On the A’s podcast with Jeremiah:
#1 Thursday night in Boston the Oakland A’s (22-43) picked up their second win to conclude their nine game road trip on Thursday night. The win marked the A’s second win in 15 games overall with a razor close 4-3 win over the Boston Red Sox (34-30).
#2 The A’s got help from starting pitcher Paul Blackburn who pitched into the sixth inning and got some run support from Christian Bethancourt who slugged a two run RBI single.
#3 The A’s also got some offensive help from Chad Pinder who got an RBI single. The A’s had a three run top of the third inning that gave them some insurance going forward in the contest.
#4 In a recent interview with A’s general manager David Forst, Forst said some of the reasons for the A’s struggles were coming from the ball park issues and what is happening on the field. The A’s had dealt some of their key players and basically Forst said the club shouldn’t be expected to win like they had in previous years.
#5 The A’s open a three game series Friday night against the Kansas City Royals at the Oakland Coliseum starting pitchers for the Royals no starter announced yet the A’s will go with Frankie Montas (3-6 ERA 3.40) a 6:40 pm PDT first pitch at the Coliseum.
