On the A’s podcast with Jerry F:
#1 The performance of Oakland A’s (29-22) starter James Kaprielian going seven innings of shutout ball against the Seattle Mariners (23-27) in a 6-3 win for the A’s.
#2 Kaprielian over the seven innings he pitched gave up only two hits and had all his pitches working for him.
#3 The Seattle Mariners as a team have been struggling at the plate and have been no hit twice this season thus far.
#4 Jerry, talk about the A’s next opponent the Los Angeles Angels (22-27) are coming to the Coliseum on Thursday night for four games. For a team that is five games below .500 and have struggled you can never count the Angels out.
#5 The Angels for game one of the series will start their ace Shohei Ohtani (1-0 ERA 2.37) who fast ball was clocked five MPH less than normal against Cleveland but held Cleveland to two runs over 4.2 innings. Ohtani will be matched up against the Oakland A’s starter Chris Bassitt (4-2 ERA 3.69)
