Astros, now the A’s role models, come out on top again

HOUSTON - The Astros simply own the A’s to the point that they are now Oakland’s inspiration. In the first two games at Minute Maid Park, Oakland has scored just one run. The A’s fell 3-0 on Saturday, hitting into six double plays and wasting another decent outing by Kendall Graveman. They’ve dropped 19 of their past 21 games against the Astros. Just four years ago, Oakland took 15 of 19 games from Houston en route to the division title. Now the Astros are in first place and the A’s in last. "How quickly it can flip," A’s...

A’s Chad Pinder learned versatility back home

This A’s road trip will be a significant one for Chad Pinder, who next week will be making his first-ever appearance at Camden Yards as a big-league player. Pinder grew up an Orioles fan in Poquoson, Va. His father, Chris, played in Baltimore’s system and Pinder got his first taste of the majors when they’d visit the Orioles’ clubhouse and dugout to see Chris Pinder’s former minor-league trainer. And it was while watching an Orioles game on TV that Pinder decided on his future. “I remember getting pizza with my dad after a high...

A’s Matt Olson getting into swing of things

A’s Matt Olson getting into swing of things Baseball’s chicken-and-egg question — do players thrive because they get consistent playing time or do they get consistent playing time because they’re thriving? — has a perfect case study in A’s first baseman Matt Olson. Olson homered in each of the final three games of the Baltimore series over the weekend. Olson, 23, has accepted his fate of yo-yoing between Oakland and Triple-A Nashville. “It isn’t as bad of a gig as the media makes it out to be,” Olson said before going 0-for-4 Monday. Olson said that manager Bob Melvin...

A’s won’t skip Sean Manaea in rotation

A’s won’t skip Sean Manaea in rotation Despite Sean Manaea’s rotten stretch lately, the A’s have no plans to skip the left-hander’s next turn in the rotation, manager Bob Melvin said Sunday. Because Manaea threw just 28 pitches in the worst outing of his career Saturday, the light workload essentially equates to being skipped as it is, Melvin pointed out. Melvin said that Manaea’s bullpen routine will be adjusted - instead of throwing his bullpen two days after a start, he will go three days later. Any time a guy that good struggles the way he has, it’s a concern, but...

A’s pitching falters again, Orioles roll 12-5

A’s pitching falters again, Orioles roll 12-5 A crowd of 29,742 turned out Saturday night at the Coliseum, mostly to watch the A’s play Baltimore as the prelude to a postgame fireworks show. The outcome essentially was decided in the top of the first inning, when the Orioles thrashed Oakland starter Sean Manaea on their way to seven runs. Manaea lasted only one-third of an inning, extending a terrible stretch for Oakland starters. The Orioles scored seven runs and rapped out eight hits in the 26 minutes it took to play the half-inning. Manaea seemed to lack velocity on his fastball...
