GOG 2014 #20 A's vs. O's. ANSWERS POSTED

After taking 2 of 3 from the Yankees the A's travel to Baltimore where they'll take on the Orioles for 3 games. Looks like the Orioles have only listed one of their 3 starting pitchers for this series.

Homework

Probable Pitchers

A's

O's

1. Series outcome (3 points) A's 2-1

2. Nelson Cruz is definitely putting his suspension behind him and is crushing the ball. Predict his PA/H/BB/K/RBI. (2 points each and then 1, 11 total) Does he hit a homer? Predict the same for Yoenis Cespedes. PA/H/BB/K/RBI. Does he hit a homer? (2 points each and then 1, 11 total, 22 overall)

Nelson Cruz: 12PA/2H/1BB/5K/0RBI no homer

Yoenis Cespedes: 14PA/4H/0BB/4K/1RBI no homer

3. As of this moment the A's have a .5 game lead for the best record in the American League. After this series are they still number 1? (if for some reason there ends up being a tie, it counts) (2 points) YES

4. For each game predict if the starter will get a Win, Loss, or ND. In the case of the Orioles, I'm hoping they will post who the starters will be on Saturday and Sunday before game time tomorrow. If not, just say which TBD you mean for the order. Example: Sonny Gray: win TBD#1 loss. (2 points each, 12 total)

Fri: Tommy Milone vs. Wei-Yin Chen Milone: ND Chen: ND
Sat: Sonny Gray vs. Kevin Gausmen Gray: L Gausmen: W
Sun: Scott Kazmir vs. Ubaldo Jimenez Kazmir: W Jimenez: L

5a) how many homers in the series both teams combined? (2 points) 8

b) how many stolen bases? (2 points) 2

c) how many games are started by both Jaso and Norris? (2 points) 1

d) are there any plays at the plate? (2 points) Yes
