In Oakland tonight the A's continued the win big or not at all approach that has been 2015 so far.  As a team the A's are batting 299 so far in the short season and the clout was there again tonight.  Mark Canha hit his first Major League home run and the A's had put up 11 runs on the board by the end of the 4th inning to eliminate any suspense for the evening.  Drew Pomeranz threw 7 innings of shutout ball on only 2 hits and the bullpen completed the shutout to make the final 12-0.

It was Sonny Gray Jersey night.  The first 15,000 fans in the park all got one.  I brought a bunch of new friends to the game and I have quite a few of the jerseys available on eBay.

  April 10th Giants recap  

April 10th provided game 2 of a 4 game set between the Giants and the Padres.  Game 2 was much like game 1 of the series.  It was a pure pitchers duel matching Tim Lincecum with Brandon Morrow.  Both pitchers were dealking, putting up nearly identical numbers.  Both guys threw 7 innings allowing 4 hits and 3 walks each.  In a side note, I did want to bring up the fact that Moroow is a local kid, having been born in Santa Rosa.  The only difference in the two pitchers numbers is Morrow had 7 strikeouts compared to 5 for Lincecum.  Neither pitcher figured in the decision though.  Jeremy Affeldt took the loss for the Giants. In the eighth he allowed a walk to Clint Barmes followed by a screaming double to right by Wil Myers that almost cleared the wall.  Blanco could have handled the bounce off the fence better and the relay by Joe Panik was well up the line or Myers would have been dead meat and they might still be playing. 

On offense the Giants have now put up one run during the 21 innings they have played in San Diego.  Nori Aoki had two hits as did Buster Posey but the rest of the lineup couldn't bring them home.  Momma taught me that if you don't have anything good to say then stop talking.  I guess that's enough about the offense.  Which is a shame considering the fantastic performance by Tim Lincecum.  He had his splitter dropping off the table and he was changing speeds effectively.  It's just what I said he needed to do before the season started.  Velocity does seem to be an issue however.  I'm hoping it was just a slow JUGGS gun in San Diego, but I did not see even 90 out of Timmy.  I know 97 is never gonna happen again, but 88 leaves you extremely vulnerable.  Here's hoping he can bring it up to 91 or so.
