Thursday night’s contest between the A’s and Mariners was as close to a win-win as you can get in professional sports. The competing A’s got one win closer to a Wild Card berth, and the deflated Mariners got to celebrate a franchise legend on what will almost assuredly be his final performance for Seattle. Felix Hernandez had a solid outing, but Oakland prevailed, 3-1.
Chapman the Difference Again
Matt Chapman may be getting his mojo back at just the right time. After a massive home run in the 9th inning of Wednesday’s game, Chapman was right back at it on Thursday.
