Major League Baseball’s replay review system continues to be an embarrassment to the sport, but the Oakland A’s didn’t let it stop them from hopping back into the win column on Monday https://www.oaklandfanstoreonline.com/Elvis_Andrus_Hoodie-173.The A’s held on for a tight 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, despite having a third run taken away on another botched replay call. Catcher Sean Murphy led the way for the green-and-gold, driving in both runs and providing sparkling defensive work behind the plate, and Oakland has now won 14 of their last 15 contests after snapping a 13-game win streak on Sunday.Click here to revisit today’s Game Thread! The evening began as a pitching duel between two lefty starters. Sean Manaea gutted through five innings for the A’s, and Rich Hill completed six for the Rays, striking out 16 batters between them. But both of them blinked once, and Hill’s mistake proved more costly.Tampa Bay got their run right away https://www.oaklandfanstoreonline.com/Ramon_Laureano_Pillow_Cover-449. Randy Arozarena singled to lead off the 1st inning, then moved to second base on a groundout, then stole third, and then came home on a sac fly. But that sentence sells the sequence short, as the groundout and the sac fly were both notable. The fly was arguably the best piece of contact of the game and could just as easily have been a double if it hadn’t gone straight at a fielder. On the other hand, the groundout also might have been a double play, if it hadn’t drilled Manaea on the way up the middle and the 105 mph rocket to the calf could have hurt the southpaw, but fortunately didn’t.
