Good news: Ramón Laureano can no longer torment the Angels from center field. Bad news: Starling Marte, defensive whiz, is now there.
A’s Lineup: Canha 7, Marte 8, Olson 3, Lowrie 4, Laureano 9, Moreland DH, Chapman 5, Murphy 2, Andrus 6. Montas 1.
Angels Lineup: Fletcher 4, Ohtani DH, Gosselin 3, Upton 7, Stassi 2, Marsh 8, Iglesias 6, Eaton 9, Mayfield 5. Bundy 1.
Game was over in the 1st inning
Indeed it was.
what are we now? 51-51?
Add 30 to each side and that’s where the team will end up. Actually a great accomplishment considering.
Later all. Our boys are winning the next 3!
5-run ninth, here we go.
Okay, well maybe a 4-run ninth.
Well, maybe we can get a hit this inning.
What is this “hit” you speak of?
Shohei represents the winning run
One hit ninth?
crikey. We 4 hit them and we’re down by 4 runs.
Three walks in 1st alone.
Good they are going to use Trivino tonight run up the pitch count
Not a fan of Canha.
I feel your sigh. This Angel team is not good. Healthy they may be different. As it is .500 is quite an accomplishment.
So this team cannot beat the A’s worst pitcher.
to be fair, Montas has potential to be an ace. A testament to how good Oaklands pitching is
Could not score a run against the A’s worst pitcher.
Montas is not their worst.
Irvin is worse. Maybe Manea as well…
15 hrs or so for Perry to do anything.
Too late now.
Marsh represents the go ahead run now…he said optimistically.
Angels cannot hit legit pitching. This will be a sweep. Or something close like 1-3
A’s take three at least…
The difference between good teams and bad teams. Good teams win games even when they’re not swinging the bat great by not beating themselves with walks and errors.
No defense against a walk…
Can’t hit the ball much harder than Fletcher did there.
Let’s get the kid a W c’mon fletch
Joe has a brand new toy to destroy
Shohei came into this game hitting .286 since the all-star break. So that’s good. That day off helped!
