Athletics #54 Sonny Gray Green Cool Base Stitched MLB Jersey


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Right fielder charged in as second baseman Ramiro Pena ran back to try to field a routine popup. The two collided, leading to one of San Francisco’s two three base errors in the game.

It was that type of night and it’s been that type of series for the banged up Giants jerseys.

The Giants jerseys made three errors behind starter Jake Peavy, leading to four unearned runs, as they dropped their third straight game in the Bay Bridge series, losing 7 1 to the Oakland Athletics jerseys.

“We just have to clean it up,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “That’s the one thing we were doing very well, is catching the ball. You deal with the streaks where you have trouble scoring runs but the one thing we should be consistent at is catching the ball. We’re a pretty good team defensively and that’s gotten away from us.”

A night after watching the bullpen give up 10 runs in a 13 11 loss, the Giants jerseys struggled in the field. Pena made one error, left fielder Angel Pagan dropped a fly ball for another three base error and third baseman dropped a routine foul popup.

That led to a rough night for Peavy (4 7), who was fuming on the mound while allowing seven runs three earned and five hits in 3 1/3 innings.

“It was certainly a frustrating night just on all fronts,” Peavy said. “We didn’t play our best. Just one of those nights. Not fun to endure.”

and each hit two run homers and (3 4) came off the disabled list to throw pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings to lead Oakland. The A’s have won six of seven and will go for a sweep in the two city series against their cross bay rivals on Thursday night.

“We always have this series marked on the calendar,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “There’s always a different intensity to it so you can kind of throw things out when these two teams play.”

The problems started early for the Giants jerseys, who have three starters on the disabled list with second baseman (concussion) joining right fielder and third baseman there earlier in the day.

’s popup in the third inning turned into a collision between Pena and Williamson. Pena hurt his ankle on the play and will be sidelined for up to a week.

Semien then scored on ’ bunt. After Coco Crisp tripled, Lowrie hit a high fly to right field that Williamson tried to catch at the wall. But the ball hit his glove and fell over the fence for a two run homer that put Oakland up 3 0.

“It would have been a great play if I made it,” Williamson said. “I felt like it was a play I should have made, especially after botching the routine pop up.”

Williamson was also called for interference when he slid past second base in the second inning, turning a potential rally into an inning ending double play, and hit into an inning ending double play with the bases loaded in the fourth.

Things unraveled for the Giants jerseys in the bottom half after Alonso’s homer made it 5 0. Semien hit a drive to left center that Pagan dropped at the wall for another three base cheap baseball jerseys error. Burns followed with an RBI hit that Pagan misplayed into a double. It will be the first time a team intentionally used a pitcher to hit instead of a DH since the Chicago White Sox jerseys allowed Ken Brett to do it in 1976 the Rays jerseys were forced to bat pitcher Andy Sonnanstine in 2009 because of a lineup card mix up.

Bumgarner is batting .175 this season with two homers and five RBIs in 40 at bats. He has nine homers in 183 at bats the past three seasons, a rate that would lead to about 36 home runs if he had a full season as a hitter.

Athletics jerseys: OF was scratched from the lineup with a bruised left shoulder after running into the wall Tuesday.


Giants jerseys: After winning 10 straight games started by Bumgarner (8 4), San Francisco has dropped the last two. Bumgarner gave up three last Saturday to the Phillies jerseys, marking the first time since April 15 he allowed more than two earned runs in a start.
