A's Rally to Edge Cubs at Riverview

SP Richard Morban hurled four innings off shutout ball and Kevin Richards drilled an RBI double with two outs in the 7th inning to tie the game and lofted a sacrifice fly to drive-in what proved to be the winning run in the top of the 9th, as the Athletics Green squad rallied to edge the Cubs "A" team 3-2 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Monday morning on Field #5 at the Riverview Baseball Complex on John Arguello Way in Mesa, AZ.

    Cubs were 1 for 9 with RISP.

    Neither of the Cards who scored had to take the bat off of their shoulder.

    With the game on the line, Joe sends up Tony Kemp.

    2019 season in microcosm.

    p.alonso (NYM) gets #50...not bad for a rookie.

    also, MIL wins because of course why not.

    cubs are 2 games behind in the WC standings for the 2nd slot...5 games behind STL in the central.

    Welp. I guess I will continue to pay attention to the Wild Card race? Dropping the Michael Wacha game is bad.

    Another game, another set of golden opportunities to add on to a lead wasted.

     

  • Eric S 9 hours 12 min ago (view)

    And nine hits ... with one run to show for it

     

  • crunch 10 hours 18 min ago (view)

    6 innings, 5 pitchers used...and the cubs are down by 1 to show for it.

    I hate Tommy Edman, and those of his ilk. The pissbirds are masters of getting a few good years out of middling prospect types like him. DeJong, Jon Jay, Matt Adams, Tommy Pham, Allen Craig, Matt Carpenter... the list goes on and on.

    Trades involving players on minor league reserve lists are prohibited beginning at 12 PM (Eastern) on the 7th day prior to the originally-scheduled conclusion of the MLB regular season through the last day of the MLB regular season (including a day in which a Game #163 and Game #164 tie-breaker game is played or a day in which a re-scheduled game is played after the originally-scheduled conclusion of the MLB regular season).

    If he makes four more appearances prior to the conclusion of the MLB regular season, David Phelps' 2020 club option salary escalates from $3M to $5M (plus up to $3.25M in performance bonuses).

    Conversely, Padres closer Kirby Yates has allowed only two HR with a .184 OppBA and 13/100 BB/K in 59.2 IP and  Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez (now on Restricted List) has allowed just five HR with a .197 OppBA and 13/90 BB/K in 60.0 IP.
