Thursday 19th Oct 2017

It was a busy morning for me, as I got up at 4:30, caught a 6:45 flight to Phoenix, picked up a rental car, grabbed a sandwich, and shot off to Phoenix Muni for the Athletics game against the Colorado Rockies.

Oakland starter Tommy Milone comported himself nicely with a pair of shutout innings, allowing a walk, in fact the Oakland staff held the Rockies to gooseggs save the sixth inning when Andrew Werner proved hittable, allowing five knocks including a serious three-run blast to Nolan Arenado (the future third sacker also clubbed a deep fly off Sonny Gray that Coco Crisp ran down).

Other highlights included a pair of hits by Crisp, and a hit, along with a pair of HBPs to Hiroyuki Nakajima who also stole his first base of the spring.

Oakland fly chaser Josh Reddick belted a three run shot to get the Oakland scoring started (he also contributed a single before his day was done) and first sacker Brandon Moss also chipped in a big fly.

Reddick hit his dinger off Jhoulys Chacin, who was moderately effective in his second spring start, allowing four hits, a pair of walks, and three runs over 2.1 innings while striking out three.

The win went went to Gray as Oakland scored a couple of more times off the Rockies to end the contest at 6-3.

It was a nice sunny day in the Valley of the Sun, but the day belonged to the Oaklanders, in handy fashion.
