The Seattle Mariners Jesse Winker scores from third base on Oakland A’s pitcher AJ Puk’s second wild pitch in the top of the ninth inning at Ring Central Coliseum in Oakland on Thu Jun 23, 2022
On the A’s podcast with Daniel:
#1 Daniel, the Oakland A’s (23-48) leading 1-0 for eight innings couldn’t hold on in the ninth inning as reliever AJ Puck threw two wild pitches that allowed two runs to scored as the Seattle Mariners (32-39) came away with a 2-1 win.
#2 Meanwhile the A’s back in the bottom of the first inning scored their only run of the game when Cristian Bethancourt hit a single that scored Sheldon Neuse. What makes this so unusual the A’s have had to scratch for getting a run of any kind.
#3 The A’s got superb pitching from starter Frankie Montas who threw shutout ball until he was lifted after eight innings of dealing. Montas’ line eight innings, two hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts.
#4 The A’s relivers Zack Jackson and AJ Puk couldn’t salvage the game in the top of the ninth. The A’s leading 1-0 saw the bases loaded and Puk replaced Jackson. Puk threw a wild pitch that allowed the Mariners Dylan Moore to score from third base to tie it up 1-1. Another Puk wild pitch allowed Jesse Winker to score from third for the Seattle go ahead run making it 2-1.
#5 The A’s go back to the drawing board and open a three game series in Kansas City where they’ll start Cole Irvin (2-4, 3.14) he’ll be opposed by the Royals Zack Greinke (0-4, 5.05) a 5:10 pm first pitch at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
