next step, the pitcher expects to have a rehab outing Wednesday at Class A Stockton. … LHP Brett Anderson (strained pitching forearm) threw on flat ground Sunday and could work off a mound as soon as Monday.UP NEXTLHP CC Sabathia (7-5, 3.36 ERA) pitches back home in the Bay Area looking for just his second victory in eight starts when the New York Yankees — who hold the top AL wild-card spot — visit for a three-game series that begins with an afternoon contest on Labor Day. RHP Trevor Cahill (5-3, 3.60), 4-0 with a 0.85 ERA in eight home starts, pitches for the A’s needing four strikeouts to reach 1,000 for his career.Seattle returns home to host Baltimore, with RHP Erasmo Ramirez (1-3 Daniel Descalso Jersey , 6.2Cool pitching Monday’s series opener. HOUSTON (AP) — What a birthday present for rookie manager Alex Cora. He’s taking the Boston Red Sox back to the World Series.David Price put his postseason woes behind him, pitching the Red Sox past the defending champion Houston Astros 4-1 Thursday night in Game 5 of the AL Championship Series.Next stop for the 108-win Red Sox is Fenway Park for the World Series opener Tuesday night against either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Milwaukee Brewers.But before leaving Minute Maid Park, the Red Sox surrounded the 43-year-old Cora in the clubhouse and heartily sang “happy birthday!” Wearing goggles and championship gear, the team saluted the first manager from Puerto Rico to lead a team to the World Series.Cora was hired a year ago as he prepared to go to the Series as Houston’s bench coach. He got the job a month after Hurricane Maria devastated his island homeland, and immediately went to work helping with relief efforts.“I know right know for everything that we’re going through as a nation, as a country, for me to stand up here with this trophy, I know there’s a lot of people proud of me in Puerto Rico,” he said. Rafael Devers hit a three-run homer as the Red Sox stunned Justin Verlander to win the best-of-seven set 4-1. ALCS MVP Jackie Bradley Jr. , outfielder Mookie Betts and the Red Sox will try to bring Boston its fourth crown in 15 years — this is their first trip since winning it all in 2013.Los Angeles has a 3-2 lead in the NLCS going into Game 6 on Friday night at Miller Park.“We got four more wins. That was very, very special, absolutely. But we want more,” Price said.Pitching on only three days’ rest after Boston ace Chris Sale was ruled out while recovering from a stomach illness, Price struck out nine in six shutout innings of three-hit ball . The left-hander, who has had a rough time in Boston since signing a $217 million contract before the 2016 season, entered 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 career postseason starts.Price was thrilled that he won’t be questioned anymore about not having a postseason win as a starter.“That’s awesome,” he said. “I don’t have to prepare myself for it in spring training on Feb. 20 or September when I’ve still got five regular-season starts. I don’t have to answer that question anymore. And man, it feels good.”Price was warming in the bullpen as Game 4 ended, perhaps jeopardizing his readiness for Thursday. Instead http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-ketel-marte-jerse , that session may have keyed his dominant performance.“It felt good. Honestly, it really started last night in the bullpen. Threw quite a few pitches to come in for the next hitter, found something out while doing that and kind of just carried that over to today,” Price said.Price tipped his cap to a few hundred Red Sox fans assembled behind the Boston dugout while they cheered as he walked off the field following postgame interviews.The only time thing that didn’t go smoothly for Price came when he brought 1-year-old son Xavier into the postgame news conference and the little one wouldn’t quit shrieking and wriggling away from him .Price pulled him back onto his lap, repeating the words: “This is big, dude. This is big.”After dropping the opener at home, Boston took four straight — including three in a row in Houston to improve to 5-0 on the road in these playoffs.The Red Sox are the first team to win four straight postseason games against a 100-win club since the 2004 Red Sox against both the Yankees and Cardinals, STATS said.“Since Day One, we knew we had something special. We just needed to stay healthy and go out and execute,” Bradley said. Left fielder Andrew Benintendi caught a long fly for the last out — not nearly as dramatic as his game-saving diving grab the previous night. Just the same, it capped off a win.“The last out yesterday was like around 12:10. So we won two on my birthday. I’ll take it. I’ll take it,” Cora said.There was a smattering of boos from the home crowd as the Red Sox charged onto the field, embracing as they jumped around near the middle of the diamond. They posed for a team picture on the mound a couple of minutes later as members of Houston’s pitching staff slowly walked by, glancing at the revelry on their way back from the bullpen.“They beat us. We ran out of wins,” Astros manager AJ Hinch said .Despite leading the majors in wins during the regular season, the Red Sox were underdogs against a Houston team that defeated the Dodgers in last year’s World Series and romped past Cleveland in the Division Series this month.But stars Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and the Astros hobbled to the finish in a humbling defeat. Still, no team has repeated as World Series champs since the New York Yankees won three straight from 1998-2000.Altuve, last year’s AL MVP David Peralta Jersey , didn’t want to make excuses but said this was “absolutely” the worst pain he’s ever played with.“I feel really, really bad for not being on the field for my team, but one thing you can know is that I gave everything I had, healthy, not healthy that was all I have,” he said still wearing his uniform long after the game had ended. Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez hit an early homer off Verlander , and Price made the lead stand up into the late innings. Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his third save of the series.Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski is taking his third organization to the World Series. He won two championships as general manager of the Florida Marlins, then oversaw two pennants as GM of the Detroit Tigers. Dombrowski was hired by Boston in 2015.It was the 14th pennant for the Red Sox, who are 8-4 in World Series appearances. They took the American League flag in 1904, but the World Series wasn’t played that year.Boston ended an 86-year championship drought in 2004.Verlander had pitched 24 scoreless innings over his previous three starts with his team facing postseason elimination, and he came in 4-1 with a 1.21 ERA in five potential elimination games during his career.Houston’s only run came on a homer by Marwin Gonzalez in the seventh off Matt Barnes .Devers connected in the sixth for a 4-0 lead.Devers, who turns 22 on Wednesday, has 12 RBIs in 10 postseason games. He joined Mickey Mantle, Andruw Jones and Miguel Cabrera as the only players in major league history to have nine or more RBIs in the postseason at age 21 or younger.UP NEXTSale, who spent Sunday night in a hospital because of a stomach illness, has recovered and is set to start Game 1 of the World Series. Cora said Sale threw off flat ground on Thursday and was feeling better after he was unable to start on Wednesday because of the issue.
