EPIC FAIL

Final Score: Mariners 8, A's 7 (15)

I don't even know what to say. The A's couldn't hold a one-run lead in the 9th (4-3, Springer) and then couldn't hold a three-run lead in the 13th (7-4, Gio Gonzalez). Then in the 15th, Dana Eveland comes in and gives up a hit, throws a bunt away, and gives up a high, shallow fly ball - with the outfield in, mind you - that Rajai Davis somehow can't get to.

You know what? If you aren't a fan of either team, this seems like a great game with all its twists and turns. As an A's fan, I can't really write anything right now that won't sound bitter or cynical, so I'll just let you guys talk.
