GOG #13 vs Anaheim

Fangraphs

Baseball Reference

1. Series outcome (2 games) [2 points]

2. Josh Reddick has been on an absolute tear recently. The past seven games has him batting nearly .400 with 9 RBIs and 4 home runs. How many H / HR / RBI / K for Josh in the series? [2 points each; 8 total]

3.

#Athletics have been successful in each of last 19 stolen base attempts, marking longest streak in Oakland history since May 13-27, 1992.

How many steals for each team in the series? Name one player from each team that steals a bag (none is OK) [2 points for each team's total, 3 points for correct player; 10 total]

4. If you haven't noticed, the Rangers' offense is fairly good. The team leads the majors in batting average, hits, RBIs, on base %, and slugging. Guess over/under/equal for each category for Texas' batters in the series... 19 H / 4 HR / 9 BB / 10 runs / 11 K's [2 points each; 10 total]

5. WPA, I'm kind of a big deal edition. Name one player for each team, each game that has a WPA over .100. Your answer should have two Rangers and two Athletics. "None" is OK. Same rules apply as the Tigers GOG: doesn't matter which game they do it in, but if you want points for the same player in both games, you have to name them twice. [3 points each; 12 total]

6. A big part of the Rangers unbelievable start to the season has been Josh Hamilton. As of Tuesday afternoon, he is batting .400, the highest average among players with at least 50 at bats. Guess Josh's AB / H / BB / RBI for the series. [2 points each; 8 total]

7. Brandon McCarthy takes the ball for the Thursday matinee against his old team. After his last start, it appears that Brandon is back to his usual awesomeness. Guess his IP / H / K / BB. Also, does Brandon get a win, loss, or ND? [ 2/ 2/ 2/ 2/ 1]
