ATHLETICS – Jorge Mateo, SS, OAK No. 8: Mateo provided a spark off the bench with one in his first at-bat, although he was not able to bring home the game-winning run from second base at the bottom of the eighth, flying out to center in his next plate appearance.
BLUE JAYS – Nate Pearson, RHP, TOR No. 2 | MLB No. 41: Pearson was dominant throughout his relief appearance, striking out two of the three batters he faced in a scoreless top of the fifth.
INDIANS – Nolan Jones, 3B, CLE No. 2 | MLB No. 43: Jones led off the bottom of the third but wasn’t able to begin a rally, grounding out to the pitcher in his only at-bat.

MARINERS – Jarred Kelenic, OF, SEA No. 1 | MLB No. 24: Kelenic struck the ball hard in all three of his at-bats but didn’t receive any hits to show for this, lining out twice and flying out into his other plate appearance.

Evan White, 1B, SEA No. 5 | MLB No. 81: White made great contact in his solitary at-bat, scorching a line drive to left that was gloved by Trammell to end the bottom of the second.
