A Loss To the Oakland Baseball Family: Bob Welch

20

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to the A's 1990 Cy Young winner and member of the A's baseball family, as Bob Welch died Monday evening.

Game #63: A's Beat O's 11-1; Machado Angry Toddler

The A's blow out the Orioles in the final game to win the series and their thirty-ninth game of the season, but no one will remember the game, the win, the starting pitcher, or anything else about...

We're heading to the eighth inning; the A's hold a commanding 10-0 lead thanks to a lot of walks and John Jaso. Scott Kazmir pitched 7 scoreless, so here we are!

We're in the top of the fourth, the A's unloaded on Jimenez for six runs, capped off by a grand slam by Brandon Moss. The A's added another in the fourth, and it's 7-0!

Game #59: Cespedes, Donaldson lead comeback charge

There's nothing like being the marquee match-up of the day for ESPN Wednesday Night Baseball in New York and falling behind four runs early. This might faze a lesser team, but the A's responded by...

Donaldson's home run has given the A's a 5-4 lead, and thanks to Otero, the A's are holding on to the lead. We're heading to the ninth inning, 5-4 A's. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Well, believe it or not, after being down 4-0 early, the A's have tied the game, and should have taken the lead. But the Yankees also should have more runs on Chavez, who did make it through the...

A great Gentry play to open the game saved Jesse Chavez in the first inning, but the Yankees broke it way open in the third as Chavez just doesn't look all that sharp anymore. It's 4-0 Yankees, and...

The Oakland Athletics have turned into media darlings, seemingly overnight, as they are basking in their early success to the season, that as we all seem to know instinctively, could have been even...

Game #53: Walk It Off! Donaldson saves Kazmir, A's

Oh boy! You guys! Just when all hope seemed lost for our heroes, the very best thing happened in the bottom of the ninth! There were hits, and a HIT, and pie, and did I mention they magically...

The A's now have two hits, but they just can't do anything against Anibal Sanchez, who is threatening to pitch a complete game shutout. Scott Kazmir has been almost as good, but the one home run he...

We're going to the bottom of the fourth inning. Torii Hunter (who else) has hit a home run off Kazmir to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead. The A's have managed zip, zero, zilch against Sanchez so far....

Good evening, and welcome to another exciting game of A's baseball! None of us got our money's worth in last night's game, but the great thing about baseball is that there is usually a game the...

Game #52: A's Hit Tigers' Ace, But Lose To Bullpen

The pitching duel that was anything but went the Tigers' way today as Sonny Gray and Max Scherzer both went six innings, with Gray giving up 4 earned runs, and Scherzer 5. But the A's bullpen would...

Game #52: Bullpen Mental Error Leads to 6-5 Loss

On a day when the A's actually got to Max Scherzer, the Tigers got to Sonny Gray as well. The game was even until the A's blinked first, and allowed Rajai Davis to steal third base without anyone...

Well, we almost hung onto the lead, but Otero gave up the long ball in the seventh. Good thing it was just a solo, which tied the game at 5. Both pitchers will end up with no-decisions. It's 5-5...

It's still not a pitcher's duel, but it's sure entertaining, as John Jaso, battered and bruised arm and all, homered to turn the A's 4-3 deficit into a 5-4 lead. Sonny Gray held the lead through...

Well, it's been a lot of things, but pitchers' duel, 'tis not. After Gray put the A's offense in a 2-0 hole before they ever took their turn at bat, the A's offense battled back to tie the game off...

Game #47: A's Magic Runs Out; Rays Win in 11

In what was an exciting, thrilling, and ultimately wasted and sad baseball game, the A's drop the finale of the series in 11 innings on a 3-run home run as the A's went from one strike away from a...

BONUS BASEBALL!!!!!! On a getaway day when they are flying to Canada after the game, the A's are going to play on, and it's a GOOD thing. The A's tied the game at the eleventh hour, in the ninth...

Game #46: One hit's enough offense for red-hot A's

The A's win their 5th game in a row, and 11th out of 12 by stringing together a couple of walks, benefiting from an error, and hitting one solo home run to build a 3-0 lead that Tommy Milone,...

The box score is NOT a typo. The A's have won their 5th in a row with the nail-biting score of 3-2 at the same time they were one-hit. I'll be back with all of your highlights, most of them...
