Black Jacks! A’s win again!
The two Jacks, Hannahan and Cust, put the A’s over the top to give them the win 4-3. Backed by what else, but another solid pitching performance by Josh Outman who received timely run support to give him his fourth victory.
After the Twins put up a three spot in the top of the fourth, Jack Hannahan matched it in the bottom half of the inning by driving in three with a bases-clearing double to left center. This all came after Aaron Cunningham was drilled in the head by fastball to load the bases. The next inning proved to be the difference as Jack Cust crushed a solo-shot to right to give the A’s the final score of 4-3.
Outman was roughed up in the third but that was it. Outman (3-3) went six innings, striking out seven and surrendered all three runs on four hits, he walked two.
The draft begins tomorrow, what position would you guy’s like to be filled with the first pick? pitching, offense?
Take it easy A’s fans, seven straight is nice but eight is better!
