Marty Lurie Talks San Francisco Giants Baseball

Bad Karma in Fenway

Tonight’s game was a tough loss for the A’s.The Oaktown boys were down by a score of 7 to 1 when I
caught up with the game. Looked like Schilling was in control and then,bam, its 7 to 3 in the 6th. The
guys in green and gray made it 7 to 4. Then the fateful 8th inning. Timlin gives up 4 hits and now the score is 7 to 5. Enter Foulke. The former A’s closer gives up a hit to Hatteberg that hits the chalk
and now its 7 to 6. Jermaine Dye hits a ball off the Monster at the 379 foot marker that Johnny Damon
can’t reach and now it’s 7-7.The score remains
that way until the bottom of the 10th.Damon singles
and Bill Mueller slices a ball into the gap and Damon
scores all the way from first base witha head first slide
as the relay from Crosby almost nails him-game over and the A’s are swept at Fenway. Although it was a heartbreaker there are positives. The A’s never quit and battled back from a huge deficit.
The bullpen did its job by holding the Sox from expanding its lead and letting the A’s offense put some runs on the board. The A’s now go to Cleveland and Eric Chavez will be joining the club.
The Indians should not be taken lightly. They are
a young club and are flirting with the .500 mark.
If the A’s take 2 out 3 it will be a big plus as the season reaches the halfway point. Jerry F
