Game #122: Graveman Nearly Perfect With All the Run Support

If you missed tonight's game, it was a doozy; the A's won 9-0; their nine run, including home runs from Stephen Vogt, Yonder Alonso, and Khris Davis backed Kendall Graveman's complete game, two-hit shutout. Graveman was two hits from being perfect tonight; a bright spot in an otherwise dismal year for the A's. The 2016 Oakland Athletics are an enigma this year. This team can turn in an absolutely disastrous performance all week, playing just above the level of Little League, and then they can turn around and do what they did tonight against the White Sox; they destroyed James Shields and...

Giants face gantlet of good starters, the new Casilla plus lineup

Giants face gantlet of good starters, the new Casilla plus lineup The Giants get no breaks over the next four games. Given the pitchers they will face, it's almost like a playoff series. At 15-1, with a 2.63 ERA and 161 strikeouts, Strasburg must be considered a Cy Young front runner with Clayton Kershaw out of the picture. Fernandez is only 26-2 with a 1.62 ERA in 38 career starts at home. The Giants beat Gonzalez in San Francisco on Sunday, but Roark held the Giants to one run in seven innings in the opener of the four-game series at AT&T Park. With a 6.29 ERA and 14 homers allowed...
