In the past FIVE games the M’s have scored 21 runs but, have also been shut out TWICE
ON the MOUND
Despite the low run total, seemed like Felix was in trouble ALL day long . . .
The A’s only had ONE extra-base hit against Felix (and TWO walks) but, he was continually pitching OUT of a jamb. Runners on in every inning but the 3rd. Speaks to his kingly grit that they were only able to score upon him TWICE, once in the 1st and once in the 7th. But, Felix takes his first loss in Oakland since September 2008
SEVEN innings ~ TEN hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ SIX strikeouts
} David Rollins (rule 5 draft player) just activated from suspension made his major league debut count: 1-2-3 8th inning (strikeout, fly out, pop-up)
AT the PLATE
Only SIX total hits and only ONE for extra-bases (AJ’s double in the 1st) and, obviously, ZERO RBI/runs scored 😦
IN the FIELD
* Nice play in the 1st to get Vogt at the plate, no DP’s (but ONE turned against them)
* Considering the A’s have the most errors in the majors, sure seemed like they save a LOT of runs w/their defense today
