Saracens England international wing Chris Ashton is at the centre of an alleged biting controversy following the Aviva Premiership champions punishing 27-12 victory over Northampton at Allianz Park.Northampton rugby director Jim Mallinder confirmed after the game that Saints prop Alex Waller said he had been bitten on the hand.It followed a first-half incident when Ashtons mouth appeared to make contact with Wallers hand during a tangle on the floor.He [Waller] just repeated what he said to the referee [Greg Garner], in that he had been bitten on the hand, Mallinder said.Also asked about it during his post-match press conference, Saracens rugby director Mark McCall added: I have heard the accusation.I havent seen the incident. These things will run its [their] course. I suppose there is a good chance that Chris will be cited as a result, so we will see what happens.Ashton received a 10-week ban last season for making contact with the eye area of Ulster back Luke Marshall during a European Champions Cup game, although he protested his innocence throughout.If he is cited for biting -- and the charge is proved -- he could be looking at another long lay-off. Garner took no action at the time, and Ashtons fate now rests with match citing commissioner Mike Rafter.The 29-year-old former Northampton star, who has scored 19 tries in 39 appearances for England, is currently not part of England head coach Eddie Jones plans.Waller, meanwhile, was sin-binned in the second period for a dangerous tackle on Saracens hooker Jamie George, with Saracens scoring 12 unanswered points during his absence as the game turned on its head.Waller could be in trouble not only for the tackle, but also following a resulting skirmish when his head made contact with Georges face.Mallinder said: We had the ball, Alex got charged into and he took it too far.They [Saracens] are tough enough to beat when you have got 15 men, but when you are down to 14 for 20 minutes [Sam Dickinson was sin-binned later in the game], you are really up against it.Saints, meanwhile, saw their England international centre Luther Burrell leave the pitch in groggy fashion following a second-half tackle on Saracens skipper Brad Barritt, with Burrell leaving Allianz Park in an ambulance.

Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods. SEATTLE -- Mike Zunino picked a perfect time to snap out of his slump.Zunino delivered the go-ahead home run in the seventh inning and Seattle held on for a 3-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday night, keeping the Mariners on the edge of the AL wild-card chase.Its nice to be in that spot and its nice to come through, said Zunino, whose last home run was Sept. 11. Its nice when you go through struggles and work through it and get that opportunity and they go in your favor.Seattle is two games behind Baltimore and Toronto with three games to play. The Orioles defeated the Blue Jays 4-0 to pull even atop the wild-card race. Detroit, which was rained out against Cleveland, is a half-game ahead of the Mariners.We can only control what we do here, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. We need help. We know that. I think everybody thought the way Toronto was playing, theyd probably win two out of three at home. Didnt happen. The way we look at it, were still alive. Weve got to win tomorrows game and again, pray for a little help.Zunino, hitting .139 over his last 25 games, opened the seventh with his 12th home run, sending a 2-2 pitch from Liam Hendriks (0-4) deep over the wall in left.Seattle added a run in the eighth on a two-out single by Leonys Martin, a walk to Zunino and Ketel Martes RBI single.Steve Cishek (4-6) came on to stifle an Oakland threat in the seventh with an inning-ending double play and added a perfect eighth. Rookie Edwin Diaz notched his 18th save, despite allowing a run and three hits in the ninth.I need to control emotions, try to make pitches and try to help the team win, to give us a chance to make the playoffs said Diaz, who had blown two of his three previous save opportunities. We are so close right now.The Mariners took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on three consecutive singles before running themselves out of the inning. Kyle Seager reached on an infield single when Kendall Graveman couldnt find the handlee on his two-out dribbler along the first-base line.dddddddddddd Adam Lind followed with a single to center. Martin singled through the right side, scoring Seager from second. Martin continued for second, but was caught in a rundown. Lind was thrown out at home trying to score on the play.Chad Pinder brought Oakland even in the sixth with his first career home run, a leadoff shot to left for the only run off starter Ariel Miranda.Oakland had runners on first and third with one out in the seventh, but failed to score. Danny Valencia singled to open, but was forced at second on Brett Eibners fielders choice groundout to short. Yonder Alonso then singled Eibner to third. Cishek relieved and enticed pinch-hitter Max Muncy into an ending double play grounder.It came down to situational at-bats, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. We had runners at third with less than two outs, then we hit into a double play and two strikeouts . Our situational at-bats hurt us tonight.GOOD MONTH FOR MIRANDAAlthough he did not get the decision, Miranda allowed just one run on four hits in 5 1/3 innings, striking out six. Miranda, acquired from Baltimore on July 31 in exchange for LHP Wade Miley, is 4-1 with a 2.62 ERA in six September starts. Over his last four starts, Miranda has held opposing batters hitless in eight consecutive at-bats with runners in scoring position.UP NEXT:As: RHP Raul Alcantara (1-2, 5.75 ERA) makes his fifth career start since being called up from Triple-A Nashville on Sept. 5. He faced Seattle on Sept. 11, giving up two runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings without a decision.Mariners: RHP Taijaun Walkers (7-11, 4.35 ERA) up-and-down season seems to be back on the upswing. Walker was 2-0 with 1.44 in four April starts, then went 0-5 in May and eventually was sent to Triple-A. Hes 3-1 in his last four starts.
