OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) J.A. Happ acknowledged his frustration through a series of losses and no-decisions that had piled up since early May. He got a breather Friday night.
Nelson Cruz, Seth Smith, Brad Miller and Logan Morrison all hit two-run homers and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 9-5 Friday night for their third win in four games.
Happ (4-5) snapped a personal four-game slide with six strong innings, giving up three runs and eight hits. He struck out five and walked none.
