The Oakland Athletics got back to winning on Friday night, beating Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners, 6-1. They look to keep things rolling on Saturday with unbeaten Brett Anderson (3-0, 0.90 ERA) on the mound.
Anderson has looked phenomenal since returning from Tommy John surgery, giving up only two runs in 20 total innings across his three starts. That's been crucial for an Oakland pitching staff dealing with Bartolo Colon's 50-game suspension and will continue to be crucial with Brandon McCarthy now missing an undetermined amount of time after his horrific accident.
Seattle will counter with Hisashi Iwakuma (6-3, 3.14 ERA), who is 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA over his last four starts. Oakland last saw Iwakuma out of Seattle's bullpen when he gave up one run over 3 2/3 innings in a 2-1 Oakland win.
