This game has started out perfectly in every way for the A’s tonight. Thanks to an early single by Khris Davis, the A’s took a 1-0 lead, and extended it with back-to-back jacks from Ramon Laureano and Jurickson Profar. Staked to a 3-0 lead early, Mike Fiers has been #A’sbrand awesome, shutting out the White Sox through five.
Meanwhile, over in Arlington, the Rangers rallied hard to beat the Astros, so if the A’s can hang on here, they could be staring at just a six-game deficit. We go to the bottom of the fifth.
LET’S GO OAK-LAND!
