Dan Johnson laughed when told, adding, "That's being nice."
"I've never seen anything like it or heard about something like
that," Johnson said. "No matter what you do, there's 15 guys in the field. You hit it at them or you strike out. It's miserable."
It's been a whole lot less miserable for Johnson the last five games.
The A's sophomore first baseman had three hits Saturday, hit a
game-tying double in the ninth inning off Rangers closer Francisco Cordero on Tuesday night, then hit a game-tying homer off Cordero in the ninth inning Wednesday.
"I had those three hits (Saturday) and I was starting to feel good
again," said Johnson, who was 4-for-11 in the three-game series in Texas.
"Then (Sunday) I had absolutely no clue. It was like I'd never played the game before. I wasn't in my normal swing.
"These past couple days, I've found myself back into the groove
where I'm seeing the ball -- instead of guessing and swinging. Hopefully I can keep that feeling for a while now."
Only Good Times Ahead For Johnson?
