Oakland over Seattle 2 games to 1

Game 1:
Oakland: 2  Seattle: 0
WP- McCatty (1-0)  LP - Abbott (0-1)

Steve McCatty gets the CG shutout victory, scattering just 3 hits and walking 3.
Dwayne Murphy went 3 for 4, and Rickey Henderson 2 for 4 with 2 doubles.

Game 2:
Seattle: 7  Oakland: 3
WP- Parrott (1-1)  LP - Lysander (0-2)  S - Rawley (1)

Dan Meyer filled up the stat sheet for the M's, going 3 for 5 including a first inning 2-run homer.
Seattle pounded out 16 hits in all. Besides Meyer, Rod Craig, Joe Simpson, Bill Stein, and Larry Cox also had multi-hit games.
Mike Parrott got his first W and Shane Rawley looked strong in getting his first save.

Game 3:
Oakland: 3  Seattle: 0
WP - Keough (2-0)  LP - Beattie (1-1) 

Another dominating performance from an A's starter.  This time it was Matt Keough going the distance for the second time in his two starts.  Keough walked no one and only gave up 2 hits. His first shutout lowers his ERA on the year to a tidy 0.50.
The game was a great pitchers' duel between Keough and Jim Beattie, as there was no score until the bottom of the 7th when Tony Armas sent a fastball deep over the left-field fence for a 2-run homer that gave the A's a lead they would not relinquish.
