Well, that first game thread didn't do much for me.
Aside from their pitching and their hitting, the game so far has been all A's. After 3 innings, the A's run differential in the first two games of this series has been reduced from +14, to only +6 with a 15-9 tally.
Instead of keeping the game close and finding the A's offense to blame for a heart-breaking loss, Blanton changed things up by giving up 8 runs, including 2 in the first, and a shocking bases loaded double from Dan Haren. It's now 8-0 D'Backs, and it could be a long six innings the rest of the way.
Show some life, A's!
