OAKLAND (AP) — Mike Zunino hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning and Guillermo Heredia doubled home the go-ahead run in the 10th as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Oakland Athletics 3-2 on Tuesday night.
The Mariners have won four straight games and six of their last eight.
Jean Segura singled with one out in the 10th ahead of Heredia’s one-out double to right-center off Yusmeiro Petit (1-1).
Nick Vincent (3-1) pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief, and Edwin Diaz earned his 16th save.
Seattle trailed 2-0 when Zunino hit his seventh homer, off starter Trevor Cahill.
Oakland built a two-run lead in the middle innings. Marcus Semien scored on Matt Chapman’s double-play grounder in the fourth and added an RBI single in the fifth.
The Mariners have won 13 of their last 16 games against the A’s and are 42-22 versus Oakland since 2015.
