On the A’s podcast with Jeremiah:
#1 Oakland A’s starter Frankie Montas pitched masterfully again but the A’s offense once again could not carry the game to the finish line with a win. Montas did his part throwing for seven innings, three hits, two walks and 11 strikeouts.
#2 Montas pitching leaves little doubt that the A’s will shop him to get some future prospects but when that will happen is up to team vice president Billy Beane and general manager David Forst.
#3 The A’s of late have not only been getting great pitching from Montas but also starter Paul Blackburn who improved his record to 5-0 with a win over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.
#4 In the top of the ninth inning at the Coliseum the Rangers scored three runs breaking a 1-1 deadlock when Adolis Garcia hit an RBI double to score pinch runner Eli White, Nathanial Lowe came up next and hit a two run home run for the 4-1 win.
#5 The A’s will try it again against the Rangers at the Coliseum tonight at 6:40 PM PDT right hander Jon Gray (1-2, 5.14) and for Oakland left hander Cole Irvin (2-2, 2.94).
