News: Lester struck out five and did not walk a batter, while holding the Mariners to two runs on seven hits over eight innings in a losing effort Wednesday. Impact: Felix Hernandez was simply better on the other side, limiting the Oakland offense to an Adam Dunn solo home run. All seven of Lester's starts with the A's have been quality outings, but he's been saddled with a loss in three of his last four turns. He'll seek wins No. 14 and 15 next week, first against the White Sox on Tuesday before a second start September 14 against the Mariners at Safeco Field.(RotoWire, )
