A’s relievers ruin Frankie Montas’ night

Rumors are sending Frankie Montas away from Oakland in the coming weeks, and the Athletics pitcher certainly got more eyes as he got off to a great start in a 2-1 cause loss to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday at Oakland Coliseum. .

The 29-year-old right-hander went without a run or hit until the eighth inning. That’s when Adam Frazier and Luis Torrens joined the cushions with singles. Removed from the mound at the end of this turn at bat, Montas gave nothing more, he who walked two bases and made eight strikeouts.

However, the relievers ruined everything for the A’s. Zach Jackson (1-2) gave up two free passes, then AJ Puk did the same, in addition to allowing Dylan Moore to tie the game on an off-target shot.

With two men on base, Quebecer Abraham Toro had plenty of opportunity to put the Mariners in front. Another bad pitch from Puk sent Toro on the trails, while Jesse Winkler came in to score the winning point. The Longueuil native then stole second base, but the threat from the visitors ended there.

Christian Bethancourt drove in the A’s lone run on a first-inning single. From the second cushion, Sheldon Neuse was able to rally the plate.

Perfect on the mound in the last two sets, Diego Castillo (4-1) and Paul Sewald added a victory and a save respectively to their record.

Dodgers overtake Reds

At Great America Ball Park, the Los Angeles Dodgers enjoyed a good day at work from Freddie Freeman and Cody Bellinger to defeat the Cincinnati Reds 10-5.

The two players from the Californian club both drove in three runs. They also hit a home run each. Max Muncy and Will Smith also kicked the ball out of bounds for the winners.

On the mound, Clayton Kershaw (5-1) had a good outing. The starter allowed just one run on seven strikes from the safety net in six innings of work. The veteran also passed seven opposing batters in the mitt.

For the Reds, outfielder Tommy Pham drove in three runs on his 10th long ball of the campaign. The backhand was added to Gunner Hunter Greene’s record (3-8).
