A relatively tight game suddenly became a blowout as the A's put up 8 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to roll to a 13-2 victory.
Emil Brown, Ryan Sweeney, and Bobby Crosby each recorded three hits to lead a 15-hit A's attack.
Positives abound: Chad Gaudin threw a great game, the A's touched up Bannister for five runs in five innings, and the offense hopefully built some confidence going forward to carry into the rest of the series.
And we did it all while extending our consecutive games with an error streak on defense - eleven and counting! :)
