On the A’s podcast with Barbara:

#1 Barbara Oakland A’s first baseman Seth Brown had himself an after noon slugging two home runs off Baltimore Orioles pitcher Spencer Watkins.

#2 Oakland starter Adrian Martinez and four A’s relievers combined for a shutout giving up a combined three hits, two walks and four strikeouts in six innings of work.

#3 The loss for the Orioles reduces them in the AL wild card standings and increases the number of games in chasing the third and final wild card spot held by the Toronto Blue Jays by 2.5 games.

#4 The win for the A’s avoids them from getting swept by the O’s. The A’s did have to work for it scoring a run in the top of the second and another two runs in the top of the third.

#5 The A’s return to the Oakland Coliseum for a brief two game series starting Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves starter Kyle Wright (17-5, 2.85) goes for the Braves and the A’s will start Cole Irvin (7-11, 3.35) a 6:40 pm PDT first pitch.
