Game Thread #79: A's at Marlins

Good afternoon and welcome to Miami, Florida! We'll get a look at the ballpark in Miami, and its gorgeous decor, especially in center field, as the A's visit the ballpark for the first time. As...

Game #77: Former A's Destroy Current A's

Moving right along...nothing to see here.

Game Thread #77: A's at Mets (3)

Move along, nothing good to see here. It's 8-1, the A's have given up four home runs and counting, and Scott Kazmir has exited early in favor of Jim Johnson, and not in the good...

Game Thread #77: A's at Mets (2)

Well, things went swimmingly for the A's in the first as a Moss single and a Cespedes double brought in the first run of the game and gave the A's a 1-0 lead, but thing went south in a hurry in the...

And we've surpassed $7,000 for the Alameda County Community Food Bank; you can still donate here. Good afternoon and welcome to another amazing day of A's baseball! As you can see, the A's have...

Game #74: Bullpen Spectacular; A's Steal A Win

338

This one was amazing! A true toss-up from start to finish, the A's pulled out the win despite a multitude of obstacles. Johnson, Cook, Abad and Doolittle pitch 5 scoreless frames to pick up Brad...

Game Thread #74: A's vs. Red Sox (4)

Well, Mills did indeed pitch just 4 innings, and Jim Johnson and Ryan Cook both pitched a scoreless inning. One was drama-free; I'll let you guess which one. We're still tied at 3; going to the...

Game Thread #74: A's vs. Red Sox (3)

We're going to the bottom of the fourth inning. The Red Sox, thanks to gifts of walks and a really big error, have erased the A's lead, and we're all tied up at 3. Mills may or may not pitch into...

It's been action-packed so far and it's just the bottom of the second inning. Josh Donaldson hit a 3-run home run to put the A's up 3-0, but an error by Punto led to two Boston runs. BUT an amazing...

Welcome to Athletics Nation and a perfect summer Friday night. I'd like to start by issuing a formal welcome to Brad Mills. You can read all about him and who went where to get him here. I would...

Game #70: A's TeAse, But Can't Overcome Pitching

61

The A's scored eight runs tonight on fifteen hits, thankfully at least one from each starting member of the lineup. Unfortunately, that would have been only good enough to tie the game had the...

Game Thread #70: A's vs. Rangers (4)

476

Well, the A's have scored a lot of runs, but they also gave up three more key runs to the Rangers (see: Cook, Ryan) and instead of a 8-7 game, the game is 11-7. But 11-7 is better than 11-3, so...

Bad, bad things have happened. It's now 8-2. The A's should score a lot of runs to get back into this one. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

The A's scored 2 in the first, but Texas matched them in the second. We're going to the bottom of the third, 2-2. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Of course it must be said: Way to go, USA! Good evening and welcome to another exciting night of A's baseball. I, baseballgirl, will be your surprise Monday night host, and it should be a great...

Game #69: A's Wallop Yankees to Win Series

160

Backed by a multi-hit game from Crisp, Gentry, Cespedes, Norris and Blanks, the A's steamrolled the Yankees to take the series with the final score of 10-5. Jesse Chavez was brilliant in his six...

Well, the Yankees are on the board, as they finally broke through against Jesse Chavez in the top of the sixth, and scored a single run. Somehow no one is worried; the A's scored another 4 runs and...

We're going to the bottom of the fourth inning; Jesse Chavez is dealing, and the A's have backed him up with a pair of 3-run home runs; one by Derek "I love parental holidays" Norris, and the other...

Game #66: A's Finally Break Out, Beat Angels 7-1

272

Finally, after waiting all series for just one hit, that will score just one run, that will beat the Angels, that will break the A's out of the collective hitting funk they have fallen into ever...

After some Houdini work, the A's escaped the eighth inning still leading 4-1. We're going to the ninth; LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Game Thread #66: A's at Angels (3)

Well, the Angels tied it up, but the A's took the lead, thanks to more heroics by Cespedes and a home run by Vogt! Also, Cespedes threw out another runner, this time at third. You think they'd...

The A's have a lead! It's one run, it's in the fourth, but they are winning 1-0! It's the little things. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Well, it's been a tough week for the green and gold, and it doesn't get easier in today's game. The A's, backed by Tommy Milone, will try avoid the sweep by beating Jered Weaver for a second time...
