Description: Athletics lefty reliever Sean Doolittle picked up a save Sunday against the Mariners.
Insight: Oakland went to Luke Gregerson for a two-out save Saturday after using Doolittle to set up, and on Sunday manager Bob Melvin reversed it and used Doolittle in the ninth because the Mariners had lefties Kyle Seager, Logan Morrison, Dustin Ackley and Michael Saunders due up. Ryan Cook may also get a save chance here or there as part of Oakland's committee, which replaced the ineffective Jim Johnson.
