      Sasaki comes in the top of the ninth with the Mariners leading the Colorado Rockies
      at Safeco Field 4-1.

      Brent Mayne: Goes 0-1 and grounds to second, over to first for the out.
      Nelfi Perez: Goes 0-2 and grounds to second. over to first for the out.
      Bubba Carpenter: (had fanned in the previous three plate appearances tonight) Goes
      3-1 and pops it up to Olerud. Sasaki gets his ninth save.

      Then Sasaki comes in the bottom of the ninth against the Giants earlier today. I didn't
      hear the game, but here is the play by play from MLB's site:

      San Francisco 9th
      Kazuhiro Sasaki pitching:
      -- Barry Bonds:
      Ball, Strike swinging, Ball, Bonds doubled to right.
      -- Jeff Kent:
      Ball, Foul, Strike looking, Foul, Ball, Kent reached on an infield single, Bonds to third.
      -- J.T. Snow:
      Ball, Ball, Ball, Strike looking, Strike looking, Snow hit sacrifice fly to right, Bonds scored.
      -- Ellis Burks:
      Strike swinging, Strike swinging, Ball, Foul, Burks struck out looking.
      Felipe Crespo hit for Rich Aurilia.
      -- Felipe Crespo:
      Strike looking, Strike swinging, Crespo grounded out to second.
      End of Inning (1 Run, 2 Hits, 0 Errors).

      Mariners win 5-2. (no save opportunity here, since the Mariners were leading by four
      runs).
