Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick slugged three home runs in five at-bats last night against the Blue Jays last night as his team went on to an easy 14-6 victory. Reddick entered the game with five home runs on the season and hadn’t homered since July 22.

Reddick’s offensive surge continued this afternoon. He took Jays starter Mark Buehrle deep for a two-run shot in the second, tying the game at two apiece. Then, with his team trailing 5-3 to open the top of the ninth against Jays closer Casey Janssen, Reddick went deep to right field again for a solo homer, bringing his team within a run at 5-4. Janssen, however, was able to dance around two additional base runners before converting the save.

    Reddick must have been eating his Wheaties. I can think of no other explanation.

    For the Jays, Bautista hit his 27th in the first inning. He was 3 for 4. Reyes hit what proved to be the game winning home run in the 7th.

    You guys obviously haven’t seen him with his hat off. He got his hair did!

    The new Don Draper look obviously has him popping off.

      Plausible, but I still prefer the Breakfast Of Champions explanation.

        Of course, of course, Eliot Rosewater was a modern saint (God Bless the Firemen) and Rabo Karabekian may have been a minimalist – but he had options.

        Lest your puppet master yank on a particularly delicate string. My deepest sympathies.

        Is Mike Trout related to Kilgore?

    I see that the thumb harpie is busy. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Happy Herbie for his efforts today.

    5 HRs in 2 games is insane… nice work by Reddick

  6. nbjays - Aug 10, 2013 at 10:59 PM

    No kidding! He doubled his season HR total from 5 to 10 in the space of 2 games. Unreal!
