Neal bright spot in Athletics' 5-1 loss to Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) At this point of the season, the Oakland Athletics have to take their positives where ever they can get them.

In a 5-1 loss to Seattle on Friday night - Oakland's 10th in 11 games - the bright spot was Zach Neal, who retired all 15 batters he faced to become just the second reliever in club history to pitch at least five perfect innings. The other was Dennis Eckersley, who pitched six perfect innings of relief in 1987.

"He's come a long way," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He's had two days off, and gives us five innings of nothing against a team who looked like they were going to score 30 runs in the first couple innings."
