Fiers set to follow no-hitter as A's face Mariners


The Oakland right-hander will be happy with keeping his team in the game when the Athletics visit the Seattle Mariners on Monday in the opener of a two-game set.


"It's a great moment, you want to enjoy it," the 33-year-old Fiers told reporters while reflecting on Tuesday's no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds .


Seattle is a divisional team, I need to put up a quality start and give us a chance to win."


He followed that outing by allowing one run and three hits over a season-long 7 2/3 innings while beating the New York Yankees last Wednesday.


Kikuchi gave up two runs (one earned) and four hits in 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision when he started against Oakland in Tokyo on March 21.


Khris Davis was back in the lineup as the designated hitter after missing three straight games due to a hip injury.
