2wRich Hill disappointed in his first start with the A's on Opening Day. Saturday was a fresh start and he delivered for Oakland in Seattle.
2wThe A's offense broke out with big performances from key players vs. the Mariners, including two hits and two steals from Coco Crisp.
2wBilly Butler came into this season looking to prove himself with the A's. He'll have to do so more against lefties than right-handed pitchers.
2wAfter batting leadoff the last three games, Billy Burns is out of the lineup and Coco Crisp is in his place, while Friday's hero is batting second.

2wThe A's and Mariners were all tied up through eight, until Chris Coghlan jacked one to deep right to lift Oakland to a victory in Seattle on Friday...
