A’s have traded youth for experience in pursuit of pennant

The idea that the A’s are a young, generally unknown team has lost some of its credence. Starting with the trade of Addison Russell and Billy McKinney to the Cubs for starting pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, the A’s… Continue Reading →

Jeff Samardzika strikes out 10 in victory - Jeff Samardzija (S) Oakland Athletics

Jeff Samardzija yielded two runs over eight innings and struck out 10 in defeating the Astros on Monday.

Jeff Samardzija, Josh Donaldson lead 8-2 win over Astros

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Minute Maid Park Jeff Samardzija was coming off his worst start with the A’s. Josh Donaldson was coming off a weird knee injury that unnerved him a bit. All was better Monday. Samardzija had one of his best starts with Oakland, not allowing a run until the eighth […]

Game #126: A's Rally Falls Short, Lose 8-5

The A's offense may have scratched together five runs in today's game, marking the second straight game to score at least five--and it's something--but their starting pitcher let them down today as Samardzija was pulled in the fourth inning, finishing his outing with seven earned runs. Look. The game was obviously lost today by Jeff Samardzija's inability to complete four innings, and the seven runs he earned along the way. That's the easy recap, and it's true. You won't win a lot of games where your starting pitcher gives up a 5-spot in a single inning and can't shut it down even after...

A's stumble and must regroup with Angels coming

A's stumble and must regroup with Angels coming

This is a week when the Oakland Athletics could really use some momentum. The first-place Los Angeles Angels are coming to the Coliseum for a key weekend series in the heart of the stretch run.

Samardzija struggles as A's lose 8-5 to New York Mets

Jeff Samardzija loses his second consecutive start as Oakland A's, in tuneup for series with the Los Angeles Angels, lose 8-5 to New York Mets

Jeff Samardzija shelled, A’s fall 8-5 to Mets

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum Oakland’s trades in July were supposed to shore up the A’s rotation for the stretch run, but that plan has yet to take full effect, particularly when it comes to the deal that sent top prospect Addison Russell to the Cubs. Jason Hammel has had such disappointing results with Oakland that his turn in the rotation is being skipped this week, while Jeff Samardzija –the primary addition for the A’s – came unraveled quickly in the third inning on Wednesday in the A’s 8-5 loss to the Mets. Oakland has dropped eight of the past 10...

Game #126: Oakland Athletics vs. New York Mets

After winning their first game all week last night, the A's try to sweep the brief two game series against the Mets before another off-day tomorrow. Today, the offense is tasked with a tough pitcher in Zack Wheeler. Jeff Samardzija needs to be great today to give the A's a modest two-game winning streak, especially with the lineup the A's are throwing out. The A's go for the sweep (doesn't that sound more fun than a losing streak?) today against the Mets as Jeff Samardzija will face off against Zack Wheeler. Wheeler has been nearly perfect in his last 9 starts, and he hasn't lost a single...

A’s lose 6-1 — Jason Hammel looks good again, bullpen doesn’t

That Jeff Samardzija trade is looking a lot better. Not just because of Samardzija but because of Jason Hammel, the other pitcher the A’s received in their Independence Day trade with the Cubs. Samardzija was the headliner, Hammel the head scratcher. For all of four starts. Suddenly, Hammel found the groove that got him a […]

Game Thread #116: Athletics vs. Twins (2)

We're halfway through our ballgame, and boy is it moving quickly ... Oh we started at six o'clock. The Athletics lead the Twins 4-2 thanks to nine total walks, especially the seven starter Trevor May yielded in his two inning Major League debut. Jeff Samardzija has not looked particularly sharp either, but is humming along with just two runs allowed through five and 93 pitches thrown. Let's go Oakland!
