Coco Crisp continues upsurge with third career slam

Coco Crisp continues upsurge with third career slam

Coco Crisp has been around long enough to know that you can’t win them all. At the same time he didn’t want to see Sunday’s game get away, not after Sonny Gray had pitched well for six innings, handing a… Continue Reading → The post Coco Crisp continues upsurge with third career slam appeared first on Inside the As.

Angels rally in the eighth and walk-off in the ninth in 7-6 win over Athletics

Angels 7  Athletics 6 Hector Santiago was on the hill for the Halos today, our last defense against the sweep-hungry Athletics, and it went about as well as the previous starts we've seen from this team. In other words, it was a regression from his recent, two-start resurgence. In 6.0 IP, Santiago would give up 7 H but also 6 ER. Actually, this start kind of harked back to some similar outings he had weeks ago: mostly solid performance but killed by a couple homers. The fourth was what undid Hector, as he gave up a grand salami to our old buddy Coco Crisp, and then in the same side, he...

Game Thread #75: Athletics at Angels (2)

The 7th begins with the Athletics beating the Halos 6-2. A grand slam from Coco Crisp, followed by a Marcus Semien home run, put the Athletics ahead of the Angels 6-2 in the 4th.  The seventh inning begins with Danny Valencia due up with a bat.  Gray ends the 6th with 106 pitches (59S, 47B) so we will need to wait to see if he returns for the bottom of the 7th.

VIDEO: Crisp hits a grand slam, Semien adds a solo shot to give A's a 6-2 lead

The Angels entered the fourth inning with a 2-1 lead that was shattered when Coco Crisp hit a two-out grand slam off of Hector Santiago. Marcus Semien made it back-to-back with a solo shot to left (video below) that extended Oakland's lead to 6-2....

Crisp still looks like a winner at top of A’s lineup

The A’s have learned to adapt during a troubled season, nowhere more than at the top of the lineup. Coco Crisp was supposed to be the No. 2 man this year at the top of the lineup behind another speedster,… Continue Reading → The post Crisp still looks like a winner at top of A’s lineup appeared first on Inside the As.

The forgotten Jake Smolinski

One of the most ignored players on the A’s roster could become one of the most valuable. Entering the 2016 season, the Athletics oufield was unreliable, to say the least. Josh Reddick was coming off of a strong year, but Coco Crisp and Sam Fuld had shown zero offensive ability, and it was hard to fully trust Billy Burns’ BABIP-fueled rookie season. So, to help mitigate these concerns, the team went out and traded for Khris Davis and Chris Coghlan. The outfield has, again, been a mixed bag this season. Reddick was playing at an All-Star caliber level before breaking his thumb, and Coco...

Game Thread #52: A's vs. Twins (2)

We're heading to the bottom of the fifth, with the Twins on top 2-1. Coco Crisp led off the contest with a screaming fly ball, that somehow managed to scrap over the right field wall for a solo-shot -- putting the A's up one to nothing. Then the Twins rallied back for a point of their own -- thanks to an RBI single from Juan Centeno. Brian Dozier followed with an RBI sac-fly in the fifth, which saw Crisp and Chris Coghlan collide on a routine play. At this moment they both appear fine, but we'll keep you updated as the game moves along.
