MLB Game Preview: Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners - Date: 9/26/2020 A's face Mariners, looking for wave of momentum into playoffsThe Oakland Athletics are looking to build some momentum going into the postseason.Maybe the 10th inning Friday night will help.Ramon Laureano doubled home the tying run with two outs in the bottom of the 10th, and Mark Canha followed with a two-run homer as the A's defeated the visiting Seattle Mariners 3-1 in the opener of a four-game series that wraps up the regular season.The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday, with the Mariners (25-32) the home team in one of the games because a three-game series Sept. 1-3 in Seattle was postponed because of a positive COVID-19 test in the A's organization."We have a lot of guys that are clutch. Ramon's one of those guys, and I consider myself one of those guys," Canha said. "The moment's never too big for us as a team. We have that kind of special ability to win in dramatic fashion. It's a good thing to have." The A's (35-22) moved past Minnesota in the chase for the second seed in the expanded American League playoffs.Before Friday, the A's were hitting .218 in 22 games this month. Sports Handicapping Sites. They didn't exactly break out against the Mariners, failing to score in the first nine innings."You give us a chance late and we've shown that we can win games like that here at home," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. "It's a little different on the road when you don't have the last at-bat." It was the sixth walk-off victory of the season for the A's, who are 21-8 at the Coliseum.A's hitting coach Darren Bush said the team's problems at the plate stem from "a lot of indecision." "Guys want to have success and are being a little indecisive and passive, which makes you miss pitches," Bush said. "Then you try to get a little aggressive by expanding the zone and miss pitches you should hit. ..."We just talk about picking a zone and staying in that zone to look for the pitch you want to hit instead of going up there trying to find the baseball. Get up there, have a plan and stick to your plan. Fight to get that pitch," Bush said.Coming into the series, the A's had been held to six hits or fewer in 10 of 11 games.
