The Oakland A’s beat The Giants 10-5 today in the Spring Training Opener at Scottsdale Stadium.
Winning pitcher for the A’s was Jesse Chavez our losing pitcher was Yusmeiro Petit.
Brandon Belt singled in the first but that produced nothing, in fact Belt hit the ball well today but was stranded more than once.
A’s batters shelled our pitching staff sadly resulting in 6 earned runs for Romo and 3 for Petit.
The Giants finally scored in the fourth but only after the damage was done.
Despite home-runs by Duvall and Adrianza we came up short against Oakland although I see some promise of great things to come from Michael Morse who was robbed of hits more than once today by Reddick.
Sandoval and Duval both putting wood on the ball with ADRIANZA coming up with the big at bat in the 9th inning. As exciting as it was, too little too late for today’s game.
Michael Morse is going to get us some hits this season, that is as long as Josh Reddick isn’t in the outfield!
I haven’t had the chance to see all the highlights from today’s game, but let me tell you something: Josh Reddick made some pretty neat catches while climbing the right field fence in Scottsdale to rob Michael Morse of at least six total bases, maybe even eight. First, watch the videos so can get a glimpse:
Now, watch on repeat the crazy grabs that Josh Reddick made. First, the prayer backhand stretch catch:
and the second, the “thank goodness I didn’t have to climb as high this time” grab:
No, those were not the same catches, even though I wasn’t sure when I first watched. Hopefully that kind of stuff only happens to the Giants in Spring Training and not in the regular season. I mean, the bullpen was already tired of this happening after the second catch:
Well done, Josh Reddick. Do that to everybody else but the Giants…
