It looked like the A’s were going to start this long home-stand by being swept by the Baltimore Orioles yesterday.
Ramón Laureano had other ideas. His incredible catch at the wall, followed up by the game-winning two-run bomb, was the very definition of a player who can be a game-winner all on his own. Although it made us miss being able to get to the Coliseum, it also made us remember how great it is to still be able to enjoy watching our team from afar during these difficult times.
“More please”, is the cry and the A’s will be happy to oblige with a week of home-games against two quality AL East opponents.
Monday to Thursday is “The Return of Marcus” series against the Blue Jays. The finale on Thursday is a day-game and also being shown on BT Sport/ESPN here in the UK.
We then welcome the Rays to the Coliseum for the weekend after our recent series at Tropicana Field. Saturday and Sunday are both 9.07pm starts here in the UK.
