4 1/2 innings into the game, the A's hold a 4-0 lead over the Mariners, who have managed to let more A's score by way of the balk than their own players by any purpose.
Meanwhile, in Arlington, the Rangers and Angels gave into the 100+ degree heat and sub-100 IQ of their managers and finished their game with some of the ugliest brawling I've seen in years. Luckily for the A's, some are sure to be suspended. If you haven't seen the game highlights, select your favorite national sports network and tune in.
But before that, we've got half the game to play to rack up consecutive win #15 against the M's.
