ON THE MOUND
Brandon put up a decent last outing of the season, though too. too many pitches (103) . . .
5.1 innings ~ SIX hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ FIVE strikeouts
} Chance, on the other hand, left nothing to it – giving up TWO home runs (one a 2-run shot) in the 7th to allow the A’s to creep ever closer to the once large lead)
} Charlie, Lucas and Yoervis bent but didn’t break (combining to give up TWO hits and THREE walks but NO runs)
} Danny retired the A’s in order in the 9th for his SIXTEENTH save
AT THE PLATE
Power on display at The Safe!
~ Justin gave the M’s their first lead of the game with a TWO run homer in the 2nd
~ Brad extended the lead with a solo shot in the 3rd
~ Brad, as is his habit, hit a SECOND homer ~ this one a GRAND SLAM! ~ to break it open in the 5th
IN THE FIELD
* No DP’s (and the A’s pulled off a double steal on Zunino/Medina)
* Justin made a nice catch of a pop-up (over the camera well) to end the 7th
