Sep 12, 2007 - 1:53 PM iners look to bounce back vs. A's* ====================================== Oakland (71-75) at Seattle (75-68) 10:05 pm EDT

SEATTLE (Ticker) - The fading Seattle Mariners will try to get back on track when they meet the Oakland Athletics in the finale of a three-game series on Wednesday.

Miguel Batista (13-11, 4.73 ERA) gets the call for Seattle, which has fell 6 1/2 games behind the New York Yankees in the American League wild card chase after losing the first two games of the series.

On Tuesday, Mike Piazza had three hits, including a tie-breaking, two-run single in the sixth inning, and Mark Ellis contributed four hits as the Athletics posted a 7-4 victory.

The righthanded Batista will be looking for his first win in five starts.

In his last outing, the Dominican was tagged for six runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings of a 6-1 setback at the Detroit Tigers on Friday.

Batista is 3-4 with a 5.97 ERA in 16 appearances against the A's. Most recently, he gave up three runs and six hits in 7 2/3 innings in a 3-2 loss on July 5.

Oakland's Dan Haren (14-7, 3.03) goes in search of his first winning decision since August 21 at the Toronto Blue Jays - a span of three starts. In his last outing, Haren was tagged for five runs and a season-worst 12 hits in 4 2/3 frames of a 5-3 loss at the Texas Rangers on Friday.

The All-Star righthander is 3-1 with an impressive 1.93 ERA in four starts at Safeco Field. He is 6-3 with a 2.71 ERA overall against the Mariners.
