Oakland A’s pitcher Sonny Gray recorded a strange out during yesterday’s game against the Seattle Mariners.
Watch as Mariners’ third baseman Kyle Seager hits the ball off the first base bag and the ball caroms right into Sonny Gray’s glove.
Gray won the race to first and recorded the out. If you’re scoring at home, that’s a “1U”, but we know the base itself assisted this play.

The Oakland A’s have had a rocky start to the regular season. Between the rainy weather and some disappointing outings, Athletics fans are beginning to questions how successful that A’s will be this year. Let’s take a look at what went wrong during the first week.
1) New closer Jim Johnson’s disappointing outings
Johnson has only made three appearances as an Athletic...
The Oakland Athletics have had a ton of injury news surfacing in the past 24 hours. They're off to a mediocre 3-3 start but that would be a 5-1 start if Jim Johnson hadn't blown a couple saves. The last thing this team can afford to have happen is a growing list on the Disabled List. They're not capable to go out and fill those spots due to their financial restraints...

Have you ever had a couple of bad days at a new job despite trying to make a good impression? Ever had thousands of people scream at you for making a couple of mistakes? Have you ever had an angry mob tell your bosses to send you home for the day, or banish you to your former employer?

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Yoenis Cespedes proved he can play through a hurting right heel, giving Scott Kazmir and the Oakland Athletics a spark with a pair of RBI that helped spoil the Minnesota Twins' home opener with an 8-3 victory on Monday.
Cespedes has been hobbling around the last few days with the injury, but the team wasn't worried enough about it to hold him out of the...
The Oakland A's activated right-hander Ryan Cook from the 15-day disabled list on Monday and sent down right-hander Evan Scribner.
Scott Kazmir had been dealing with some back stiffness prior to Monday’s game so it should not come as a surprise that he did not have his best stuff. Still he had enough to pitch his way to a win over the Minnesota Twins.
Kazmir allowed three runs on six hits while walking four and striking out five during his six innings of work in what ended up being a 8-3 win for the Athletics...
On Saturday night in Visalia, Ryan Cook’s second rehab outing for the Stockton Ports didn’t go to plan.
The Oakland A’s right-hander allowed a home run to the first batter he faced, and only ended up pitching 2/3 of an inning before reaching his predetermined pitch count. On the night, the 26-year-old walked a pair, gave up three hits and also recorded two strikeouts.
When the A's are at their best, they get a little bit of everything from everyone, and Monday was textbook in that regard.
The A's used walks, balks, homers and hit batters to beat the Twins 8-3 in Minnesota's home opener at Target Field. Scott Kazmir, signed as a free agent to replace Bartolo Colon, earned his second victory in two starts for Oakland.
Joe Lacob, the majority owner of the Golden State Warriors, is interested in buying the Oakland Athletics, as Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Reigning AL saves leader Jim Johnson struck out two and closed it out this time after losing back-to-back outings to begin with his new team, sealing the Oakland Athletics' 6-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
The Coliseum was buzzing Sunday afternoon. Not with the traditional ballpark ambiance, but with the vuvuzela-like murmur of a whistle from the 7,500 bracelets turned-to-instruments given away to kids on Little League day.
The bats of A’s sluggers made plenty of noise of their own, as Brandon Moss and Yoenis Cespedes blasted their first home runs of the season in a 6-3 come...
