sfgate.com photo: New York Yankees’ DJ LeMahieu hits the game-winning walk-off home run in the 11th inning of a baseball game against the Oakland Athletics, Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019, in New York.
On the A’s podcast with Joey:
#1 A’s almost pulled off another win at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, but the Yankees were on a mission. After getting swept in the Yankees last meeting with the A’s and dropping the first game of the series the Bronx Bombers were not allowing it to happen in game two of the series as they pulled off a 4-3 11th inning win to tie the series.
#2 DJ LeMahieu hit the game-winning blast and walked off with the game-winning hit. LeMahieu is one of many key players who have been heroic in some of the Yankees wins this season.
#3 The A’s came into New York and after sweeping the Yankees in three in Oakland, and you have to know after losing the first game to open this series, the Yankees were saying no more.
#4 The Yanks’ Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez each homered and Judge made a catch to rob the A’s Matt Chapman of a home run in the top of the 10th.
#5 Oakland A’s pitcher Sean Manaea (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will get a start his first appearance since last season. He’ll be matched up against New York Yankees starter J.A. Happ (11-8, 5.57 ERA) for the finale of the series at Yankee Stadium.
