SEATTLE -- Manager Scott Servais was not prepared to give the season-e

SEATTLE -- Manager Scott Servais was not prepared to give the season-ending speech to his team. He expected the Seattle Mariners season to matter for at least a few more days -- and possibly well into October.After 10 wild innings that personified their season, the Mariners playoff hopes ended on Saturday night, extending baseballs longest postseason drought to 15 years with a 9-8 loss to the Oakland Athletics.Were not breathing anymore, Servais said.Weeks of living on the edge of playoff contention finally caught up with Seattle in game No. 161. Edwin Diaz gave up a one-out RBI double to Joey Wendle in the 10th and the Mariners were unable to mount one last rally after coming from behind four times earlier in the game.Ben Gamel was standing at second base with no outs in the 10th after a single and wild pitch. He advanced to third when Nelson Cruzs comebacker deflected off pitcher Ryan Madson (6-7) almost directly to first base, but the fortunate ricochet for Oakland prevented Gamel from possibly scoring.Kyle Seager flew out to center field for the final out and final gasp in Seattles quest to get back to the playoffs.Ive only been a Mariner for a year, but I have to believe that will go down as one of the most memorable games in Mariners history, Servais said. Unfortunately, it didnt go our way. You know, cant say enough about our team. The competitive spirit.The Mariners last reached the postseason in 2001 when they tied the major league record with 116 wins in the regular season but were eliminated in the AL Championship Series by the New York Yankees.They were hoping to take their playoff chances to the final day of the regular season for the second time in three years. After rallying for three runs in the seventh and one in the eighth to tie it 8-8, the Mariners couldnt make game No. 162 count.Bruce Maxwell opened the 10th with a double off Diaz (0-4), and Wendles fourth hit of the night put Oakland in front.To get as many contributions from so many guys on the roster today in particular some of the younger guys. ... This is really going to serve them well in the future knowing they can play in this type of atmosphere, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said.Seattle was well aware it needed a victory to stay alive in the wild-card race as highlights and updates of the other games were shown in the stadium throughout the early innings. New York, New York played during batting practice after the Yankees knocked off Baltimore, and cheers erupted when Atlanta beat Detroit.But there were groans abound after Toronto scored in the ninth to beat Boston and turn Seattles task into a must-win.Everybody had a taste of what it (is) to be in a playoff atmosphere, Cruz said. It was like that for like a week. It was a great run. Ive played a lot of games and it was an incredible run.The Mariners rallied from 5-2 and 7-4 deficits to pull even at 7-all in the seventh inning after a two-run home run from Cruz, his 43rd of the season. Oakland took an 8-7 lead in the eighth but Gamels two-out single scored Mike Freeman to tie the game again. It was Gamels first hit since Sept. 18 after going hitless in his previous 11 at-bats.But Seattle will lament missed opportunities in the eighth and ninth innings. Each time Seattle had the bases loaded with two outs and couldnt push across another run. Jesus Sucre was hit by a pitch to load the bases with two outs in the ninth and Nori Aokis lined one-hopper was snagged at second base by Wendle to end the threat.Im walking back to the dugout, I really liked our matchup with Nori facing Madson and he hits a one-hopper right at the second basemen. Last inning, (Cruz) hits a ball off Madsons leg. You know, its a game of inches and we were playing on the slightest of margins and we just didnt quite get over the hump, Servais said. A little bit like our season, I guess.SHAKY STARTLost in the drama of all the late action was a shaky final performance by Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma. After carrying the Mariners for stretches of the season, Iwakuma lasted just 3 2/3 innings and gave up five runs in his last start of the year. He finished 16-12 on the season.I was just missing a lot of my pitches to the fat part of the plate. It cost me a lot, Iwakuma said through an interpreter.UP NEXTAthletics: Left-hander Sean Manaea (6-9) closes out his rookie season on Sunday. Since coming off the disabled list in mid-September, Manaea is 1-0 with a 0.50 ERA in three starts.Mariners: Felix Hernandez (11-7) makes his final start of the year. Hernandez lost his last start against Houston. Adidas NMD R1 Dames . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Adidas NMD R1 Zwart . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.nmdschoenenkopen.nl/adidas-n … q4498.html . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Adidas NMD Dames Wit . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. Adidas NMD Heren Wit . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists.

Thankfully they did a great job without me. It just shows how good we are as a unit and today I just wanted to be really aggressive and that was pretty much it.He kept hitting from 3-point range to keep the Mustangs at bay. The closest they got in the second half was 13 points when they hit two 3s to open the second half.Coach has been giving me the green light to not worry about the missed shots, Walton said. I miss a couple, I kind of shake it off. I feel like my guys had confidence in me as well, so that does wonders for my confidence as well.Walton, who had seven 3s total in the first three games, was 4 of 6 from 3 in the first half as Michigan took control right away and went on to a 44-25 halftime lead.Zak Irvin, the tournament MVP, added 16 points for the Wolverines (4-0), while Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had 12.The last loss we had to them, we basically got punked throughout the whole game and we knew we werent going to let that happen this game, Irvin said of the 24-point loss. We came out with a chip on our shoulder. Derrick really started it off on the offensive end but also collectively on the defensive end. We held them to 37 percent from the field, thats huge for us.Semi Ojeleye led the Mustangs (3-1), who beat Pittsburgh in the opening round, with 13 points and nine rebounds.Michigan played about as good a game as anybody has played against us in over four and change years, Mustangs coach Tim Jankovich said.dddddddddddd I think they were absolutely outstanding. I thought everything they tried to do, include hit a number of guarded shots, it was incredible. I thought they were terrific.Michigan, which had only four turnovers, finished 13 of 31 from 3-point range, led by Waltons 7 of 12. SMU was 6 of 16 from beyond the arc.BIG PICTURE:Michigan: It was nothing new for Michigan to light it up from 3-point range.
