SEATTLE — Leonys Martin hit a game-ending, two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Seattle Mariners a 6-5 comeback victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.
Seattle trailed 5-2 after seven innings but got a two-run homer from Robinson Cano in the eighth.
Oakland closer Ryan Madson came on in the ninth and got two quick outs before Norichika Aoki punched a double down the left field line.
Martin then drove a 1-2 pitch deep over the wall in right-center for his ninth home run.
Oakland erased a 2-1 deficit in the sixth, jumping on the Mariners bullpen to complete a four-run rally capped by Coco Crisp’s bases-loaded double off Mike Montgomery.
Montgomery wasn’t charged with the runs and finished the game with 3 1/3 scoreless innings.
Cano put the Mariners up 1-0 in the first, following a one-out single by Seth Smith with an RBI double to left-center.
