On the A’s podcast with Jerry: On Wednesday A’s pitcher Jahrel Cotton did not have his best game as an A’s starter he gave up five runs and eight hits Wednesday. Cotton who gave up three runs in the second inning the LA Angels got a couple bloop hits. one bloop double right down the left field line that drove in two runs. The Angels weren’t knocking the cover off the ball but they did get five runs and the shutout to beat the A’s.

Cotton struck out the Angels Mike Trout the first two times he faced him, Cotton didn’t pitch poorly but it didn’t go his way on Wednesday night. The A’s didn’t have any offense Garrett Richrads who started the game pitched shutout ball until he had to leave and hadn’t pitched since May of last year. He avoided Tommy John surgery and went for the plasma treatment but his arm cramped up and he couldn’t finish the ball game. Richards pitched very well until he had to be lifted in the fifth inning when he started having cramps in his arm.
