Anaheim, California — The Oakland Athletics made three mistakes in the first two innings, got 10 runners into trouble in the first six innings, and didn’t get an extra first base all night for the big A team beat.
A still made enough ugly moves and good enough pitches to keep up in the AL wild card game.
Cole Owen threw six solid rounds at his hometown stadium and won his first victory in four weeks. Oakland defeated the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 on September 17.
Josh Harrison had two RBIs. Mark Caha took the lead in the sixth inning (80-67). The latter won for the third time in a row and fell 2 1 in the final playoff spot. /2 games. Oakland kept pace with the Yankees (83-65) and won a game with Toronto (82-65). Toronto lost to Minnesota and got the second wild card halftime behind New York.
Team A has no chance to make progress, but they are happy to spend a difficult night in Anaheim and keep hope.
“You must win,” Matt Chapman said. “We can’t really dissect it too much. It’s too late in this season. Now the pressure is coming. From now on, we have to win every game, or at least our attitude is like this.”
Irving (10-13) hit seven hits and struck out. Although he gave up his sixth home run in four starts, he only allowed one home run. The locals of nearby Yorba Linda graduated from Servite High School, 6 miles from Angel Stadium.
“We can win as many victories as we can now, and we will accept,” Irving said. “It can be ugly. It can be perfect. Victory is victory, and we are doing our best.”
Oakland’s early errors included Irving’s running and scoring errors-but the defense was finally late, thanks to Starling Marte.
After the Angels’ clip-runner stupidly tried to move from first to third place on Luis Rengifo’s single, the center fielder eliminated Kean Wong in the final of the eighth inning.
“I have never seen anyone chase him,” said Chapman, who marked Huang in third place. “Honestly, I didn’t catch his ball from the outfield. He let it rip, and I was like, “Wow. “…He has a cannon. That’s why he has so many assists and no one even challenges him. Now I know why.”
Matt also achieved good results in Brandon Marsh’s deep-line drive, which was the second time in the ninth inning.
Sergio Romo scored the ninth in his third save, the first since September 2.
Kurt Suzuki homered, David Fletcher had two singles in the second innings of the Angels’ four innings. They lost for the seventh time in 11 games, opening another disappointing season to the end. A home court.
Soon after Oakland tied the score for the RBI of batsman Seth Brown in the sixth game, when Suzuki couldn’t keep up with Jose Matt’s pitch to Chapman, Caha ran home.
Matt (0-1) made the ninth move by the Los Angeles pitcher in the first six innings.
Jhonathan Diaz (Jhonathan Diaz) did not withdraw from the second game after becoming the 12th pitcher and 4th starter to make his major league debut for the Angels this season. The Angels used a record in 2021. Of 63 players. The Venezuelan left-hander only made 3 appearances in Triple-A before getting this unlikely promotion, playing for Salt Lake City with a score of 0-3.
Diaz walked four Aces and hit the batter, and was chased after giving up Harrison’s RBI singles and Matt Olsen’s sacrifice flight.
“As soon as I shot the first ball, the tension disappeared,” Diaz said through an interpreter. “I have reached my goal in life, now is the time to maintain it. I think this year has been very good for me. This year I have improved a lot.”
Diaz came on the court because the Angels decided to postpone the scheduled start of two-way superstar Otani Shohei, who had a sore arm. Ohtani threw a 30-goal bullpen on Friday, and the Angels announced in the game that he will start on Sunday against Team A.
