Romero's first home run of the season gave Seattle a 9-5 lead after the Mariners had trailed 5-1 in the second and Seager launched his 22nd of the season in the ninth to cap a three-hit night. The A's closed the gap with three runs in the sixth, but stranded two runners in both the seventh and eighth, en route to their third straight loss. Seattle has won seven of its last 10 games to improve to 64-71 and is 10-4 on the season against Oakland (58-77).
