Manaea pitched seven strong innings and Jed Lowrie hit an early two-run homer off Felix Hernandez, leading the Oakland Athletics to a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
That wasn’t a balk. I stepped off the rubber, Hernandez said. It’s frustrating. It should have been an out.

I was just trying to figure out what was going on, Lowrie said. I don’t know. Let’s just play, that’s all I’m thinking.
Pavel Bure Jersey The longtime ace worked into the seventh inning for the first time this year, giving up five hits in 6 1/3 innings. He retired 13 in a row after Lowrie’s homer, and struck out seven without issuing a walk.
In the eighth inning, Seattle leadoff Eli Manning Womens Jersey hitter Dee Gordon bunted down the third base line with a runner on first. Oakland third baseman Matt Chapman charged in and narrowly threw out Gordon, a call that was upheld after a replay review.
