SEATTLE (AP) — Sonny Gray limited the Seattle Mariners to just six hits and one unearned run and the Oakland Athletics earned a 4-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

Gray earned his 10th victory and Sean Doolittle recorded the final four outs for his 14th save.

James Jones singled and advanced to third on an errant pickoff attempt from Gray. Jones scored on an RBI groundout from Robinson Cano to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead in the first.

Seattle squandered an opportunity to add to its lead in the fourth inning. Cano and Kyle Seager singled to put runners on the corners with no outs. Gray worked out of the jam with a strikeout of Dustin Ackley leaving the runners stranded.

After managing just one hit off Seattle starter Chris Young (8-6) through four innings, the Athletics broke through in the fifth inning.

Negotiations between the league and the players' association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week.
