Steve Bartman Included Among Fan Cutouts Down LF Line at A's vs. Mariners Game

Sun, 2020-08-02 15:24

There was a head-turning fan cutout included among those down the third base line at T-Mobile Park for Sunday's game between the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners: Seattle notably did not include a disclaimer with the cutout explaining Steve Bartman has one more World Series ring than the entire Mariners franchise after the Chicago Cubs gave him one for their 2016 efforts.

Seth Brown gets a start as A's face old friend Kendall Graveman

Sun, 2020-08-02 12:17

The A’s are facing a familiar starter Sunday in Seattle’s Kendall Graveman and, like many other teams did when Graveman pitched for Oakland, they’re going with a left-handed heavy lineup. Seth Brown, notably, will make his first start of the season as the A’s designated hitter. Brown, who had 37 homers at Triple-A last season and was a spark for the A’s after a late-season call-up, has just one pinch-hit at-bat in the first eight games this season.

Long anticipated first big-league start at hand for A's Jesús Luzardo on Tuesday

Sun, 2020-08-02 10:57

He’s one of the best young pitchers in the game, with top of the rotation ability,” one American League executive said. A tremendous acquisition for that trade. The A’s obtained Luzardo in the Sean Doolittle-Ryan Madson deal in 2017, getting reliever Blake Trienen and infielder Sheldon Neuse at the same time, a classic trade that helped both teams, with Doolittle helping the Nationals to the title last year.

Oakland didn't score a run in six innings against Mariners left-hander Yusei Kikuchi, tying the score on Chad Pinder's two-run homer in the seventh against the Seattle bullpen.

A's win 3-2 in 10 innings on Robbie Grossman's pinch-hit double

Sat, 2020-08-01 21:53

Amid a quiet start, the A’s have maintained that it’s only a matter of time before their lineup starts to produce up to its potential. Saturday, at least, rewarded their patience. Robbie Grossman’s pinch-hit double in the 10th inning drove in Tony Kemp, who’d started the inning on second base under the new extra-innings rule, and closer Liam Hendriks stranded his runner to save a 3-2 win for the A’s over the Mariners in Seattle.

A's Ramón Laureano exploring center field in depth

Sat, 2020-08-01 17:54

Ramón Laureano has set a high standard for his own defense in center field but still impressed A’s manager Bob Melvin with his sprinting backhand catch of Austin Nola’s drive Friday night. I thought it was over his head to start,” Melvin said. He had to have a perfect route to catch that ball.

The A’s hitting through seven games, including three straight losses, may be cause for “concern” but not “panic,” manager Bob Melvin said. We certainly don’t want to be where we are numbers-wise offensively,” Melvin said Saturday, as the A’s entered their game at Seattle ranked 28th in average (. and OPS (.

Jesús Luzardo will make his first big league start Tuesday against the Texas Rangers at the Oakland Coliseum, manager Bob Melvin announced.

Column: Let's make baseball weirder with even more new rules

Sat, 2020-08-01 12:07

Here’s a few more things baseball can do in this, a season like no other: NEW COUNTS: Batters will now start with 1-1 counts, much like competitive softball. This will save on pitcher arms, ultimately allowing starters to go four, perhaps even five, innings. BIG HITS: Let’s face it, all home runs aren’t created equal.
