Oakland Athletics at Mariners: Aug. 11, 2010 game thread

100811-141034.jpg
Just two hits by the M’s as we head to the bottom of the sixth, Oakland leading 4-0 after scoring a pair in the fifth. Mark Ellis, trying to win one for Wak, doubled home a pair of runs off Luke French.
New manager, same old offense. Hey, at least the M’s went 5-4 on the homestand. Yeah, the bottom of the sixth just whizzed by in the time it took to type two paragraphs.


1:38 p.m.: Oakland leads 2-0 as we head to the fifth. The A’s scored a run in the fourth off Luke French as Rajai Davis hit a one-out double to left, then came charging home on a single by Landon Powell. Just one hit by the M’s through four innings — an infield single by Franklin Gutierrez.
1:14 p.m.: Seattle trails 1-0 as we head to the third inning. Matt Tuiasosopo took a really strange route to a ball hit to the gap and it fell in for a Mark Ellis double to start the second. Tui would have been cut had he been a wideout. Ellis later stole third (really trying to win one for Wak, isn’t he?) then scored on a single to left by Coco Crisp.
Casey Kotchman hit into a double play to end the second. Jose Lopez did the same thing in the first. Consistency. A hallmark of success. Usually.
12:40 p.m.: Final game of the homestand for the Mariners starts off with Franklin Gutierrez making a great running catch in center and then crashing into the wall. Gutierrez appears to be OK. The M’s are 5-3 for the homestand, their first winning one since, uh, back in June I think.
