Mariner Bats Go Quiet in 3-0 Loss to A's

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Brandon McCarthy pitched a three-hitter for his first shutout in more than two years, leading the Oakland Athletics to a 3-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

McCarthy (8-7) matched his career high of 10 strikeouts and faced only four over the minimum while beating Seattle for the first time in three starts this season. The right-hander allowed three singles and finished the gem in style, slipping a called third strike past Mike Carp on his 114th pitch.

Cliff Pennington had a two-run double and Scott Sizemore homered to help the A's win their third straight after dropping five in a row.
