First game of a twi-light double header. This one was a blow out. 11-4 read the final and it probably could have been worse. Down 7-4 after 7, Aker came on and gave up 4 runs to put it firmly out of reach. Jack hasn't gotten anyone out all season. Two errors did not help our cause either. Tommy Harper went 3 for 3 with 2 Ribbies as he raised his avg to .307. Hegan got 1 hit and his avg dropped to .339.
The second game of the twin bill was a must for Seattle. Losing this one would have meant gettin swept in 4 games by the A's. Brandon started and gave the team 7 solid innings of 5 hit 1 run ball. In fact both teams scored 1 in the 1st and posted goose eggs all the way through. One Jim Bouton cam on and threw a scoreless 8th to notch the win as the Pilots scored 2 in the 9th and Segui cam on for the save. The 8th inning wasn't pretty as Bouton hit Blue Moon Odom, Oakland's pitcher, to start things off. With 2 outs Reggie walked and the Bulldog snuck a 84 mph fastball by Sal Bando to keep the game in check. Seattle scrapped to score 2 in the 9th after Harper led off with a walk and promptly stole 2nd. Odom paid too much attention to Harper and wound up walking Hegan. Comer laid down a beautiful bunt to make it 2nd and 3rd with only one out. Old reliable, Tommy Davis singled to center to score Harper and Mincher singled to right to score Hegan. The win ended a 3 game losing steak.
