There’s only a week left in the regular season, which may seem like an eternity for the Oakland Athletics. The AL West title has already been lost, leaving Oakland hoping for a wild card that isn’t yet assured. Seattle is two games behind the A’s – so that’s the cushion for an Oakland team that simply wants to reach the finish line without losing everything. Detroit leads the Central by 1 1/2 games over Kansas City.

If the Seattle Mariners wish to bounce back from their latest defeat, they likely need to continue their road success against Houston’s Collin McHugh. The playoff-chasing Mariners will try to prevent the Astros right-hander from winning his fifth straight start in Sunday’s series finale. With a 10-1 defeat Saturday, Seattle (83-71) couldn’t take advantage of losses by Oakland and Kansas City earlier in the day. The Mariners remain one-half game behind the Royals for the AL’s second wild-card spot, and one back of the Athletics.

For months, the Oakland Athletics were among baseball’s best offensive teams. Jerome Williams beat the A’s for the third time this season with his third different team, and Oakland missed an opportunity to extend its lead in the AL wild-card race with a 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. ”We’ve been struggling for a while, and this is a guy we had really good numbers off of,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said.

Jon Lester rediscovered his curveball last year, and it has been a helpful addition to an already impressive repertoire. Coco Crisp had two hits and drove in a run, supporting another strong outing by Lester, and the Oakland Athletics defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 on Friday night to regain the top spot in the chase for AL wild cards. During the second half last year I kind of figured out how it works and have been able to drop it in there.” Derek Norris and Eric Sogard also drove in runs for Oakland, which moved a half-game ahead of the Kansas City Royals, who were beaten by the Detroit Tigers earlier Friday. Ryan Howard hit a home run for the Phillies, who have lost five of six.
