Athletics, Mariners open four-game series

Jul 26, 2007 - 1:57 PM Oakland (48-53) at Seattle (54-45) 10:05 pm EDT

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Oakland Athletics continue their seven-game road swing when they visit the Seattle Mariners in the opener of a four-game series on Thursday.

Dan Haren (11-3, 2.41 ERA), who started for the American League in the All-Star Game, takes the hill for Oakland, which took two of three from Anaheim in its last series.

The hard-throwing righthander gave up three runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings en route to a 4-3 victory against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

Haren has managed a 5-3 with a 2.73 ERA in nine lifetime starts against the Mariners, who have defeated the 26-year-old twice this campaign.

Seattle counters with Jeff Weaver (2-8, 6.19), who is winless over his last four outings. But Weaver was more than solid last time out, allowing one run in eight frames of a 1-0 setback at Toronto.

The righthander, who is with his fourth time in as many years, is 3-3 in 10 career starts against Oakland. On July 6, Weaver yielded one run in five frames in a no-decision vs. the A's.
