Game Thread #76: Orioles vs. A’s

The A’s broke out the big sticks last night versus the Orioles, exploding for sixteen runs (six home runs) on fifteen hits in the 16-2 victory. On Monday night, Mike Fiers was the story, retiring seventeen straight batters in one stretch, pacing the A’s to a much closer 3-2 victory.

Today’s starter, Chris Bassitt will look to keep the momentum going as he takes the mound in the 12:35pm afternoon finale from Oakland. Bassitt (3-3, 3.68 ERA) will be making his eleventh start of the 2019 season after beginning the season in Triple AAA Las Vegas.
