Pineda, Bard lead Mariners over Athletics 2-1

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ Michael Pineda and three relievers combined on a three-hitter and Josh Bard hit his first home run of the season to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 2-1 victory over the Athletics on Monday. Justin Smoak added a tiebreaking RBI double in the seventh inning for the Mariners, who opened a key seven-game road trip against division rivals with their third win in four games. The strong start by Pineda (8-5) helped spoil the return of Brandon McCarthy (1-5) from the disabled list for Oakland. McCarthy faced the minimum batters through 5 2-3 innings but ended up losing his fifth straight decision. He gave up two runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings and is 0-5 in his last eight starts despite having six quality starts in that span.
