OAKLAND – It was as if the Coliseum were jumping into a time machine set in the early 2000s. The stadium was full, even Mount Davis, and the A & # 39; s treated the rough home team with a finish that frenzied them.
On a night in which Mount Davis was reopened to the public for the first time in 13 years, 56,310 fans filled the house to set the record for the biggest crowd of all time in the Coliseum MLB game this season to see Jonathan Lucroy Walk it off for a 4-3 win over the Giants in 11 innings Saturday night.
Matt Chapman and Chad Pinder started the two-rally rally in the 11th with individual competitions against Will Smith and set up Lucroy's single-to-right field to win Chapman for the win.
A rare all-star blanker, Blake Treinen, provided another automatic win. He needed another punch to take the game out of the game and Hinden Pence gave a double strike in the right-hand field line, which scored Alen Hanson all the way from first base to goal-scoring
As they have done so often this season, the patience of the A and the ability to make a jug have paid off.
Madison Bumgarner drove through four innings, but the A & # 39; s got him pitching 28 pitches in the fifth inning, including a pair of eight pitch-walks by Chad Pinder and Marcus Semien. The left-hander landed in the inning in two runs before being pulled out of play.
Cahill entered the season this season with a .64 ERA in four starts at the Coliseum and continued his impressive run at home by just keeping the Giants one run with two hits and three walks and five over 5 2 / 3 innings grazed the work.
