Calif. Marcus Semien didn’t have much time to think after making a diving stop on Salvador Perez’s Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey sharp grounder in the eighth inning. With Kansas City’s Whit Merrifield off third base and breaking for home, the Oakland shortstop had no one choice but to throw to the plate.

It worked out perfectly for both Semien and the A’s.

Chapman made a great swing but that swing doesn’t get us the win if Marcus doesn’t make that play, Treinen said. We were trying to call a sinker there because (Perez) swung through a good one down the pitch before. High percentage groundball/swing-and-miss pitch and he put a pretty good swing on it. Marcus made a better play.

For the time being, the Angels are focusing on Ohtani’s treatment plan with the hope that he will be able to resume a throwing progression and return to action. How the organization decides to proceed if Ohtani struggles when he tries to throw is something that can wait.

Sure, Clayton Richard has thought about Eddie George Youth Jersey throwing the first no-hitter in Padres’ history.

He gave it good try Sunday.

Richard became the latest San Diego pitcher to flirt with a no-hitter, losing his bid with two outs in the seventh inning during a 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins.

You look at ifs, whats, and maybes, it’s not worth it, Richard said. It’s part of the game.

When assessing managers, I’m always reminded of a quote attributed to Yogi Berra: It ain’t like football. You can’t make up no trick plays. It does help, however, to make sure your team bats in the correct order.
