Making his first start of the season while working on three days of rest, Houston pitcher Brad Peacock knew he was on a short leash.
On a day when his fastball didn't have much bite and his breaking pitches were flat, Jesse Chavez finally got the victory that had eluded him through the first two weeks of the season.
Even after every momentum swing, dramatic hit and terrible relief performance in an 11-inning game, the Oakland Athletics still were unshakably confident somebody would pull them through.
The consensus afterward was the best from Oakland's Sonny Gray is yet to show.
The chance was there in the first inning for Seattle to take advantage of Oakland's Sonny Gray, with the middle of the Mariners order coming to the plate.
Jim Johnson struggled again. The Oakland Athletics picked up their new closer with a strong finish.
As much as Scott Kazmir won over Oakland fans with his dazzling debut, new Athletics closer Jim Johnson is losing them with another ninth-inning meltdown.
Scott Kazmir pitched two-hit ball into the sixth inning, Josh Reddick hit a two-run homer and the Oakland Athletics beat the San Francisco Giants 4-0 on Thursday night.
Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes hit his first home run of spring training, but the Seattle Mariners rallied for four runs in the ninth inning to beat a split-squad of Athletics on Sunday.
"It was one of the first times all year that our starting pitching struggled," Donaldson said. "The ninth inning happened, but we were able to come back and get it. Our pitching and defense have been doing really well this year, and tonight it was our offense picking them up."
Donaldson said the baserunners are put in a difficult position.
