Trailing 3-0 after 4 innings, and 3-1 after 5 1/2, the ATHLETICS who had been stranding baserunners all game, finally pushed home some much needed runs, for a come from behind, 8-3 victory over the DODGERS

The first 4 innings

  • - This was an ole fashioned pitchers duel between the DODGERS BAUMGARTNER and A's DICKENSON
  • - CHRIS only surrendered 6 hits over 5 innings and no earned runs 
  • - STEVE only gave up 3 hits over 5 innings striking out 4
  • - Unfort the A's made some untimely infield errors leading to 3 un-earned runs in the 2nd  
  • - The A's left 8 players stranded on base through 5 

The final 2 innings

  •  - BRIAN HERMAN pitched the top of the 6th for the A's first victory 
  • - STEVE gave way to 3 other pitchers including a weary ANDY and GIANCOTTO in the 5th & 6th
  • - The DODGERS unfort walked 3 A's in the 5th around a surprise FORBES bunt single
  •  - Then they threw a number of consecutive wild pitches which led to a quick A's 3 runs in the 6th 
  • - The A's combined patience at the plate with key hits sending 8 batters to the plate and scoring 7 runs
  • - The big blow was a towering game winning RBI double by rookie CLINT SHEPHERD w.JC scoring the winning run
  • - The DODGERS never got an out in the A's final AB's 

This was really close well played low scoring game with superb pitching by both teams until players on both teams seemed a little double headed tired by the end of the day - The DODGERS catcher deserves special recognition for catching 15 consecutive innings, wowza - The A's defensive player of the game was 1B DAVE OSBOURNE
