Game #3: Wanted: Closer

Well, technically, I think this is game #2, and this evening's game was #3, but I confused myself, so just went with Game #2 and Game #3 in order. So Game #2 = day, Game #3 = night. But it doesn't matter, does it? What you need to know is that the A's won the first game easily, and were in line for a second win--and the rare doubleheader sweep--until their closer came in, and not only allowed the tying run, but also put the A's an additional 2 runs behind.

The leadoff walk comes back to haunt the A's, as Gregerson walked the opening batter of the 7th inning, and just a few batters later, erased the A's 3-2 lead. We're all tied up; going to the bottom of the 7th, 3-3. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Sam Fuld, doing his best impression of a perfect lead-off hitter, has recorded another hit to untie the game after a Cleveland homerun. Lindblom pitched into the fifth--the A's weren't likely to let him go much further--and Pomeranz got him out of it. We're going to the bottom of the fifth; 3-2 A's.

The A's have answered the bell and jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, thanks in large part to Sam Fuld (leadoff hitter extraordinaire) and his first inning triple! This was followed by a Lowrie single and a Cespedes double for the runz! Josh Lindblom has made it through his first two innings, allowing only a hit batter, thanks to a nifty play by Barton.
