It’s been said many a time you got to the park and you see something different everyday and Saturday wasn’t any exception as the Oakland A’s who called up three rookies from Triple A Nashville saw what they hope they might the next “Big Three” but time will tell but rookies Franklin Barreto, Matt Olsen, and Jaycob Brugman all hit their first big league homer of their careers to help pace the A’s to a 10-2 victory at Cellular One Field against the struggling Chicago White Sox. It was the first time three rookies hit for their first big league homers since the 1914 Kansas City Packers of the Federal League.

Even starting pitcher Daniel Gossett (1-2) picked up his first career win as Gossett was riding on the cusp of a 6-0 lead and wound up giving up two unearned runs in six innings of work. White Sox manager Rick Renteria was tossed out for his second straight game when he fired down his cap after a review play ruled a runner safe this happening after Sox third baseman Todd Frazier was tossed for verbally expressing his displeasure of the review. Frazier said with all the technology we have today it’s crazy that someone with all those TV monitors can’t make the right call.
