Game Thread #44: Oakland Athletics at Tampa Bay Rays (2)

Well, things were going along just swimmingly; the A's holding a 1-0 lead and dodging Rays' baserunners left and right, but it seemed inevitable that the A's would make an error (Muncy) and Scott Kazmir would make one big mistake, which of course, led to a 3-run home run. We're going to the sixth inning; the A's trail 3-1. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

No surgery for Coco Crisp’s neck injury, just rest, rehab

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Tropicana FieldCoco Crisp in a Chronicle file photo from last season. As Bob Melvin had indicated earlier in the week when Coco Crisp reinjured his neck, it’s the same problem Crisp had last season, which a neck specialist in Dallas confirmed on Thursday. Surgery could resolve the neck injury, which is a mechanical neck pain issue, but it would involve fusing vertebrae, and that would end Crisp’s career; neck fusion causes a loss in neck mobility, and if you can’t turn your head, you can’t play baseball. In addition, it’s dangerous to...

Tidbits from tonight’s A’s loss at Tampa Bay

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Tropicana Field Are there any positives for the A’s at all these days? Well, only a few, but sure, Ben Zobrist comes back Monday (he’s walked, singled and driven in a run so far tonight for Triple-A Nashville) and Sean Doolittle won’t be too far behind him. And Stephen Vogt hit his career-high 10th homer tonight. His 10 homers before the end of May tie an Oakland record set by Earl Williams and Dave Duncan. Sam Fuld, meanwhile, had two outfield assists for the first time in his career, kind of hard to believe considering his excellence in the...

Drew Pomeranz gets cortisone shot; Graveman to start

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Tropicana Field Kendall Graveman works vs. Texas earlier this season. Jason O. Watson/ Drew Pomeranz received a cortisone shot for his AC joint soreness, and the A’s starter, already on the DL, will resume throwing after the weekend. The hope is that the cortisone will calm down the inflammation that has kept Pomeranz from getting deep into games occasionally, even more of a concern recently given the struggles of Oakland’s bullpen. Kendall Graveman, as expected, will be called up Saturday to make the start at Tampa Bay. He’s been pitching...
