On the A’s podcast with Jeremiah:
#1 Was the Los Angeles Angels Shohei Ohtani just on or were the A’s hitters just off on Thursday.
#2 Talk about how Ohtani’s pitches were just working against the A’s line up who by the way have been struggling.
#3 Ohtani picked up his 15th win of this season and has been lights out on both sides of the baseball with his pitching and hitting will he win the MVP again this season or will New York Yankees Aaron Judge who just tied Roger Maris for the AL all time home run leader get the MVP?
#4 After retiring 22 straight batters Ohtani in the eighth faced the A’s Conner Capel who broke up the no hitter with a hit that deflected off Angels shortstop Livan Soto’s glove and into leftfield in the top of the eighth.
#5 Tonight the A’s will head up to Seattle to take on the Mariners. Ken Waldichuk (1-2, 7.15) will take the mound for Oakland. Seattle will start Logan Gilbert (13-6, 3.29). First pitch will be at 6:40 PM PT.
