Game Thread #122: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros

In a weird, weird baseball season, in which the Los Angeles Angels have a chance at the playoffs with their barely-.500 record, the Houston Astros have stood out early and often in the West; boasting the second-best records in the Major Leagues—second only to the record-setting Los Angeles Dodgers. It’s these Astros that the A’s will see today in Houston, as Sean Manaea will face off against Dallas Keuchel, who is fresh off a win in the battle-for-Texas series last week. Here are your lineups for tonight’s contest: Today's Lineups OAKLAND A'S HOUSTON ASTROS Rajai Davis...

Game #115: Rocky start for Smith ends in 7-2 loss

Game #115: Rocky start for Smith ends in 7-2 loss

The Chris Smith era might be over. Is the Chris Smith magic over? Will he never win as a starter? Quite possibly, unfortunately. Tim Beckham led off the game with a triple, and immediately scored on a Manny Machado groundout. 1-0 Orioles. The A’s retaliated with a run of their own in the bottom of the first. Rajai Davis singled to lead off, then stole second and was able to advance to third on an errant throw. He scored on a Jed Lowrie sac fly, and probably touched the plate but he might have lucked out that the O’s didn’t care to review it. Tied up at 1. Nothing to see here....

Rajai Davis HR gives Bob Melvin his 1,000th win

Bob Melvin was going to get his 1,000th career win eventually, and it finally came Saturday night. Thank you, Rajai Davis. The A’s entered the ninth inning trailing the Twins by a run, and Davis’ two-run home run — his second career walk-off homer — gave the A’s a 5-4 victory. Melvin is the ninth active manager with at least 1,000 wins. He sat on 999 since Sunday, and the A’s lost their next five games. It got to the point it was no longer about a milestone. Melvin’s priority was a win for the sake of a win. ...

Jaycob Brugman out of A’s lineup with stiff neck

TORONTO - Jaycob Brugman initially was in Oakland’s lineup Tuesday, but he was scratched with neck soreness and replaced in center by Rajai Davis. Was it a bad hotel bed, maybe a bad pillow? “I’ve never had this before and I’ve stayed at a lot of hotels - and lot of bad hotels, too,” the rookie said. Perhaps the artificial turf at Rogers Centre is to blame?

Game #96: Baseball is Pain, A’s Lose Healy and Game

A freak hop takes out both Healy and the A’s win I guess you win some, you lose some, amiright? Tonight was on the losing end, as the A’s battled hard, but ended up on the short end of the stick after a freak play in the sixth took out both Ryan Healy and the A’s chances of winning the game. And it’s funny, the A’s had plenty of later chances to recover and take the lead, but two really horrific at-bats by Yonder Alonso and Khris Davis after one really great at-bat by Rajai Davis stranded the bases loaded with first two, and then three outs. The A’s had a million chances to win...
