Open Thread: Game 39 - A's vs. Royals (cont.)

New, 257 comments

The A's makeshift lineup had us all worried the team could end up being part of history tonight, with Odalis Perez (of all people) posting five no-hit innings. Even more improbable than a Perez no-no? The following phrase: Jason Kendall, hitting machine. Kendall broke up the no-hit bid in the 6th with a leadoff double, and knocked in two with a single in the 7th, tying the game at 2-2. Meanwhile Blanton is breezing through the Royals lineup after a shaky first. We return you to the action tied 2-2 at the top of the 8th. Go A's!
