A’s have been in command of this game since Khris Davis’ two run blast in the second inning. Marcus Semien also added a two run shot and Mark Canha delivered a clutch two out run scoring infield single to put the fifth run on the board. Piscotty delivered a solo shot in the bottom of the sixth inning as well!
On the mound Mike Fiers did Mike Fiers things, allowing two runs, striking out four and scattering six hits through 5 1⁄3 innings of work. The A’s bullpen has now taken over and has the task of closing out the last 3 innings. The seventh inning didn’t go very smoothly for the bullpen as Yusmeiro Petit surrendered two runs to cut the A’s lead to 6-4 after 6 1⁄2 innings.
Lots of baseball still to be played but the hometown team has the lead!!
