OAKLAND, Calif. — The moment of postgame celebration, spontaneous in its action and the acknowledgment from fans, was perhaps the most joy Jarred Kelenic felt on a baseball field and a defining image of last season’s improbable but failed run at a postseason slot.

Just under a year ago, Sept. 29, 2021, to be exact, Kelenic hit a big two-run double to help the Mariners defeat the A’s, 4-2.
