Wading Towards a Gem

This series against the cellar-dwelling Athletics has been much more difficult than it should have been. The first game was an extra-innings victory, the middle game a rout for the home team, and this game a taut pitchers’ gem.

Wade Miley held Oakland scoreless. He overcame the leadoff man reaching base four times, including a leadoff triple by Marcus Semien in the third.

Coco Crisp reached base without an out two times. He worked a walk in the first inning. In the fifth inning he tallied his first hit of the season and bowed when the crowd cheered for the long-awaited event. What he hasn’t done with his bat he has made up for with his glove.

Daniel Nava was Miley’s favorite batter. He singled in Hanley Ramirez in the second inning.

Six long innings later Nava sent a ground ball single up the middle. Dustin Pedroia followed with a single to Semien. In his haste the shortstop sent the ball into the stands. This is quite the accomplishment considering the size of Coliseum’s foul territory.

Next up are the Seattle Mariners. They sport a similar record to the Red Sox but significantly less is expected of them.
