Athletics Vs. Mariners Final Score: Bartolo Colon Leads Oakland To 4-0 Win

The Oakland Athletics visited the Seattle Mariners on Friday night, looking to get some revenge for dropped three of four games in the season-opening series between the two teams. The A's did indeed get their revenge as they defeated Seattle's ace Felix Hernandez and spoiled the Mariners' home opener at Safeco Field, picking up a 4-0 win.

Oakland starter Bartolo Colon was exceptional, giving up just three hits and one walk through seven innings, while striking out five. He combined with Ryan Cook and Grant Balfour for the shutout.

The A's opened the scoring in the top of the third inning, when Cliff Pennington doubled in Daric Barton for the first run. Two batters later, Coco Crisp drove in Pennington with a single.

Oakland added their third run on an eighth-inning Kurt Suzuki sacrifice fly that scored Josh Reddick. Jemile Weeks added the explanation point in the top of the ninth with a solo home run into the left field bullpen.

The only member of the starting lineup to go hitless for Oakland was Yoenis Cespedes, who went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
