Streaking Athletics Proving Last Year No Fluke
The Oakland Athletics have moved to four games above 500 and have moved into second place from last place now sitting six and a half games being the Houston Astors.
The Athletics have outscored their opponents 78-31 during the streak. The team The A’s have used the long ball with 25 home runs hit over the ten game stretch.
Oakland outfielder Ramón Laureano is streaking as well with a ten game hitting streak, hitting .359 during the stretch. The previously struggling slugger Matt Chapman has homered in three consecutive games.
The A’s have not lost since May 14 after a 4-3 defeat the hands of the Seattle Mariners. Oakland’s streak has come at the expense of the Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians, and Seattle Mariners. The most recent victory against the Los Angeles Angels. All four clubs are below 500 on the season.
Oakland will look to continue their streak with two more games this week against the Angels and a three-game set against the first place Astros all at home.
