Oakland A's get first win!
Thursday, May 11, 2006
Well, well, don't look now, but the 9 & 10 Oakland A's are quickly becoming the league's most improved team. Behind another great pitching effort, the A's pulled out a victory in their closest, most competitive game of the season Wednesday night in front of a huge crowd!
Tyler pitched two scoreless innings, striking out 3 batters in the process. Jaymes kept it close, only allowing one run in two innings and Drew did a great job closing out the game with 3 strikeouts of his own.
The defense was the biggest improvement of the night, getting 6 infield outs on ground and fly balls. Jimmy was awesome behind the plate, catching a season-high 3 innings. Outfielders kept the game close by hitting the cut-off man consistently and the infielders kept their gloves down, showing that all that practice pays off!
This was a team victory dedicated to Michael, who was forced to sit on the bench and cheer his team on because of a black eye suffered in practice. Thanks for the support, Michael!
The A's look to stay on track this Saturday against a tough Tabernacle team.
