#1 Jeremiah, after the Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera hit home run 502 on Wednesday night the Tigers sat Cabrera and the A’s took advantage getting right to work on the Bengals with a quick 8-0 lead after four innings Tigers starter Matt Manning was charged for all eight runs.
#2 The A’s grabbed four quick runs in the top of the first inning after Jed Lowrie launched a 411 foot homer into left center for a 3-0 lead. The A’s Mark Canha followed up with a 370 foot solo home run homer into the right field stands for a 4-0 lead.
#3 In the second inning Starling Marte slugged an RBI double to get the A’s up 5-0. Marte now has 117 hits and 41 RBIs.
#4 A’s starter Frankie Montas was pitching in the bottom of the seventh inning when he was lifted for reliever Deolis Guerra. Montas had given up only one run until he gave up a home run to Harold Castro and Akil Baddoo hit a two run homer for 353 feet. Guerra watched the bottom fall out for a five run seventh and was relieved by Andrew Chafin.
