SEATTLE (AP) — Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said he wasn’t paying much attention to the out-of-town scoreboard at Safeco Field during his team’s 9-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.No matter Youth Jamie McGinn Jersey , Melvin and his team got the result they wanted.Matt Olson hit a grand slam that capped a six-run fifth inning. Khris Davis added his major league-leading 47th home run and the A’s moved closer in the AL wild-card race.The Athletics took advantage of the Yankees‘ 8-7 loss to Tampa Bay to move within 1 1/2 games of New York atop the wild-card standings.Oakland (96-63) improved to a big league-best 41-21 since the All-Star break. New York (97-61) holds the tiebreaker to host the Oct. 3 game; the winner advances to the Division Series against AL East champion Boston.“We’re just trying to win every game we can,” Melvin said. “Now, we have to balance it with who we’re playing and resting guys, but again, we feel good with whatever lineup we run out there.”With the score 3-all, Nick Martini hit an RBI single that chased Felix Hernandez (8-14), who made his first appearance since gaining American citizenship this week. Marcus Semien added a run-scoring single against Chasen Bradford before Olson’s drive to right-center.Chad Pinder also homered for the A’s, who reached 96 wins for the first time since 2013. Ryan Buchter (6-0) pitched a hitless inning in relief of Edwin Jackson, who gave up three runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings.“Everything now is just a day-at-a-time mentality,” Jackson said. “You can’t really look too far ahead. We’ll find out what’s next in due time.”Hernandez Womens Jared McCann Jersey , a 32-year-old Venezuelan who won the 2010 AL Cy Young Award, was sworn in as a U.S. citizen on Monday. He gave up five runs — four earned — three hits and two walks in four innings.Hernandez finished with a 5.55 ERA, more than a run above his previous career high last year. His ERA has more than doubled since he led the AL in 2014 at 2.14.“It’s kind of what we saw the majority of the year,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said of Hernandez.Meanwhile, aside from trying to play themselves into a home wild-card game, the A’s were saying they hope to see Davis reach a round-number long-ball milestone by the time the regular season ends Sunday.“I definitely want to see him get to 50,” Olson said. “I think he can do it, too. We’ll see.”CLOSING INMariners LHP James Paxton may start Saturday against Texas, giving him a chance to get the single strikeout he needs to reach 200 for the first time.FRONT OFFICESeattle hired Frankie Thon Jr. as head of amateur international scouting. Thon spent the previous two seasons with the Los Angeles Angels and before that was with Arizona for eight seasons.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) See ya, Sid. Hello, Jack Eichel.Once the shock of being traded wore off, Conor Sheary put aside his past of playing alongside Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, and began eagerly looking ahead to what might be in store with the Buffalo Sabres.”I wasn’t expecting it, but at the same time you have to look at the positives,” Sheary said Thursday, a day after the Buffalo gave up a conditional fourth-round draft pick to acquire him and defenseman Matt Hunwick.”I have to put my Pittsburgh years behind me now Keith Yandle Jersey ,” the third-year NHL forward said. ”I’m super excited with the new chapter in my life.”In Buffalo, Sheary gets the opportunity to recreate his role as a play-making, two-way forward on a line centered by Eichel.”When you’re playing with a guy like that, you kind of try to get him the puck as much as you can,” Sheary said.”I think a big part of my game is creating turnovers and getting chances for my linemates,” he added. ”Hopefully, we can create some chemistry there. It’ll be awesome and maybe we’ll grow something with that.”With two years left on his contract, Sheary was the odd-man out in Pittsburgh, which freed up $5.25 million in salary cap space in trading both players. The Penguins quickly used some of the savings to re-sign forward Riley Sheahan to a $2.1 million, one-year contract.The Sabres Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , by comparison, lack play-making depth at their top-line wing positions, especially after trading Evander Kane to San Jose in February. Buffalo’s top three centers and Kane accounted for scoring 94 of the team’s league-worst 199 goals last season.Five-on-five production was also an issue cited by general manager Jason Botterill as the reason he acquired Sheary. All but eight of Sheary’s 95 points in 184 career games have come in even-strength situations.Another benefit for the rebuilding Sabres was adding a two-time Stanley Cup winner to a team that has finished last in three of the past five seasons.”I think if I can just bring a little of that playoff experience to the locker room and try to change the culture, that’ll be a good thing,” said Sheary, who credited Crosby for being a mentor. ”He definitely taught me a lot. And I’ll definitely take that and use that to my advantage moving forward.”Botterill previously served as the Penguins assistant GM and had a hand in signing Sheary, who was a late bloomer in part because scouts considered him too small at 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds. Undrafted after completing his college career at UMass, he signed an amateur tryout contract with the Penguins’ AHL affiliate in March 2014.Two year later, Sheary made his NHL debut and eventually scored six goals, including a winner Vincent Trocheck Jersey , and 10 points during Pittsburgh’s first of two championship runs.After scoring 23 goals and 53 points in 61 games in 2016-17, Sheary’s production dropped last year, when he finished with 18 goals and 30 points in 79 games.Sheary blamed the drop-off on a lapse in confidence that lead to a midseason slump in which he had three goals and six assists in 35 games. He closed the year with six goals and two assists in his final 15 games.”I think toward the end of the year I finally found myself again,” he said. ”Although I didn’t score in the playoffs, I felt as though I was contributing. Hopefully, I can build on that going forward.”—
