Bay Area Blowout! S.F. Tops Oakland 9-2!


Under the lights in San Francisco, Oakland wasn’t far from home, but the bus ride back across the bridge felt like a transcontinental flight after a 9-2 beating from S.F. Pitching and defense made the difference in this contest as S.F. pitchers struck out 9 Oakland batters, dominating Oakland’s stacked lineup. Oakland pitchers, on the other hand, surrendered 19 hits, 14 of which were singles, while striking out only one batter. Oakland’s defense didn’t help matters much either as first baseman Billy bobbled two sure outs and Oakland’s outfield couldn’t seem to flag down anything. Luck was also on S.F.’s side as a bevy of bloopers fell for hits throughout the game. Oakland hitters seemed to hit the ball hard, but always at someone.

“It got pretty frustrating,” said manager Tim. “We couldn’t catch a break and halfway through our spirits were already pretty low. It’s time to look to the farm system for some real pitching.”
