Oakland Athletics at Mariners: Sept. 27, 2011 game thread

Blake Beavan looks like he packed it in for 2011 after his last outing. This one will go into the garbage bin when it’s done.
Beavan gave up a two-run rocket homer to left by Scott Sizemore in the top of the fifth, so it’s 7-0 for the A’s.


7:24 p.m.: Blake Beavan is rapidly establishing himself as a fixture in the back end of Seattle’s starting rotation. If the season began next week, he’d be in the rotation. Let’s see how well he mixes in his pitches tonight because he’s become more than just a pinpoint fastball guy lately.
Kyle Seager gets the start at second base tonight while Dustin Ackley moves to DH.
And Bleavan gets the Baker kiss of death, giving up a three-run homer to Josh Willingham in the very first inning. That came after he’d walked his first batter in four games. Guess I jinxed him.
