The A's were set to win their series in Seattle and were rolling all game long Tuesday night. Then, two swings changed everything.
The A's took a 5-4 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but Ryan Madson gave up a walk-off home run to Leonys Martin as Mariners pulled out a 6-5 win.
After scoring five runs on Monday night, Bob Melvin is trotting out the same lineup against Nathan Karns and the Mariners on Tuesday.
