Sure it’s fun to see the A’s play at AT&T or enjoy the Giants at a discount over at O.Co, but calling them true rivals has always been a bit of a stretch.
The A’s have been in turbulent talks for weeks with Oakland and Alameda County officials over a new 10-year-lease at the aging O.Co Coliseum, but that may be moot if Raiders representatives can push through a plan to tear down the stadium and get a new NFL venue built in half that time.
Sonny Gray struck out eight to win his third straight decision, and the Oakland Athletics beat the San Francisco Giants 6-1 on Tuesday night for their sixth consecutive victory.
“The A’s looked a lot fresher,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “They looked quicker, they looked like they’re into it.”
Jesse Chavez matched a career high with nine strikeouts in six innings, and three relievers pitched scoreless ball to lead the Oakland Athletics past the San Francisco Giants 5-0 on Monday night for their fifth straight win.
Six players from the Oakland A’s have been selected for the All-Star game, the most since 1975.
Tim Lincecum took a shutout into the seventh inning against the San Diego Padres, the team he no-hit 11 days ago, to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 5-3 victory Sunday.
Jeff Samardzija pitched seven strong innings to win his Oakland debut and the Athletics beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 on Sunday to complete a four-game sweep.
The Oakland A’s have an agreement in place to acquire right-handers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs for three top prospects in a surprising trade for the team with the best record in the majors, two people with knowledge of the deal said Friday night.
Melky Cabrera couldn’t corral Nick Punto’s double with one out in the 12th inning, sending the Oakland A’s to a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday.
Here is a recap of the first week of the MLB Playoffs.
