While the Oakland Athletics have already clinched the American League West title, they still have something to play for in the last few days of the regular season, dropping from the second to third position, a half-game behind the Minnesota Twins, with a 5-1 loss Thursday night against the host Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Mariners are scheduled to send left-hander Yusei Kikuchi (2-4, 5.93 ERA) to the mound Friday. Kikuchi is 0-2 with a 3.33 ERA in five career starts against Oakland.
The A's will counter with right-hander Chris Bassitt (5-2), who is third in the league with a 2.57 ERA.
