Bittersweet day for A's

The A's took care of business Tuesday evening by defeating the Dodgers 10-1, but also watched the Blue Jays clinch the division championship on an adjacent field. The A's record now stands at 16-4 with one game to play.

Chris started the game on the mound for the A's and gave up just one run on two hits while striking out a pair through three innings.

Matt opened the A's bottom of the second with a single. One out later Anthony stroked a single to left. Kyle was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Beau then hit a hard grounder to short, but an errant throw to first allowed two runs to score.

Adam walked and Sean followed with a double to center driving in two more. Trevor continued the rally with the fourth hit of the inning that drove in Sean.

The A's added three more runs in the third inning. With one down Anthony and Corbin singled. Then with two outs Beau ripped a triple down the third base line driving in two. Benji followed with a single the scored Beau.

Corbin capped the scoring for the A's with his first home run of the season leading off the 5th inning.

Matt was called in to pitch for the A's and held the Dodgers scoreless through the final three innings while fanning three.

Matt had the support of some solid A's defense. Anthony made a nice running catch of a fly ball in center, and Benji cleanly fielded two sharply hit balls at second in the final inning.
