When your team’s hit total for a game is equal to its opponent’s home run total, you’re gonna have a bad time.
That happened on Tuesday night, as the Oakland Athletics pitched batting practice for the Minnesota Twins. Five Twins hit homers, including Brian Dozier, who hit two. Four Twins finished the game with more RBIs than the entire Athletics team, and only Yonder Alonso’s solo shot in the ninth prevented Oakland from getting shut out.
The Athletics have now dropped seven out of the past eight games after having won five straight prior to their troubles.

The A’s stink and they’re boring. They’ll look to win their first one in a while on Wednesday night as they take on the Twins again.
