Mariners 3 | Athletics 4

And the Athletics finish SECOND in the AL West by earning their FIRST ever FOUR-game sweep of the M’s in Seattle.

Ryan looked a bit better…
Hopefully something to build on over the winter – he threw SEVENTY-THREE pitches in FIVE innings giving up TWO earned runs (maybe taken out before the SIXTH after the M’s tied it up to ensure he wouldn’t take the loss?)

The bullpen was just so-so…
 giving up another couple of runs over the last FOUR innings

The bats had lots of hits…
But only one for extra bases (Ichiro’s TWO-run double in the FIFTH)
Nice to see Justin finish on a good note – his RBI single in the EIGHTH gave him a career high TEN-game hitting streak to end the season.

Some photos of the last day and retrospective of the season coming soon…
