Recap: Oakland vs. Seattle

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Friday's contest between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics has been postponed due to poor field conditions at O.co Coliseum.

It's the second time this season the A's have had a game postponed. Oakland's second game of the season was postponed due to inclement weather, causing the first rain-out in Oakland since May 5, 1998 vs. Detroit.

The infield at O.co Coliseum, which has been criticized for its drainage problems in the past, was deemed unplayable on Friday following rain in the area throughout the day.

A makeup date for the game has not been announced.

Chris Young was slated to make his first start since 2012 for Seattle, while Dan Straily was set to toe the rubber for the A's in the second test of this four-game series.

Oakland won the opener, 3-2, on Coco Crisp's leadoff homer in the bottom of the 12th inning on Thursday.

There isn't much after that. The Miami Marlins are loaded up for a playoff push -- likely through a wild card spot -- and the New York Mets are up-and- coming but still raw. The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies, former powerhouses of the division, are going through rebuilds and won't contend anytime soon.
