Mariners get Segura back, recall Gamel

The Mariners got All-Star Jean Segura back in time for the start of a three-game series with the Houston Astros. And after an anemic offensive output over the weekend, the M's also recalled Ben Gamel from Triple-A Tacoma.

Fun playoff-like game in Oakland as the A's and Astros battle for first place. The Astros lead 6-4 as Brad Peacock escaped a bases-loaded jam in the sixth with an eight-pitch strikeout of Mark Canha. The Astros, however, have lost seven games they've led after six innings -- including five games they've led after eight. Stay tuned.

The A's are relentless. The Astros score four in the top of the the third to take a 4-2 lead, but Khris Davis belts a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning off the top off the center-field fence, his second of the game off Justin Verlander and his 36th of the season. Verlander continues to struggle with the long ball: He's now allowed 14 in his past seven starts.

And just like that, the A's have incredibly tied up the AL West after Trevor Cahill blanked the Astros for seven innings, allowing just one hit while mixing four pitches and getting six swinging strikeouts, four with his curve. The 74-49 record is Oakland's best through 123 games since 1992.

Robinson Canó is back in the Mariners lineup tonight, hitting second and playing first base. He has never played first base in an MLB regular-season game. Canó was reinstated today after serving an 80-game suspension for violating baseball's joint drug agreement.

Blake Treinen is on pace for 42 saves and a 0.90 ERA. He'd become only the fourth pitcher in history with 40-plus saves and a sub-1 ERA at that rate, joining Dennis Eckersley (1990), Fernando Rodney (2012) and Zach Britton (2016).
