It’s a new day, and a new lineup.
I’m on radio, Javier sounds a tad bit wild. How did Vazquez look on that WP…pitch was stoppable or totally spiked?
I was busy opening the thread when it happened, so I didn’t see it. It sounded like it was on Vasquez from the tv announcers, but what do they know?
Javier looked great on that last batter.
Bregnant! He’s heating up people this is not a drill
Since the ASB: .325 .402 .550 .952, 11BB, 9K, 92PA, 22G, 18R, 15RBI (coming into today)
I may have misread, but I believe that when the A’s batting order was shown, the highest average was .237. Which probably means they’ll get 15 hits today.
Stevenson is at .286 (also his SL%), everybody else under .240
4-0 Astros at the top of the third. The A’s have the 'Stros right where they want them.
Vazquez with another hit.
