    mariners 8The fired-up Oakland Athletics came out swinging, and Chris Young's day was short-lived. Newcomer Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer as Oakland jumped to a five-run lead in the first, and Young failed to make it out of the inning as Seattle lost 6-1 to the Athletics on Monday. "I wasn't sharp. My stuff wasn't good, it was flat," Young said. "They came out super-aggressive, you could see it.

Apple Begins Taking Pre-Orders for iPhone 5C

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_92e0991e04.jpgApple (NEW YORK) -- Apple began taking pre-orders for its new iPhone 5C on its website Friday.  The orders began to be processed at 3:01 a.m. ET/12:01 a.m. PT. Other retailers, including Walmart and Best Buy, also began to take orders on the new phone, which starts at $99 with a two-year contract. 

Walmart actually has the lowest price on the phone; the 16GB model starts at $79 with a two-year contract.

The phone will be delivered on Sept. 20 to those who pre-order it on Friday and will be in stores that same day as well.  The iPhone 5S, the higher-end model of the iPhone that Apple announced this week, won't be available for order until Sept. 20, the same day it will also be available in stores.

The iPhone 5C comes in five colors -- white, pink, yellow, blue and green -- all of which match the wallpaper on the new iOS 7 software that will come pre-loaded on the phone.  Unlike the $199 iPhone 5S, the 5C has similar specs to the iPhone 5, which it will replace.  It has the same processor, camera and 4-inch Retina Display as the iPhone 5.

If you aren't in the market for a new iPhone though, on Wednesday, Sept. 18, Apple will update the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 with its latest software -- iOS 7.  iOS 7 has a starkly different design than the previous versions of the software, with a new colorful look, icons and apps.

In other words, even if you don't get the iPhone 5C, you can still get a pretty colorful phone come next week.
