A's shut out Mariners 9-0 in finale

SEATTLE — Sonny Gray's tuneup for his first stint in the postseason went as Oakland manager Bob Melvin hoped.

But it came with no guarantees that Gray will be in the Athletics' rotation for the AL Division Series against Detroit, at least until it's officially announced.

"You can make your own assumptions," Melvin said. "I really don't want to say anything right now until we have it all decided and that probably happens at some point in time tomorrow."

Gray threw five shutout innings, Oakland had a pair of four-run innings and the Athletics closed out the regular season with a 9-0 win over Seattle in Eric Wedge's final game as Mariners manager.

The A's now turn their attention to the ALDS against Detroit that will begin Friday in Oakland, while Seattle enters the offseason with another managerial search on the docket.
