Athletics 5, Mariners 1: Seattle fails to complete series sweep

The Mariners scored 10 runs the final five games of this homestand, but still managed to win three of them, so that has to count for something. Very spirited and energetic crowd of 31,560 fans today, which included the usual assortment of matinee kids groups cheering and dancing in the aisles.
They were cheering “I-chi-ro!” in the ninth like it was a tie game. I’m sure they enjoyed the hydro races, too.
In the end, though, the M’s hit into three double plays, managed only four hits all day off Dallas Braden and squandered their last real chance when scoring just once in a bases-loaded, one-out seventh. Chone Figgins saw his nine-game snapped.
Other than that, a good time was had by all.
Chalk up another good day, business-wise, for Howard Lincoln and Chuck Armstrong.
