On the Oakland A’s podcast with Jerry Feitelberg:

#1 The A’s have won two games in this series with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. The Sox have to be sick of the A’s about now after getting no hit when they were out in Oakland and then the A’s come in and take the first two games of the series.

#2 The A’s got some great pitching out of starter Sean Manaea on Monday night and then on Tuesday night from starter Daniel Mengden.

#3 The A’s open a four-game series in Toronto starting tonight at Roger’s Centre. The A’s will be going with Jake Sanchez (3-2), who’ll open the series tonight.

#4 In the Sox series, Mark Canha, who was playing center on Tuesday, chased down a foul ball near the side wall in foul territory and made the catch. A fan took a swipe at the ball and hit the brim of Canha’s hat. Canha said the fan should have been thrown out of the game, but wasn’t.

#5 A’s outfielder Stephen Piscotty came back to play on Tuesday after taking a week off for bereavement following the death of his mother. Piscotty, with a heavy hat, hit a home run over that historical fence the Green Monster for his third home run of the year.
