Billy Butler has started only nine games for the Athletics this season and says he doesn't understand why.
Dae-Ho Lee hit a go-ahead two-run homer after an earlier solo shot for his first career multi-homer game, and the Seattle Mariners rallied for a back-and-forth 9-8 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Good matchup today in Oakland, where Felix Hernandez takes on A's rookie Sean Manaea, making his second start. Felix has struggled with walks but has limited hits and has a 1.38 ERA. Manaea is a big lefty with a 3/4 delivery reminiscent of Chris Sale's and a good slider -- although I'm not going to compare the slider to Sale's.

Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager and Leonys Martin hit home runs, Hisashi Iwakuma pitched seven solid innings and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 8-2 on Tuesday night.
Since the announcement of Tim Lincecum's showcase set for this Friday, the list of teams expected to attend -- and not attend -- has become clearer.
Davis proves problematic for Karns
Nathan Karns allowed three runs against the Athletics on Monday, all of which came via two Khris Davis home runs. The outfielder's second shot traveled a whopping 445 feet, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.
Monday's longest home runs
Khris Davis' second homer off Mariners starter Nathan Karns led the way on Monday, while a pair of Cardinals also made some noise in St. Louis.
Robinson Cano had three hits and scored twice, Kyle Seager hit a tiebreaking double in the sixth inning and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Monday night.
