Prospect Watch:

  • Nashville shutout Round Rock yesterday behind nice efforts from Yairo Munoz, Chris Carter, Joey Wendel, and Raul Alcantara. Read A’s Farm’s full report...

Today in Baseball History:

  • 1938 - The A’s win a twinbill from the White Sox, setting a league record by playing seven successive doubleheaders over the course of eight days.
  • 1950 - Earle and Roy Mack, Connie Mack’s sons from his first marriage, purchase a 54 percent interest in the A’s from Connie Jr., Connie’s son from his second marriage. Connie Sr., Earle, and Roy now own the club outright.

Best of Twitter:

  • Just a routine Sunday for Matt Chapman...
  • A brilliant troll by the A’s social media department...
  • Sonny has been really good so far...
  • Not only has he hit 11 homers in 18 games, he also starts triple plays...
  • More Giancarlo notes...
