Again there was only one game on the ticket today and again it was Oakland and Seattle in Tokyo. Bartolo Colon pitched like he usually does against the Mariners, going 8 strong innings and only giving up 1 run. The only mistake he made all day was to Justin Smoak, who put one in the seats. Vargas pitched pretty well but ran into trouble in the 7th and when Shaun Kelley gave up the home run to Cespedes that was the winning margin. Insurance home runs by Josh Reddick and Johnny Gomes provided the winning margin.
I was right in my prediction that Colon would pitch the Mariners tough.
We don't have another regular season game for a week so until that happens we will continue with the previews/predictions.
