Marty Lurie Talks San Francisco Giants Baseball

What a way to end a road trip.

The A’s ended their eleven game road trip with 7 wins against 4 losses. They played 3 first place teams, the Rangers,the Yanks and the Twins. They could have had an even better record and taken 2 out 3 from the Yanks but they didn’t but they showed their grit by taking 3 out of 4 from the Twins and the
series with the Twins was as advertised. Two tough
gritty teams playing each other hard and never giving in, although today’s game was a laugher of sorts for the A’s. Both teams had to be tired after
the 18 inning marathon on Sunday. I said earlier that the A’s would be okay if they got a slpit in
Minnesota. They did better than that. They took 3 out of 4.They come home with a game and half lead over the Angels and 2 and 1/2 over the Rangers who were swept by Baltimore.
The A’s seem to be getting help from everyone
up and down the lineup. They now play Detroit ( lost 2 of 3), Kansas City and, yikes, the suddenly hot Orioles led by our old friend, Miguel Tejada who is now leading the American League with runs batted
in.Ouch ! Detroit is slipping in the standings (big deal) and
Kansas City is out of the race. However, you can never let up against teams like these.They have
a way of rising up and can beat you . The A’s always play hard and I don’t think Macha will let up. Can Macha hit for this team?
This team plays well in Oakland and let’s hope they can open up a bigger lead on the Angels.
