Mariners to spring Leake on Athletics

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Seattle Mariners will try to capitalize on two pieces of good news even in defeat Tuesday night when they wrap up a key three-game series against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday afternoon.

Veterans Mike Leake (8-7, 4.11 ERA) of the Mariners and Brett Anderson (2-3, 4.53) of the A's are scheduled to duel in the series finale after Oakland used one-run wins Monday and Tuesday to increase their 1 1/2-game lead over Seattle to 3 1/2 in the American League wild-card race. The A's also crept to within one game of Houston for the AL West lead.

The Mariners were able to get Robinson Cano immediately back into the swing of things in Tuesday's 3-2 loss after the standout infielder had missed 80 straight games on drug suspension.
