The A’s secured a series win on Wednesday, taking the final game with the Milwaukee Brewers by the score of 6-1.
Despite being in the headlines for the wrong reasons again, Bartolo Colon was at his best on Wednesday. He surrendered a run in the bottom of the 1st, thanks to a Carlos Gomez RBI triple – but that was all he gave up. The score remained 1-0 until the 5th, when Seth Smith tied it up with a double play. Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo pitched well for most of the game, keeping Oakland hitters off-balance – but he might have stayed out there a bit long, as far as the Brewers are concerned.
The A’s finally broke through against Gallardo in the 7th, ultimately scoring 5 runs and breaking a 1-1 tie.
A two-run single from surging All-Star candidate Josh Donaldson put Oakland up 3-1, forcing Brewers manager Ron Roenicke to bring in lefty Michael Gonzalez. After a deep flyout from Chris Young (pinch-hitting for Seth Smith), Brandon Moss launched a three-run home run to l...
BEST OF MAXIM
Bartolo Colon is showing he's still capable of being a front-line starter with the Oakland Athletics.
Yovani Gallardo is trying to prove he's still the ace of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Colon and Gallardo will start opposite each other Thursday, when the A's attempt to re-establish their surge by taking two of three from the Brewers.
Colon (6-2, 3.33 ERA) is tied with Tommy...
As I watched the Oakland/Milwaukee game last night, I watched as the Brewer`s right fielder Ryan Braun step up to the plate, look back at the umpire, and had a laugh. I couldn’t help but think to myself, boy this kid has no idea what is going to happen to his life in two weeks.
By now you have probably heard the whisperings. The MLB is looking to suspend 20 of its players connected...
MILWAUKEE -- For the second straight day, Milwaukee's starting pitcher felt a hamstring injury pop up during the game.
While Marco Estrada felt his left hamstring strain on a pitch, Brewers right-hander Kyle Lohse felt his left hamstring grab while running the bases in the third inning. Lohse stayed in the game and pitched three more innings, but the hamstring played into Brewers...
Despite the Brewers beating the A's 4-3 in ten innings on Tuesday night, they're still 22-35 this season. They're coming off of a 6-22 month of May, tying the record for the worst month in franchise history. They're in last place in the NL Central, 15.5 games behind the division-leading Cardinals, who happen to have the best record in baseball. Their -53 run differential...
Over the past decade, it has been admirable the way that the Milwaukee Brewers achieved a balance between turning prospects into stars and adding veterans along the way to become competitive in the National League.
Ryan Braun became the pinnacle of that success. He went from the fifth overall pick in the 2005 draft, to the National League MVP in 2011. Not only did he help lead the...
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers have placed right-hander Marco Estrada on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
Despite his struggles in Triple-A this season, Tyler Thornburg has been recalled and will start Saturday in place of Estrada.
Estrada strained his left hamstring in the fifth inning of Monday's 10-2 loss to Oakland and had to leave the game after...
MILWAUKEE -- After waiting over four hours to make their first pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, the Milwaukee Brewers selected two players with tremendous upside.
With the 54th pick, the Brewers selected right-hander Devin Williams from Hazelwood West High School in Missouri. Milwaukee used the 72nd overall pick to take prep shortstop Tucker Neuhaus...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Marco Estrada is unlikely to make his next scheduled start after straining his left hamstring in Monday's loss to Oakland.
Estrada was moving better Tuesday afternoon, but he's not very confident he'll be able to take the ball Saturday against Philadelphia.
"I don't know if this start's going to happen or not...
The Milwaukee Brewers may have to place starter Marco Estrada on the disabled list. This comes after the 29-year old suffered a hamstring strain. He had to leave his start last night in the fifth inning after suffering the injury. The team will evaluate him further today.
Adam McCalvy of MLB.com says the Brewers are worried Estrada may not be able to make his next start...
Carlos Gomez scored from first on Yuniesky Betancourt's line drive in the gap between center and right in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.
John Axford (2-3) got the win with a scoreless 10th. He retired Yoenis Cespedes, whose first career multi-homer game had given the Athletics a 3-0 lead...
Adam Rosales hit a two-out homer in the top of the 10th inning, and the Oakland Athletics had a season high four home runs in a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.
Rosales' fourth homer of the season came off White Sox reliever Matt Thornton (0-2), a 1-1 pitch that was just fair to left field.
Yoenis Cespedes hit two home runs for the second time in three...
It appears that Yoenis Cespedes took a liking to multi-homer games after notching the first two-homer game of his career this past Tuesday in Milwaukee. The A’s second-year star slugger connected again for a pair of solo-homers against the Chicago White Sox Thursday in the A’s 5-4 extra-inning win.
Including Cespedes’ two blasts, the A’s also got solo-homers from Josh Reddick...
