Game Thread #38: Oakland Athletics vs. Washington Nationals (2)

Well, um. It's not exactly a traditional perfect game, but it is pretty perfect. The A's have absolutely unloaded on Gio Gonzalez in the first two innings. Most of the runs came off the bat of Derek Norris, who hit not one, but two 3-run home runs, both on a 3-0 count. Yes, I'm serious. And yes, it was as awesome as it sounds. We're heading to the bottom of the third; the A's scored 4 in the first and 3 in the second.
