SEATTLE (AP) — Jarred Kelenic scored the winning run on a Lou Trivino's wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth, Mitch Haniger homered twice and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 5-4.

It was the second game in a row Seattle has won on a wild pitch in the series after Dylan Moore scored from second on Friday night on two consecutive wild pitches to give the Mariners a 4-3 win. 

They are a major league-best 22-8 in one-run games this season and have won eight of their last 12. 

Trivino (3-4) gave up a single to Luis Torrens to start the ninth. Torrens, a catcher, exited for Walton. 

Trivino walked two of the next three batters to load the bases. 

Kendall Graveman (3-0) pitched the ninth for the win.
