A’s 8, Astros 1
W:Kazmir (2-0)L:Feldman (0-2)
OMG this game was hard to watch. The first inning was brutal and I think it took Feldman off his game. I am not saying he isn’t to blame because he is. He needed to rise above the shitty defense of Villar. He needed to rise above the fact that his team was not going to give him much run support. He just needed to rise above and do better. I like Feldman but he had a rough night, but I think he’ll bounce back in his next start. Asher Wojciechowski pitched four innings in relief. He did much better than his start on last Thursday. Should be promising when he returns later in the season (because we all know there will be a change before the season is over).
The Astros batters had 11 strike outs on the night. The Astros pitchers gave up 12 hits on the night. But, the good guys (the Astros) has twice as many walks as the A’s (4-2). The middle of the order is not producing yet. I assume they will otherwise Jacksonian should just call up the AA guys. Evan Gattis finally got a hit.
So, the GameZone has been much better this season so far. I am glad the Astros are on the tv because there is some solid gold comments happening. You should check it out.
Brad Peacock is starting the game tonight so should be interesting. Here’s to hoping the Astros play up to the competition tonight.
