Kyle Seager hit a two-run double soon after right fielder Mark Canha appeared to lose a flyball in the sun, and the Seattle Mariners rallied in the eighth inning to beat the Oakland Athletics 6-3 on Sunday.

Mallex Smith homered for the second time in three games for the last-place Mariners, a day after they traded AL home run leader Edwin Encarnación to the New York Yankees.

Khris Davis hit his 15th home run for Oakland and Ramón Laureano also went deep.

The Mariners trailed 3-2 when Lou Trivino (2-5) issued a one-out walk. Domingo Santana followed with a fly that bounced off Canha’s glove for his first error in 153 games, putting runners at first and second.

After Daniel Vogelbach walked, Seager ended a 2-for-20 funk with a go-ahead double. Tom Murphy added a sacrifice fly and Dee Gordon hit an RBI triple.

Mike Leake (6-6) matched his season high with seven strikeouts in seven innings. He allowed two earned runs and seven hits and didn’t walk a batter to win his third straight.
