Langerhans' HR sends M's over A's in 10

Posted:

SEATTLE (AP) - Defensive-replacement Ryan Langerhans homered off Craig Breslow with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning to send the Seattle Mariners to a 4-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.

Franklin Gutierrez's singled with one out in the 10th off Breslow (5-7), who entered the game tied in losses among AL relievers. It was Gutierrez's fifth hit and seventh time on base in the two games he's been leading off while Ichiro Suzuki rests a tight calf muscle.

Then Langerhans, who entered for defense the inning before, smacked a 2-2 pitch into the first row of seats beyond right field. It was his second game-ending home run as a late-game substitute in three weeks.

Mark Lowe (2-6) pitched the 10th for the win.
