On the A’s podcast with Barbara:

#1 Barbara talk about the pitching efforts by Oakland A’s starter Adrian Martinez against the New York Yankees line up on Sunday going 5.1 innings, three hits, one earned run and struck out six hitters.

#2 Martinez has been called up by the A’s triple A affiliate in Las Vegas four times and this was his best appearance of the four with a great mix of pitches and keeping the hitters off balance with off speed pitches.

#3 A’s manager Mark Kotsay said. “This kid just seems to feed off big environments or the Triple-A numbers don’t show how he’s able to go out and perform here. He did that today against one of the best lineups in the league.”

#4 Martinez even had control over Yanks superstar Aaron Judge striking him out one three pitches. Judge even chased a few pitches and had to go down for them.

#5 The A’s head to Washington to face the Nationals at Nationals Stadium in Washington. Starting pitcher for the A’s on Tuesday night left hander Cole Irvin (6-11, 3.16) and for the Nationals right hander Erick Fedde (5-8, 4.88) a 4:05 pm first pitch.
