A’s lose 4-5 to Mariners

The Mariners didn’t do much aside from a five-run second inning, but it turned out to be just enough. Rookie pitcher Brett Anderson, pitched very well in his Major-League debut, but he takes the loss as he accounted for all five runs. Aside from the second inning, Anderson (0-1)looked sharp as he went six, allowing five runs on seven hits( four hits in second), while striking out two and walking two.

The Mariners bullpen did it’s job when it counted, escaping several bases-loaded jams.

The A’s had more than enough chances to score but failed to convert. The ball wasn’t carrying tonight as many balls were hit for what seemed to be home runs but fell short.

You had to love Mark Ellis’ grab in the ninth! Web-Gem for sure.

A’s will get em’ tomorrow

    Hey, youz guyz…. did you quit? Haven’t seen any news/commentary in more than a week.

    S’OK — that’s your business, but is there a reason I should make this site a standard bookmark?
