Mariners @ A's - Game 7 Mariners 1 Oakland 0

What a game. I pretty much only have ONE thing to say -- ERIK BEDARD!! WOW! What a gem he threw. Games like this one from Erik make me once again remember why the Mariners gave up so much to get him. If he stays healthy this year, watch out. The guy has nasty stuff and everything is working for him right now. Who cares if he is a quiet and shy Canadian kid who would rather fish than talk with the media. He isn't here to talk he is here to pitch. If he continues to pitch like this I could care less if he ever says another word.

8.1 innings, 3 hits, 0 earned runs, 1 BB and 7 K's.

All the offense Erik needed in this one was off the bat of Mike Sweeney in the 7th inning. An timely RBI double put the Mariners on top and that was that. Let's not forget about Oakland starter Trevor Cahill. He had a no hitter going into the 7th inning and ended up giving up only the 1 earned run on 3 hits. This was a great pitching battle, I am just happy the Mariners won this one!!
