OAKLAND, Calif. Zach Parise Jersey . -- Adam Dunn is in a pennant race at last, and what an impression he made on his new team as the September stretch run began. Dunn provided instant pop for the struggling Athletics, hitting a towering, two-run homer in his debut at-bat for Oakland to highlight a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday in a matchup of playoff contenders. "I can speak pretty passionately about it, these chances dont come around very often, especially for some of us," said the 34-year-old Dunn, who has never played in the post-season. "Were going to take full advantage." Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound Dunn immediately became an imposing presence in the middle of Oaklands order. Dunn is the 12th player in Oakland history to homer in his first at-bat with the team. A 14th-year major leaguer, Dunn homered during a five-run first inning. His drive was a welcome sight for a team that just got swept in a four-game series by the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels and was shut out for 29 straight innings. "Thats the most excited, anxious, probably call it a little nervous, than Ive been in a long time," said Dunn, who was thrown off by the celebratory tunnel formed by teammates in the dugout. The As broke loose a day after manager Bob Melvin let them have it in a closed-door team meeting. He called his teams play "embarrassing and "pathetic" after the As totalled just four runs in the sweep at Anaheim. "They ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and the game was over," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "It wasnt our day." Dunn went 2 for 3 batting cleanup as the designated hitter. He provided a nice lift for an Oakland offence that has struggled since dealing Yoenis Cespedes to Boston for Jon Lester on July 31. With 461 career home runs, Dunn tied Red Sox star David Ortiz for 35th place on the all-time list. Dunn quickly staked Jason Hammel (2-5) to a lead. Hammel also started the season in Chicago, and was traded by the Cubs in July. "It had a little bit of a storybook-type theme," Melvin said of Dunns debut. "Weve really been lacking early energy, runs, he comes up to the plate and youre thinking to yourself, Boy, wouldnt it be great? And he delivers. You got goosebumps. It was awesome." Hammel allowed three hits and struck out five in eight innings to end a three-start winless stretch. It was just his second win since joining the As from the Cubs on July 4. Another recent acquisition, Geovany Soto, added a two-run single with two outs in the first that chased Chris Young (12-7) for the shortest start of his career. A sellout crowd of 36,067 saw the As win after a stretch in which they lost five of six. "Thats the best crowd Ive ever played with," Dunn said. "Im serious. Its unbelievable. If its like that every night here, its going to be a fun little ride." Brad Miller homered leading off the sixth for Seattle, which came into the series opener as the American Leagues top road team. Robinson Canos 21-game hitting streak against the As ended. It dated to Sept. 22, 2012. TRAINERS ROOM Mariners: OF Michael Saunders, on the disabled list since July 11 with a strained left oblique, reported to Arizona to work on strengthening and get some at-bats in simulated games before the club determines the next step in his rehab. Athletics: CF Coco Crisp will have more trigger-point injections for neck stiffness after colliding with the outfield wall Friday. He hit batting practice right-handed. C John Jaso (concussion) swung in the indoor cage and hopes to hit outside Tuesday. UP NEXT Mariners: LHP James Paxton (4-1, 1.83) makes his first career appearance against the As as he looks to win his second straight start. Paxton is 7-1 with a 1.71 ERA in 11 career starts. Athletics: RHP Sonny Gray (13-7, 3.03) is 4-0 with a 1.10 ERA in his first five starts against Seattle, his most victories against any team. ROSTER MOVES Mariners: Placed 1B-DH Jesus Montero on the suspended list. The 24-year-old Montero was recalled from his rehabilitation assignment Friday following a verbal altercation with a Mariners scout at a Class A Northwest League game. ... September call-up RHP Carson Smith made his major league debut in the eighth. He threw two pitches and retired Josh Donaldson on a grounder. Athletics: Reinstated SS Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list and he singled in his first at-bat since Aug. 13. He suffered a hairline fracture of his right index finger Aug. 4. Phil Kessel Jersey . Ashton scored a hat trick -- giving him 13 goals in 16 AHL games this season -- to power the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Lake Erie Monsters in AHL action on Sunday. Kyle Palmieri Jersey . Berkman almost left the game last off-season before signing with the Texas Rangers. He then had another injury-plagued season and was limited to 73 games. http://www.hockeyauthenticusaonline....skanen-Jersey/ . Louis second-period goal increased the New York Rangers lead but Dustin Brown has countered for the Los Angeles Kings who now trail the New York Rangers 2-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final at Madison Square Garden. OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- His voice cracking with emotion, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice acknowledged Friday that he "failed miserably" and apologized for the actions that led to his arrest on assault charges. Rice was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in which he allegedly struck fiancee Janay Palmer. The couple married in late February, and both went to the stage at the team training complex for their first public comment since the arrest. "I failed miserably, but I wouldnt call myself a failure because Im working my way back up," he said. Wearing a light grey suit and striped tie, Rice spoke for just over six minutes and didnt take questions. His speech was not prepared, but he often referred to notes on his cellphone. "I know many of my supporters, sponsors, dont want to be in partnership with me. Thats my fault," Rice said. "I take full responsibility for that. One thing I do know is that Im working every day to be a better father, a better husband and just a better role model." Rice was accepted Tuesday into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being expunged. "I want you to know Im still the Ray Rice that you know, or used to know, or grown to love," Rice said. "Im still the same guy. As me and Janay wish we could take back 30 seconds of our life, we definitely sit here and tell you that we are better parents, we are better lovers and also better friends." Among those in attendance were Rices mother, Janet, and his father-in-law, Joe Palmer. Rice was only 5 when his father was shot and killed, and he referred to Joe Palmer as the" father I never had. Brandon Dubinsky Jersey. quot; "Thank you for teaching me how to be a man," he told Palmer. "I know it wasnt easy when you saw everything that happened, but I just remember your words: Youll get through it. Those words will always stick with me, because one thing you gave me is trust." The 27-year-old Rice has played six years for the Ravens. He is the teams career leader in total scrimmage yards and ranks behind only Jamal Lewis in total yards rushing. "My job is a very powerful job, and Im blessed to be playing at the highest level of sports," Rice said. "But the job I did was more than scoring touchdowns. It was getting out in the community and helping out. So when this thing happened with me and my wife, one thing I can say is, sometimes in life you will fail." Rice is eager to put this behind him, but its possible that a suspension from the NFL looms ahead. His focus now, however, is clearly on his personal life. "There were a lot of tears shed, but me and Janay can truly say were in a better place," Rice said. "We just hope to one day gain back everyones trust. Were still the same people and Im still the same person." After Rice was done speaking, he turned toward Janay, who enforced the couples united front. "I do deeply regret the role I played in the incident that night," she said. "But I can say that I am happy that we continue to work through it together. I love Ray, and I know that he will continue to prove himself not only to you all, but to the community, and I know he will gain your respect back in due time."
