Happy Tuesday and welcome to another exciting game of A's baseball! (That was sarcastic, in case it needed a disclaimer.)
Today's hard-luck starting pitcher is one Chris Bassitt, who sports an ERA of 3.07, yet holds a record of 1-7 on the season. Can't we please get the poor guy his second win before the season comes to a close? Also, did I mention that this game counts for the Angels, who are making a late-season playoff push?
Let's do this.
