The seventh began with a pitching change, Adam Ottavino (#0) replacing Loaisiga. This worked well for the Athletics who scored via some great batting and running. With one out, Robbie Grossman singled on a line drive to left field. He then followed with a stolen base. Then came Mr. Platinum who doubled and drove in Grossman to put the A’s ahead 3-2. [Note: The A’s got very lucky on a bad call; Chappy’s ball was foul. ‘Bout time we got a call since it’s usually the other team!] This was Chapman’s 35thdouble of the season!

While the bases were loaded in the 8th, all were left stranded. The Athletics enter the bottom of the 8th with the score still Athletics 3, Yankees 2.
