Kyle Seager Jersey

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Oakland Athletics kept getting hits and scoring runs Felix Hernandez Jersey , circling the bases in a display that manager Bob Melvin described as “remarkable.”Finally, deep into the third inning, Ramon Laureano hit a popup to the shortstop. A mock cheer swelled from the small crowd of 10,480 at Camden Yards.“I was like, ‘Ooh.’ I didn’t realize nobody had gotten out yet,” Oakland slugger Matt Olson said. Olson homered during a 10-run inning in which the first 11 batters reached base, and the Athletics blanked the Baltimore Orioles 10-0 Wednesday night. With their sixth straight victory, the A’s moved within one game of the Yankees for the top AL wild card. New York lost 3-1 at Minnesota.Oakland totaled 10 hits and two walks in its biggest inning of the year. Olson provided the big blow — a three-run shot off Andrew Cashner (4-15) — and three different players had two hits.“I don’t know if I’ve been a part of one of those,” Olson said. “It seemed like everybody was working the count and getting a good pitch and squaring it up.”Oakland sent 15 batters to the plate and generated more than enough offense to match its longest winning streak of the season. The A’s trail first-place Houston by three games in the AL West and own a comfortable lead for the second wild card. Daniel Mengden (7-6) pitched five innings of no-hit relief after entering in the second for starter Liam Hendriks, who went one inning by design.Baltimore’s lone hit was a clean single to left field in the first by Trey Mancini. The final 20 batters went down in order following a third-inning walk to Jace Peterson.“We didn’t hit anything hard Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey ,” manager Buck Showalter said. “Nothing to really put your arms around and feel proud of.”The A’s have already clinched their 10th series win in the last 13 (10-1-2) and will go for a three-game sweep of the woeful Orioles on Thursday night. After going a major league-best 34-15 since the All-Star break, Oakland is 32 games over .500 (89-57) for the first time since September 2003.Baltimore has lost six in a row to fall to 41-104, the worst record in the majors. It’s the eighth time this season the Orioles have been mired in a skid of at least six games.After breezing through the first two innings, Cashner never got another out. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Matt Chapman, who hit a two-run double.Jed Lowrie and Khris Davis followed with singles before Olson hit his 26th home run. Three singles and a walk followed before Cody Carroll retired Laureano.Chapman followed with an RBI single for the 10th run.“Pretty remarkable inning,” Melvin said. “You don’t see that happen very often. It was nice to be able to create a little distance.”There was one remaining moment of suspense. Needing a home run to complete the cycle in the ninth inning, Laureano looked at a called third strike.TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: Oakland has used the disabled list 26 times this season, compared to 23 last year. The club record is 27, set in 2016.Orioles: DH Mark Trumbo (knee surgery) and LHP Richard Bleier (lat surgery) dropped by the clubhouse, even though both are done for the year. The hope is that both will be available at the start of the 2019 season. “We like where it’s headed. Everything’s been fine Ken Griffey Jersey ,” Showalter said. “I wouldn’t commit that they’re both going to be there on opening day, but there’s a chance.”YOUTH IS SERVEDLeft fielder DJ Stewart became the 14th player to make his major league debut with Baltimore this season, tying the Orioles record set in 1955.The Orioles will start a pair of rookie pitchers in the upcoming series against the White Sox. Luis Ortiz — part of the haul in the July trade for Jonathan Schoop — makes his first major league start Friday night, and Yefry Ramirez will go Saturday.UP NEXTAthletics: LHP Brett Anderson (3-4, 4.02 ERA), who has a 6.55 ERA in two career starts against Baltimore, gets the ball in the series finale Thursday night.Orioles: Dylan Bundy (7-14, 5.58 ERA) looks for his first victory since July 29. He’s 0-5 in his last seven starts with 11 home runs allowed. The adage is almost as old as baseball itself: The route to winning a title is playing .500 ball against the best teams but beating up on the lesser-record teams.The Los Angeles Dodgers are getting part of the equation right. After defeating the first-place Colorado Rockies 9-6 on Sunday, they’re 9-7 against one of the teams they’re chasing for the National League West title and 7-9 against the other, the Arizona Diamondbacks.They’re also a combined 8-6 against the other two NL first-place clubs , going 5-2 against the Atlanta Braves and 3-4 against the Chicago Cubs. They’re 4-3 against the Milwaukee Brewers, who currently lead the NL wild-card standings.Article continues below ...Los Angeles took two of three in Denver despite being without closer Kenley Jansen (irregular heartbeat) to close to within one-half game of Colorado in the NL West. Justin Turner was 4-for-5 with three extra-base hits Sunday — a homer and two doubles — and Enrique Hernandez also homered.“We’re trying to chase those guys down,” Turner told the team’s website. “The bullpen answered the bell, we won the two games we had a lead. We scored runs, got into the other team’s bullpen in the third inning.”But the Dodgers, who open a three-game series against the last-place Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park on Monday night, aren’t entirely taking care of business against the teams that could give them a path to a sixth consecutive division.They’re 2-4 against the last-place Miami Marlins and 0-4 against the Reds, who swept them in a four-game series at Dodger Stadium on May 10-13 — arguably the highlight of the Reds’ season and the lowest point of the Dodgers’ season. Outside of that series, Cincinnati is 57-83 in 2018.If it weren’t for the San Diego Padres, who’ve dropped 12 of 16 to their southern California rivals Kyle Seager Jersey , the Dodgers would be having a frustratingly poor season against the teams they theoretically should be defeating.At least they’ll be sending a pitcher to the mound Monday night who knows how to beat the Reds, who’ve lost eight of 12 and 13 of 18. They lost 7-6 Sunday to the San Diego Padres in a game that didn’t end until almost 9 p.m. EDT because of a 92-minute rain delay.Left-hander Alex Wood (8-6) will be looking to improve to 4-0 in his career against the Reds, although he hasn’t faced them since June 6, 2017. In that game, he held the Reds to one run and four hits in eight innings before Jansen finished a 3-1 Dodgers win at Great American Ball Park.Overall, Wood is 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA in four career starts against Cincinnati, limiting their hitters to a .184 average. He will be pitching for the first time in a week, or since he didn’t figure in the decision as the Dodgers lost 4-2 to the New York Mets last Monday in Dodger Stadium. He allowed one run and five hits in five innings. Wood is 7-1 with a 2.39 ERA and a .229 opponents’ batting average in his last 13 starts. He’ll face left-hander Cody Reed (0-2), who is coming off a 7-3 loss Tuesday to the Pittsburgh Pirates in his first Reds start since April 9.Reed gave up six runs and nine hits in five innings in Pittsburgh after going 4-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 17 starts with Triple-A Louisville. This will be his 15th career start since debuting in the majors in 2016, a year after Cincinnati acquired him from the Kansas City Royals in the Jonny Cueto trade. The Reds are 0-14 in his previous starts.Reed , who is 1-10 with a 6.22 ERA in 35 career major league games, tried putting a positive spin on his most recent start.“I know that I’m jamming guys, I’m getting the ball in, working away, up and down,” Reed said. “I felt fine. I was throwing strikes, threw five (innings) and battled. I made it through five and tried to keep my game in it as much as I could.”The Dodgers haven’t played in Cincinnati since sweeping a three-game series there June 16-18, 2017, outscoring the Reds 21-10.
