Did the A’s forget their bats?
Sure, Kenny Rogers is on a roll, but the A’s just didn’t seem to be taking good at-bats and they are on the verge of going down 0-3 in this best-of-seven series.
I did get to cover Boston’s epic comeback from 0-3 against the Yankees in 2004, but that seemed different. In that case, the Red Sox were mystified as to why they were in that position in the first place. They felt they were a better team and ultimately they proved it.
The A’s don’t seem to share that sense of disbelief. The Tigers are doing all the things you need to do to win this time of year. Solid starting pitching, timely hitting, execution, strong defense. Jim Leyland‘s crew has it all covered.
Maybe the A’s will ultimately show some life in this series, but I’m not seeing it.
