A's Game Recaps

Game #17: Kazmir goes 8, A's walk off vs. Astros

It appeared the Athletics would end up leaving far too many men on the bases, but ninth inning heroics from Jed Lowrie, Josh Donaldson, Yoenis Cespedes, Alberto Callaspo, and Josh Reddick allowed the A's to pull off a 4-3 win over the Astros.

Game #16: Cespedes and Reddick Lead A's to Win

In what would be a Houston-included blowout for the A's, tonight's game featured four home runs for the A's, ten walks for the A's, redemption for Josh Reddick, and strong words for Jed Lowrie by...

Game #15: A's throw away lead against the Angels

The A's flush away a 4-1 lead, lose painfully in the 12th inning. And we didn't even use Jim Johnson this time.

Game #14: A's escape with 10-9 win in wild affair

{channelling my inner Ray Fosse} Wow. Just...wow.

Game #13: Jaso Saves The Day With Pinch-Hit Homer

For 8 innings it looked like it was Albert Pujols' day, and just a "night of frustration" for the A's hitters. But with one mighty swing off the bench, pinch-hitter John Jaso blasted a "no-doubt"...

Game #12: Power Pitching Early, Power Hitting Late

Scott Kazmir was brilliant this afternoon, unleashing a wipeout-changeup to go with an explosive 93MPH fastball and disappearing slider. So good was Kazmir that he retired the first 10 batters and held the Mariners to just 2 hits through 6 innings...

Game #11: Gray Shines Again, A's Beat Mariners 3-1

The Athletics beat the Mariners behind a two-run second-deck home run from Josh Donaldson in the first inning and seven strong innings from Sonny Gray. And closer-by-committee works!

Game #10: Late Inning Rally Not Enough

Well, at least this game turned out to be watchable after all. After a horrific start at the plate and in the field, which all but buried the quality work by Tommy Milone tonight, the A's put...

Game #9: Straily, Donaldson, Fuld Charge Sweep

As much as Dan Straily likely appreciated Oakland's six runs Thursday afternoon, he would have happily settled for two. The 25-year-old right-hander cruised through seven innings of three-hit ball...

Game #8: Chavez, Otero and Norris Hailed As Heroes

It certainly has been the strangest start to a season that I've ever seen, as the A's turned a simple, fast, all-but-guaranteed win into a nightmare for their fans, their announcers, the replay...

Game #7: A's Coast To 8-3 Win Over Twins

The A's took the lumber to the Twins for a (dare I say) easy victory to ruin the Twinkies' home opener.

Game #6: Early Bumbles, Late Rumbles; A's Take Set

Final Score: A's 6, Mariners 3 Before the game on this Little League Day, one local little league team was allowed to have a player stand next to each of the A's starters for the National Anthem....

Game #5: Opening Day Comes Four Games Late

Ho hum; another game against Felix Hernandez, another A's loss. The A's showed absolutely no signs of life until the ninth inning, and a would-be-game-tying home run came up a few feet short; such...

Game #4: Coco Walks Off

Ken Korach might have said it best during the 10th inning last night: "If you walk nine batters, you should lose the game." Lo and behold, the Mariners ended up walking 10 batters, and they lost....

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...

Game #2: Kazmir Creates Big Impact In A's Debut

Scott Kazmir, acquired as an off-season addition to the A's starting rotation, got a lot of help from the A's offense, but needed little of it, as the A's take the first game of the doubleheader...

Game #1: A's lose 10th straight Opening Day

Like watching a movie called Titanic, you knew how this was going to end.
