A's rookie homers for fifth game in a row

20 Setiembre 2017

Early, it looked like A's rookie first baseman Matt Olson would steal headlines again, belting a solo home run in the second inning to spot his team a 1-0 lead. It's the 23rd home run of the season for the A's rookie in just 173 at-bats, and he's raked 19 of those since Aug. 18. The 24-year-old rookie has dropped three of his last four decisions, with the win during the span occurring when he held the Houston Astros to one run and five hits over six innings.

The Tigers and A's finish their three-game series at Comerica Park today. Detroit starter Matthew Boyd was at his very best with a one hit complete game performance that upped his record to 6-10. "I don't have any more adjectives to use for him". Presley's homer was the 5,693rd of the major league season, tying the record set in 2000. "I don't even know what to say".

Kinsler's homer was his 20th. The Athletic logged six hits and walked three times with Chad Pinder and Matt Olson going deep while Joey Wendle clubbed a grand slam. Castellanos was moved this month from third base to right field to open a spot for one of the organization's top prospects, Jeimer Candelario. Cotton was able to play catch on Tuesday without significant discomfort. He became the 14th pitcher in club history to allow two hits or fewer in a shutout and not walk a batter. Tests showed no fractures, and he is being watched for concussion symptoms. Sanchez allowed one run in six innings against the Chicago White Sox, striking out 11.
