Open Thread: Game 9 - Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners (cont'd)

New, comments


Well, it's been some classic Oakland A's baseball so far through 7 innings. The lineup is making an average pitcher look like a Cy Young winner, the night after making a Cy Young winner look like an average pitcher. Meanwhile, the short hops all seem to be landing Seattle's way. With some help from the home plate umpire, the Mariners are sitting on a 4-0 lead with no signs of letting up.

Oakland has mustered only 3 singles and a walk, while Milone's smoke and mirrors only worked for the first 5 innings. We enter the 8th inning with 6 outs to score 4 runs. I just asked Las Vegas, and the odds are not in our favor. Rally time!
