Open Thread: Game 9 - A's at Blue Jays (Cont.)

New, 707 comments

After a messy first inning that saw the A's give up 3 runs, Greg Smith has settled down in his major league debut, holding the Blue Jays without a run over the last 3 innings, and not allowing  a hit since the first frame. Meanwhile, the A's posted 2 runs in the 4th to cut the margin to a single run, but left us all aghast (again) by managing not to score in the 5th inning, despite having the bases loaded and nobody out.

We head to the bottom of the 5th with Smith throwing a 1 hitter, but trailing 3-2.
