On the A’s podcast with Jerry F:
#1 A’s take their first loss in two weeks after winning 10 straight games in two weeks. An impressive performance during those two weeks.
#2 Talk about some the stars during the streak will start with Mark Canha and all those home runs — some gamers.
#3 Talk about Stephen Piscotty. He’s been struggling at the plate the last two months. Piscotty is hitting .274, but he’s got a consistent on base percentage. Piscotty, who got on base in the fourth inninng Tuesday night, has now got on base 24 times.
#4 Fernando Rodney was designated for assignment last week. No team would pick up his $5.25 million salary. He had an ERA of 9.42.
#5 The Los Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani was instrumental in the Angels’ win on Tuesday night getting a lined two RBI single to help the Angels get a two-run win over the A’s 6-4.
