photo from sfgate.com: Oakland Athletics Matt Olson (28) bumps elbows with Marcus Semien (10) after his two-run home run against the Texas Rangers in the third inning in a baseball game Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, in Arlington, Texas.
On the A’s podcast with Charlie O:
#1 After Khris Davis had his earlier season injury to the hip and struggled when he got back in the lineup, he’s found his swing and a perfect example was Sunday’s two home run game in Arlington to help the A’s pull off a win.
#2 A good team comes from behind and the A’s seem to get help from many different players every night: Matt Olson, Matt Chapman, Khris Davis, Sean Murphy, Robbie Grossman, Mike Fiers, Sean Manaea and many more.
#3 Will the A’s, who are in a dead heat first place tie in the wild card, be able to make this a race all the way to the end of the wire with Tampa Bay just to get to play one game in the postseason?
#4 The A’s pitching has combined a 5.95 ERA during their road swing in Houston and Texas. The A’s had allowed 17 home runs in seven games on the trip.
#5 The A’s Matt Chapman’s home run on Sunday helped Oakland surpass the A’s 1996 franchise record setting the all-time record at 244 home runs.
