On the A’s podcast with Charlie O:

One of the reasons why the Oakland A’s had a hard team hitting against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday was it was too much Red Sox pitcher Nick Pivetta who pitched seven innings, two hits and seven strikeouts of shutout ball.

The A’s side of things they just simply aren’t hitting. They lost on Friday night to the Sox to open the three game series 7-2 and dropped Saturday’s affair 8-0. For A’s starter Paul Blackburn lost his second straight game and was touched up for four earned runs and seven hits in four innings.

The A’s could only muster four hits and with Pivetta pitching like he did it would be hard for a good hitting team. The A’s have been struggling to get hits and it’s adding to their loss column when the can’t score runs and finish games.
