Сообщение The Oakland Athletics‘ minds are already partly
ANAHEIM http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-carl-yastrzemski-jersey , Calif. (AP) — on the wild card playoff game looming in the Bronx.They’re still finishing up the regular season in Orange County with an attention to all the little details that could make a difference in the postseason.Khris Davis hit his major league-leading 48th homer and the A’s locked up their winningest season in 16 years with a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.Jed Lowrie homered and drove in two runs for the A’s (97-64), who hadn’t won 97 games since going 103-59 in 2002. Oakland has made a stunning turnaround from losing at least 87 games in each of the past three seasons.“It means we’ve had a nice year, and we’ve had quite a run since the middle of June,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “Ninety-seven is a nice number, especially after what we’ve been through the last three years.”A majors-best 42-22 since the All-Star break, the A’s are already locked into a trip to New York on Wednesday night to face the Yankees. But while they prepare mentally for that one-game showdown on arguably baseball’s biggest stage, the A’s are taking care of the final bits of remaining business in September — including a chance to preview a possible pitching strategy for the Yankees.Liam Hendriks pitched the first inning, allowing one single, before Trevor Cahill (7-4) threw four innings of one-hit ball for the A’s. Hendriks also could start Wednesday, depending on how Melvin decides to approach the one-game playoff.“It’s different, but I feel like I didn’t change too much about what I do,” Cahill said. “We’re going out and trying to win games. We’re all thinking about New York Ted Williams Jersey , but we’re all trying to play well and work on some things, too. We’re excited the regular season is over, and more excited the postseason is going to start.”Davis connected in the first off Tyler Skaggs (8-10), driving a two-run shot for his ninth homer in September and his fifth in seven games. The 30-year-old slugger matched Jimmie Foxx’s 48 homers in 1933 for the fourth-most in a single season in A’s history.Davis, who was born in nearby Lakewood and played a few miles away at Cal State Fullerton, also drove in his 122nd and 123rd runs.“It’s just a number,” Davis said. “I don’t keep score. I play and try to get as many as I can. I basically just try to keep getting better.”After driving in a run with a sacrifice fly in the third, Lowrie got his 23rd homer on Angels reliever Jim Johnson’s first pitch in the sixth, giving him 99 RBIs.Davis and Lowrie both seem likely to get one more day to add to their impressive regular seasons in Sunday’s finale.“That’s the balance right now,” Melvin said. “We want to get some guys some rest, but you also want to take care of some milestones, too.”Blake Treinen got pinch-hitter Eric Young Jr. on a groundout with two runners on in the ninth to secure his 38th save.FALLEN ANGELSKaleb Cowart had an RBI single for the Angels Jim Rice Jersey , whose four-game winning streak ended with a landmark loss.The Halos (79-82) are guaranteed to finish with three consecutive losing records for the first time under manager Mike Scioscia, who hasn’t announced whether his 19-year tenure is over.Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Justin Upton each went 0 for 4 for the Angels, who have made the playoffs just once since 2009 despite their annually bulky payroll. The club hadn’t had three straight losing seasons since 1992-94.“We got behind quickly and didn’t get much going until later,” Scioscia said. “We talked to the guys about making sure we finish hard this weekend. The quest for a championship doesn’t start in the spring. It starts now.”SCIOSCIA’S FAREWELL?Although Scioscia has steadfastly refused to confirm reports that he won’t be back next year, the Angels essentially treated this game as a potential farewell: They gave away a bobblehead doll in his likeness and aired several video tributes to the winningest manager in franchise history. Scioscia led the Angels to their only World Series championship in 2002, but the Halos haven’t won a playoff game in nine years.When asked after the game if he had noticed the tribute videos, Scioscia claimed he had not.TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: Melvin is unlikely to play many of his regular position players for full games in the season finale, giving them ample rest before Wednesday.Angels: RHP Felix Pena won’t take his rotation turn for the series finale because he’s already pitched much more than expected this season. The former reliever will rest after seizing a chance to pitch in the Halos’ injury-ravaged rotation and posting a 4.18 ERA in 17 starts and 92 2/3 innings.UP NEXTAthletics: Brett Anderson (4-5, 4.42 ERA) is likely to make his fourth start since returning from the disabled list. He has a 3.69 ERA since the All-Star break.Angels: Matt Shoemaker (2-2, 4.82 ERA) makes his seventh start of the season. He missed 134 games over five months with a right forearm strain, but has returned in solid form for September. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jorge Lopez was so calm on the mound that Royals catcher Salvador Perez didn’t even realize the rookie had a perfect game going until the late innings.The right-hander came within three outs of perfection before Max Kepler walked leading off the ninth and Robbie Grossman followed with a single in Kansas City’s 4-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night.“I was so close and I think my heart accelerated a little bit http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-nomar-garciaparra-jersey ,” Lopez said.The 25-year-old made just his seventh big league start, his fifth for Kansas City since he was acquired from Milwaukee in the late-July trade that sent Mike Moustakas to the Brewers.Lopez (2-4) retired his first 24 batters before walking Kepler on a 3-1 fastball. Grossman then smacked a clean single to center field on a 1-2 changeup.“It was the first time he had to go to the stretch the whole game,” Grossman said. “He made some quality pitches against me. I just got enough of the last changeup and hit it up the middle, and luckily missed his glove.”Lopez was removed after 110 pitches, 11 more than his previous high.Ehire Adrianza hit a sacrifice fly off Wily Peralta, who retired Joe Mauer and Jorge Polanco on flyouts for his ninth save, completing the one-hitter.Lopez struck out four and went to five three-ball counts before the walk, including his first three batters of the game.“Last inning was when I got all the emotion,” Lopez said. “I should have not thought about it, like, ‘Let’s just get another inning.’ But that’s experience from what we learned, and next time it will help get another win for the team.”His perfect-game bid was preserved when Jorge Polanco’s fourth-inning liner was caught by right fielder Jorge Bonifacio with a jump in front of the warning track Christian Vazquez Jersey , and when Jake Cave’s liner was snagged by left fielder Alex Gordon with a sliding grab in the fifth.“Gordy saw the ball, looked at (center fielder Brian) Goodwin and looked back up and couldn’t find the ball,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He was like, ‘I’m just going to run and hope I find it again,’ and he did and made the catch. When he told me that I was like, ‘OK, this might be one of those nights.'”Lopez was trying to become the second pitcher since at least 1900 to throw a perfect game within his first 10 major league starts. Charles Robertson was perfect in his fourth start with the Chicago White Sox in 1922.Kansas City has never thrown a perfect game and there haven’t been any in the majors since Seattle’s Felix Hernandez threw the 23rd in history, against Tampa Bay on Aug. 15, 2012. The gap between perfect games is the longest since Catfish Hunter’s for Oakland against the Twins in 1968 and Len Barker’s for Cleveland versus Toronto in 1981.Bret Saberhagen pitched Kansas City’s most recent no-hitter, against the Chicago White Sox in 1991. There have been three no-hitters in the major leagues this year, by Oakland’s Sean Manaea, Seattle’s James Paxton and a combined effort by four Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers.Hunter Dozier hit an RBI single in the sixth off Jose Berrios (11-11) http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-fred-lynn-jersey , who gave up one run and three hits in six innings.Whit Merrifield had a run-scoring single in a three-run seventh off Tyler Duffey and scored on Adalberto Mondesi’s double. Gordon added an RBI single against Andrew Vasquez.“I just sat there; I didn’t want to move,” Yost said. “My heart started pounding I think in about the eighth inning. When we scored those runs it made me feel better. Really wanted to get the fifth run there to try and give us a little more leeway in that situation going into the ninth.”RUNNING OUT OF TIMEMinnesota moved closer to elimination from the AL Central race. Cleveland’s magic number is five for clinching a third consecutive division crown.BERRIOS BOUNCES BACKBerrios was winless with a 6.56 ERA in his previous five starts, with 13 walks in 21 2/3 innings. After making his first career All-Star appearance, the right-hander had gone 2-3 with a 4.69 ERA in eight starts since the break. “We talked about the mental aspect of the game and I thought he was in a good place,” Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said. “I thought he was in attack mode for the most part.”TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: An MRI cleared 3B Miguel Sano of any issues with his sore leg stemming from a slide into second base last week. Molitor hopes Sano could be ready to return in the next couple of days. … 1B-DH Tyler Austin (back) is out for the weekend series, but Molitor hopes the former Yankees prospect is able to return next week when New York comes to town. “Maybe the Yankees will be a little bit of motivation for him,” Molitor said.UP NEXTRoyals: RHP Ian Kennedy (1-8, 5.13 ERA) will be activated from the disabled list to start Sunday’s series finale. Kennedy has been out since July 10 with a left oblique strain.Twins: RHP Chase De Jong will make his first major league start of 2018 and his first for Minnesota since he was acquired from Seattle on July 30 in a trade that sent left-handed reliever Zach Duke to the Mariners. De Jong was 0-3 with a 6.35 ERA in seven games for Seattle in 2017.
