    A’s starter Jarrod Parker nearly pitched his way around a one-out double from the Tigers’ Omar Infante in the bottom of the third inning of this ALDS Game 1, but the Oakland right-hander misplayed a Quintin Berry slow-roller near the first base bag and the potential third out turned into Detroit’s go-ahead score when Infante…

    The leadoff men are the stars so far in Game 1. Tigers ace Justin Verlander allowed a solo homer to Coco Crisp in the very top of the first inning, then issued a one-out walk to Yoenis Cespedes before escaping the frame with back-to-back strikeouts of Brandon Moss and Josh Reddick. Verlander is no stranger…

  7. A’s pick rookie Jarrod Parker to start Game 1 against Tigers

    Jarrod Parker AP

    Fittingly for a team that has relied so heavily on rookie pitchers all season the A’s have picked the youngest starter on the staff, 23-year-old Jarrod Parker, to take the mound in Game 1 of the ALDS against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. Parker, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks as part of the Trevor…

    By losing 4-1 to the Rays, the Orioles settled things in the American League playoff picture this evening. The Yankees will face the wild card winner, either the Orioles or Rangers, in one ALDS and the A’s will get the Tigers in the other. The Orioles will travel to Texas to play a one-game playoff…

  9. A’s ride the backs of Balfour, Cook, Doolittle

    Grant Balfour

    For the A’s, it’s as easy as B, C, D In sweeping the Rangers to win the AL West this week, the A’s had Grant Balfour, Ryan Cook and Sean Doolittle pitch the final three innings of all three games. They didn’t go in that order — Balfour had the ninth, while the other two…

    I’m as sick of “Moneyball” mentions as anyone by now–A’s rookie Jarrod Parker was 14 years old when the book came out, after all–but this tweet from the movie’s co-star, Jonah Hill, was amusing: If the Oakland A’s go all the way this year Pitt and I better get rings. — Jonah Hill (@JonahHill) October…

  11. A’s beat Rangers to clinch berth, eliminate Angels, Rays from contention

    The A’s are going back to the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

    The Yankees and Orioles kept rolling tonight, maintaining one game of separation in the AL East. The Yankees beat the A’s 2-1 in 10 innings on a Russell Martin home run. Rafael Soriano blew a 1-0 lead in the top of the ninth by serving up a home run on a slider to Brandon Moss,…

  13. Ichiro singles into Jarrod Parker’s shirt

    Jarrod Parker

    When you’re hot, everything turns into a hit. Ichiro Suzuki had his one-hopper up the middle drop into Jarrod Parker‘s shirt for an infield single Friday night in the game against the A’s. Here’s the video. It was Ichiro’s 10th hit in his last 13 at-bats. One would think a ball would have been much…

  14. A’s rule out Brett Anderson for regular season

    Sep 20, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Brett Anderson

    It was a given that Brett Anderson would miss at least one start after suffering a strained right oblique during his outing Wednesday, but manager Bob Melvin dropped the bad news Thursday that the left-hander was done for at least the regular season. Anderson entered Wednesday’s outing 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA in five starts…

    Sep 15, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    Derek Norris Getty

    The Yankees lost 6-4 to the Rays last night, so the Orioles had yet another chance to gain sole possession of first-place in the American League East. They failed to make it happen. In front of a packed house at O.co Coliseum, the Athletics topped the Orioles 3-2 last night. Yes, the Orioles actually lost…

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

    Craig Breslow, Miguel Montero

    It won’t grab many headlines, but the Red Sox and Diamondbacks have made an interesting swap with left-handed reliever Craig Breslow going to Boston and outfielder Scott Podsednik and right-handed reliever Matt Albers going to Arizona. Breslow, who was acquired by Arizona from Oakland this offseason in the Trevor Cahill/Jarrod Parker/Ryan Cook swap, has a…

    UPDATE: A deal could still happen, but if it does, Justin Upton will NOT be involved. 3:22 AM: That’s the word from FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. He doesn’t know who it is they’re targeting, but he believes they might be willing to use Justin Upton and/or a top pitching prospect to get it done. There’s maybe only…

    The Pirates made Daniel Moskos the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft, selecting him ahead of Matt Wieters, Jarrod Parker, Madison Bumgarner and Jason Heyward, among others. Five years and 24 1/3 major league innings later, he’s now a member of the White Sox organization after being claimed off waivers. The selection of Moskos…

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

    Thanks to a league ruling restoring a certain Angel’s eligibility, the AL Rookie of the Year race is pretty much a batter for second place. But what a battle it might be. The candidates: Mike Trout (LAA): .340/.396/.552, 10 HR, 36 RBI, 22 SB in 241 AB Will Middlebrooks (Bos): .298/.335/.538, 10 HR, 37 RBI,…

    Rays 4, Yankees 3: Mark Teixeira committed his first error of the season, which allowed in the go ahead run. Hey, he’s allowed one bad day, right? All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That’s how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.…

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 3, Dodgers 0: The season nadir for the Dodgers who got swept by their arch rivals in three straight shutouts and lost their lead in the division. And, to add insult to injury, Andre Ethier got hurt. Wait, that’s adding injury to insult I suppose. Ah, you know what I mean. Oh, and Timmay…

  25. Oakland’s three-Brandon infield has a weak debut

    Spot the Brandons

    The A’s today tried playing Brandon Moss at first, Brandon Hicks at second and Brandon Inge at third. And they got a win anyway. Of course, the Brandons didn’t really contribute, combining to go 0-for-9 with five strikeouts. Inge also committed an error. Jarrod Parker was able to overcome it all, though, stirking out nine…
