Never have I been so happy to move on from one series to the next. The A's fly to the Pacific Northwest to battle with the upstart Seattle Mariners, in the city with no basketball team
Friday May 10th: Dan Straily (1-0 5.94 ERA) vs Hishashi Iwakuma (3-1 1.61 ERA)
Saturday May 11th: Jarrod Parker (1-5 7.34 ERA) vs Brandon Maurer (2-4 6.07 ERA)
Sunday May 12th: Tom Milone (3-4 3.13 ERA) vs Joe Saunders (2-4 6.15 ERA)
Based off last season success, the A's have the advantage in all three pitching matchups. In the current season's success, the A's have been an inconsistent ball club. Obviously the injuries have not helped the cause in any way. With Safeco bringing in the fences, look for La Potencia to show a big power display early and often in this series. He seems to favor Safeco based off last season's success against the Mariners, so lets hope he has a big series.
Short, sweet IGT. Wanted to try my hand at it for this series, because the prior series I did an IGT for, we got the big sweep in Anaheim. So let's ride this IGT to victory baby!! #BleedGreenAndGold #RideOrDie
