Maurer held the A's to two runs on six hits in 6.1 innings Saturday to earn his fifth win of the season.
The win was his first since Aug. 20, and his most recent run as a member of the Mariners' rotation went more swimmingly than his earlier auditions. His final three starts came against teams that are either in the playoffs (A's and Tigers) or were in the playoff hunt at the time (Royals). He had a 2.45 ERA and a 17:4 K:BB over those 18.1 frames, which should at least put him in the mix for a rotation spot in the spring.
