Recap: Oakland vs. Seattle

Tokyo, Japan (Sports Network) - Dustin Ackley hit a solo home run and knocked in the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th inning, helping the Seattle Mariners edge the Oakland Athletics, 3-1, in the first game of the 2012 Major League Baseball season from the Tokyo Dome.

Ichiro Suzuki returned to his native land with a 4-for-5 performance at the plate for the Mariners, who finished last in the American League West last year with a 67-95 mark. Suzuki, who had an RBI single in the 11th, is batting No. 3 in the order this season.

Felix Hernandez, making his fifth career Opening Day start, gave up one run on five hits over eight innings. He also fanned six batters. Tom Wilhelmsen (1-0) pitched two scoreless frames to pick up the win.

Kurt Suzuki drove in the lone run for the Athletics, who went 74-88 last season.

Brandon McCarthy allowed one run on six hits over seven full frames. Andrew Carignan (0-1) took the loss after giving up two runs in the 11th.

Seattle has a six-game Opening Day winning streak, while Oakland has lost each of its last eight openers, which is the longest active Opening Day losing streak in the majors and the longest since Philadelphia lost eight straight from 1985-92.
