April 17, 1985 Game 95: Mariners (3-5) at Athletics (3-5)
Mariners and A's split the first 2 games of this series. The A's
offense is struggling as is the Mariners pitching so this should make
for an interesting game. It would be Matt Young vs Don Sutton.
Mariners get on the board early as Perconte leads off the game with a
walk, Bradley singles and Perconte holds at 2nd, Henderson singles and
that scores Perconte and Bradley holds at 3rd. Cowens singles and that
scores Bradley and it is 2-0 Mariners.
in the 5th the Mariners
would add to their lead as Perconte doubles and then Phelps hits a
Sutton slider for a 2 run homer to make it 4-0 Mariners.
would finally get on the board in the 8th as Young would walk Murphy
with 2- outs, Kingman doubles and Baker follows that with a single that
score both Murphy and Kingman. A heath single sends Baker to 3rd and
Davis doubles to score Baker the score is 4-3 Mariners. Nunez works the
9th without incident to earn his first save
The Final Score 4-3 Mariners
