Mariners 7 Athletics 1

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. - Adrian Beltre went five-for-five with two homers and the Seattle Mariners took advantage of four errors by Oakland third baseman Marco Scutaro to beat the Athletics 7-to-1.

Beltre hit a solo homer in the second inning and a two-run shot in the eighth for the Mariners, who are 2-and-3 under new manager John McLaren. Beltre also had two doubles.

Oakland starter Dan Haren was looking to win his eleventh straight decision. Instead he fell to 10-and-3. This is his first loss since April seventh.

Scutaro, starting in place of banged-up Gold Glove winner Eric Chavez, joined 23 other A-L third baseman with four errors in a game. He made two throwing errors and botched two grounders in the eighth.
