GAME: Mariners (73-85, 4th, AL West, - 19.5 GB) at Athletics (90-68, 2nd, AL West, - 2.5 GB). GAME #: 159. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 19th (Athletics lead 11-7). WHEN: Sunday, 1:07 p.m., Oakland Coliseum, Oakland, CA. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (Seattle, 1-3, 3.42) vs. LHP Tommy Milone (Oakland, 13-10, 3.74). STREAKS: Mariners L 2; Athletics W 2. TV: Root Sports. RADIO: 770-AM, Mariners Radio Network
The Mariners entered their weekend series with an opportunity to spoil Oakland's playoff plans, but got beat both Friday and Saturday due to a combination of lousy pitching and uncharacteristically bad defense. Blake Beavan couldn't keep the ball down Friday and the A's made him pay with home runs, and the Seattle bullpen imploded Saturday after a fine start by Jason Vargas, squandering a 4-1 lead and losing 7-4.
The Mariners, who also made two errors Friday, giving them 12 in a 14-game span, finish off their season series with the Athletics Sunday afternoon. At the start of the campaign, the widespread belief was that Seattle and Oakland would spend the season battling for third place in the AL West.
Instead, the Athletics are second in the division and still in Wild Card contention. The Mariners have effectively been out of the running for anything since the All-Star break.
For their last road game of the season, the Mariners will send Erasmo Ramirez to the mound to face Tommy Milone. A closer look at the probables:MARINERS: RHP Erasmo Ramirez (1-3, 3.42 ERA, 0.98 WHIP)
The 22-year-old Ramirez, in his first major league season, will make his eighth start, his fifth since his recall from AAA Tacoma, and his second against the Athletics. Ramirez, who has had a pair of relief appearances since his recall, lost to the A's 1-0 June 25, took a no-decision in an inning of relief Sept.7, and is coming off a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels Sept. 25. He has lost three of his past four decisions.
A native of Rivas, Nicaragua, the 5-11, 205-pound Ramirez came to the Mariners in 2007 as an amateur free agent. He began his professional career in 2008 with the Mariners entry in the Venezuelan summer league. He also pitched for the club in 2009, posting an 11-1 record.
That earned him a promotion to Class A Clinton of the Midwest League in 2010, when he went 10-4. Ramirez pitched for AA Jackson and AAA Tacoma in 2011. He went a combined 10-8.
Ramirez made his major league debut April 9, working in relief of Hector Noesi in an 11-9 Texas win over Seattle at Rangers Ballpark. He pitched 3.0 innings and allowed one run on two hits and surrendered a home run. He did not factor in the decision.
After allowing earned runs in each of his first three appearances, he did not allow any in his last four. The Mariners had seen enough to send him down to Tacoma in order to build him back into a starter. When the Mariners had seen enough of Blake Beavan’s troubles, they farmed him out and recalled Ramirez June 12.
During Ramirez’s June 30 start against Boston, Ramirez suffered a right flexor elbow strain and had to come out of the game. The Mariners subsequently placed him on the 15-day disabled list. When he was healthy enough to pitch, he was sent to Tacoma. In 15 starts for the Rainiers, Ramirez went 6-3, 3.72. Ramirez worked one inning of relief against Oakland Sept. 7.

The 25-year-old Milone, in his third major league season and first with the Athletics, will make his 31st start and fifth against the Mariners. Milone lost 4-0 April 13, defeated Seattle 1-0 June 25, had a no-decision July 6 and defeated Seattle 4-2 Sept. 9. Milone is coming off a no-decision against the Texas Rangers Sept. 25.
A native of Sagus, CA., the 6-0, 205-pound Milone pitched for the University of Southern California, finishing his career with 45 starts, placing him ninth on USC’s all-time list in a tie with Sid Akins (1982-84). Milone went 16-17 in his USC career, allowing only 60 walks in 273.0 career innings. He earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention. Led the team in innings (97.1), complete games (2) and strikeouts (98). Opponents hit just .251 against him as he allowed only four home runs.
The Washington Nationals selected Milone in the 10th round of the 2008 amateur draft. Milone began his pro career with Class A Vermont in the New York-Penn League in 2008. He pitched for A Hagerstown (2008, Sally League), Potomac (2009, Carolina League), AA Harrisburg (2010, Eastern League) and AAA Syracuse (2011, International League).
Milone made his debut with the Nationals Sept. 3, 2011, working 4.1 innings as Washington’s starter in what became an 8-7 victory over the New York Mets. Milone, who allowed four runs on six hits, received a no-decision.
Milone appeared in five games (1-0, 3.81 ERA). On Dec. 23, 2011, the Nationals traded Milone, along with A.J. Cole (minors), Derek Norris (minors) and Brad Peacock, to the Athletics for Robert Gilliam (minors) and Gio Gonzalez.
Milone made his Oakland debut April 9, and secured a spot in the team’s rotation after defeating the Kansas City Royals 1-0.
- 2012: Milone has pitched into the seventh inning in 14 of his starts. He has allowed two or fewer runs 17 times. He had his worst outing June 13 at Colorado, allowing eight earned runs in 4.0 innings. He has given up 24 home runs.

- LOG: The Mariners lost their 11th game of the season Saturday via a walk-off hit when Brandon Moss parked a three-run shot off Steven Pryor in the 10th inning. It was second walk-off hit allowed by Pryor in a week . . . Tom Wilhelmsen's blown save Saturday denied Jason Vargas what would have been a team-high 15 victories.
