A team-by-team look at the American League West entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad.
Paxton (5-1) gave up three hits through the seventh. Ahead 6-0, he was chased in Oakland’s three-run eighth, and the A’s nearly got even in a harried ninth
Chris Young pitched six shutout innings and was gone by the time the Oakland Athletics beat the Mariners 3-0.
Josh Reddick hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Yoenis Cespedes added a two-run shot in the sixth to lead the Oakland Athletics to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners on Thursday.
The season to date in the AL West is best summed up by one word: fireworks.
