If somebody doesn’t find a way to stop the San Francisco Giants from the demolishing pace they are in right now, then we could be looking at the most dominant team in baseball this season, but if there’s a team that has historically proven to baseball fans all around that they have no problems bringing the fight to anyone it’s the Oakland A’s. With the A’s looking at the chance to leave the bay with a win under their belt against their state rivals, it will be RHP Paul Blackburn who will be looking to score his third win of the season starting for the A’s as he faces LHP Sam Long, who after two starts in the season without any decision will be looking to make this game his first win of the year.
Let’s do a quick rundown here of everything the San Francisco Giants can do that automatically makes them such a feared squad around not just the National League but all of MLB. Can the Giants hit? Stats point out to yes. Can they score? With 91 runs batted in for the season, which leads the league, it’s a clear yes here too. How about their pitching? It’s just as good as their offense and defense with their rotation and bullpen being right up there in the standings for best in the league this season. So if there’s any doubt left about what this team can do, just watch them in action and you’ll see.
After taking the top spot in the NL West and beating the A’s by 8-2 following a great outing from pitcher Carlos Rodón, the Giants want to continue putting everyone in the baseball world on notice that they are the team to fear this season, or at least one of them as they hope that with a strong outing from pitcher Sam Long and their offensive weapons all doing their part they will be riding high with another win against Oakland to sweep the series.
The A’s know how important a win against San Francisco is. They probably knew it yesterday too but San Francisco is not that keen on losing, but tonight, Oakland will be out and about once again in the Bay to try and even out their interleague series with San Francisco and collect a win that would put them over .500 in the wins percentage for the season. The A’s have looked as good as they’ve looked faulty throughout the season, which automatically has led fans to ask themselves which version of the team they will see in each game.
Tonight though, if pitcher Sam Long focuses on pitching some seriously good baseball and Oakland’s defense can stand San Francisco’s heat and pressure, the A’s could be in for a very positive surprise.
