April 16, 1985 Game 84: Mariners (2-5) at A's (3-4)

It was an unusaul day at the Coliseum. I would be forced to watch what I consider to of the games more boring teams. This one would feature Mike Moore vs Jose Rijo.

In the 2nd the Mariners would open the scoring Rijo would walk Phelps to lead off the inning and advance to 2nd as Griffin commits an error on a Presley groundball. Scott would single and Phelps would come around to score to make it 1-0. In the 8th Own would make it 2-0 with his 2nd Home Run of the season. In the 9th Thomas would make it 3-0 with his 1st Homer of the season.

Pitching was the real story of this game. Moore would toss a 6 hit shutout while walking 1 and striking out 5. Jose Rijo would wow the hometown crowd as his fastball was electric as he was able to rack up the strikeouts. he would strikeout 6 in a row at one point and would finish the game with 13.

The Final Score 3-0 Mariners
