Who else but Huston Street to finish the A’s off and complete the sweep for the third consecutive day. Who better than Carlos Gonzalez to drive in two of the three runs for the Rocks. The offense with their minds elsewhere failed to get on the board and took their fifth straight loss 3-1.
Pitching was good enough to win for the A’s, starter Vin Mazzaro allowed three runs in five innings of work. Mazzaro (2-3) gave up five hits walked four and struck out eight but was stuck with the loss. The bullpen held their own and threw the remaining four innings in shut-out fashion.
1-11 with runners in scoring position is tough to watch but it’s reality with the “new” Athletics. The A’s sit in the standings in last place and second to last in the Major Leagues at 31-43.
They have officially hit rock bottom so whats next?
