Around the Majors, 4-28

And in case anyone still cares, the As just walked off when Machado threw away a bunt.

Cespedes hit a two-run HR to tie it in the bottom of the night. They got three big hits from Donaldson, Seth Smith, and then Cespedes. The last thing we need is for them to start getting those clutch hits. Although if we keep playing like we are it won't make a difference anyway.

Interesting note about Cespedes and the A's: They are 92-49(.652) when he plays and 16-31 (.340) when he doesn't since the start of last season. Not sure if that means anything but it's worth noting that on his first game back from the DL the A's were looking at being swept in a four game set at home. They were down 5-0 and pulled within one. Then they were down 6-4 and got a HR to tie it. Then their pitching gives up 2 more runs late but get the HR they need to tie it. Then they cap it with a walk-off, although that was more on the Orioles than the A's. Still, that's the type of persistence we just don't see out of the Halos.

Probably has a lot to do with whomever plays when Cespedes is out. I believe that's Chris Young.

Before Cespedes went to the DL Young had played from first pitch to last out in 8 of the A's 11 games. They were 8-0 during those games. It can't be Young. Plus, Cespedes was only hitting .200 before he went out.
