9/27 game thread: Mariners vs. Athletics

2:57 p.m.: RRS leaves the game after pitching 113 pitches — 72 strikes — allowing three runs on nine hits. Sean Green gets the last out of the inning, preserving Rowland-Smith’s quality-start streak, which is now at eight games.
2:34 p.m. The Mariners have just one hit in their last 12 at-bats, and Betancourt is the only man to reach base in that period. Meanwhile, RRS is taking the mound with 89 pitches through five.
1:50 p.m.: Yuniesky Betancourt draws his 17th walk of the season — which ties a career high — but then he goes and gets caught daydreaming off first base. M’s lead 6-1.
1:34 p.m. Wladimir Balentien (2-run single) and Kenji Johjima (3-run home run) have put the Mariners ahead 6-0. That’s the highest-scoring first inning for the M’s since July 30, 2003.
