the A's are having a magical season.
up 1 with no outs and runners on the corner
the A's relieve their closer with middle reliever Jerry Blevins
and he gets a big strikeout then follows that up with a 5-4-3 GIDP
to win the ball game.
21 games above .500 and 3 games behind Texas for the div league.
I know Oakland is a very young team, but this team can be DANGEROUS should they win their one game playoff.
I know it is unlikely especially considering their remaining schedule but they are only 3 games out of West lead. I agree with you because the A's have been mashing post all star break, have the best record since June 2nd, and continue to get stellar starting and bulpen pitching.
Rookie pitchers shutting down the Angels; Parker, Straily and Griffin have been great this series. The A's go for the sweep with their 24 year old Ace on the mound, however, I'm concern that Weaver will make A's hitters look foolish on a number of occasions.
