I heard the announcers mention that the A’s were 13-3 vs. the ALW coming into this game, so I checked out the break down . . .
odd that they haven’t played TEX yet
ON THE MOUND
Kuma allowed a lead-off single to John Jaso (Jinglehiemerschmidt) and then retired 16 in-a-row then, a couple of singles and a double gave the A’s their first two runs of the game in the 6th
SEVEN innings ~ FOUR hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ NINE strikeouts
} Ollie gave up a lead-off homer in the 8th and then struck out the side
} Tommy (Mr. 0h fer 26 vs. right-handers) closes down the bar one-two-three
AT THE PLATE
3-4-5-6 hitters with the bulk of the production tonight . . .
~ FIVE hits, ONE walk, THREE runs and all SIX rbi (Rauuuuuuul with a THREE-run homer)
~ All THREE walks (Kyle 2, Justin 1) came around to score
IN THE FIELD
*Brendan muffed a gb in the 6th (originally ruled an error, later changed to a hit) to give the Athletics their first base runner since Jaso’s lead-off single in the 1st
*Kyle with his first SB!
tweets of the game . . .
this was a couple days ago but, highlights the CRAZY May schedule (where the M’s play exactly THREE home games between May 1-24)
