How Was The Game? (June 2, 2015)

More like last year. 

A’s 5, Tigers 3

Alfredo Simon (10 GS, 63.2 IP, 2.97 ERA, 3.57 FIP) didn’t really pitch well, but he probably deserved a better fate. He was wild, but got himself out of trouble on a couple of occasions and it all fell apart when he left the game. The Tigers finally put together a little offense in the 4th after giving away a chance with some bunts in the 3rd. Single, single, walk, single, double set up three runs, but unfortunately, it wouldn’t be enough. In the 7th, the A’s got three singles and a fielder’s choice against Simon and he left the bases loaded for Nesbitt and Zobrist. Zobrist hit a dinger and that’s all she wrote. Also, there was that thing when Kinsler threw home for no reason. That wasn’t fun. Anibal Sanchez (11 GS, 67.1 IP, 5.75 ERA, 4.29 FIP) will try to turn the luck around on Wednesday.
