Mariners Sweep A's

The defending champs Seattle Mariners won their seventh straight post season series with a convincing 4 games to 0 zero sweep over the Oakland Athletics.  A recap of the series:

Seattle 6, Oakland 1 - Felix Hernandez pitched 8+ innings of 4-hit ball and Ryan Braun hit a pinch hit homer in the top of the 7th.

Seattle 5, Oakland 1 - Justin Verlander pitched 6 strong innings and Evan Longoria drove in 3 runs with 2 homeruns

Seattle 8, Oakland 5 - Jon Lester gets the win, Jed Lowrie hits homer and drives in 3 runs

Seattle 7, Oakland 6 - Jed Lowrie hits another homer, King Felix picks up another win; Oakland's rally in the 9th falls just short as they score two in the 9th to make the score close
