OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Another solid outing from Mike Fiers and Jed Lowrie's 100th career home run helped the surging Oakland Athletics move a step closer to first place in the AL West.

The Seattle Mariners, who were eight games ahead of Oakland six weeks weeks ago, are just trying to stick around in the wild-card race, a task that got a little tougher following an injury to ace James Paxton's pitching arm.

Jed Lowrie hit a two-run homer after his line drive knocked Paxton out of the game in the first inning, and Oakland beat Seattle 3-2 on Tuesday night to move within one game of the slumping Houston Astros.
