Here’s to a great week!
Athletics 6, Indians 0
Adios Oakland. The A’s beat the Tribe again, using strong pitching and timely hitting to win the season series over Cleveland. With the loss, the Indians are now 49-39 on the year.
JRam, Brantley, Lindor, Kluber, and Bauer. Awesome and well-deserved!
Will Jose be in the HR Derby? From Jordan Bastian:
Ramirez — one of five All-Stars heading to Washington D.C. to represent the Tribe — has blossomed into one of the more surprising power hitters in the game. Often, when the stocky but solid third baseman is asked what led to his latest blast, he will simply say, “Home run pitch.”
Well, the Derby will have mucho home run pitches.
Told that, Ramirez laughed.
“Yeah, I’ll try, if I get the chance,” he said.
