In a wild game, Oakland started off very slow. Oakland was getting hits and walks.m, but not when men were in scoring position. Toronto broke the scoreless game in the 5th in a big way. Urshela drove in a 2-run homer off of Manaea, who looked tired today tbh. Solarte and Pillar continued to drive in runs as Toronto rolled a 4 spot in the 5th.Stephen Piscotty would start Oakland's scoring in the 8th with a single, scoring Chapman. In the 8th inning, Oakland would have the bases loaded again. Chad Pinder worked the count and waited for his pitch. Pinder would crush a grand slam to deep left-center, giving Oakland a 5-4 lead and his first career grand slam. Toronto wouldn't give up, Toronto had a base runner in the bottom of the 9th, but Treinen worked his magic and secured his 10th save of the season. Oakland has taken the first 3 games in this four game set and is 6-3 on this road trip. Oakland improves to 24-22 after a wild comeback.

"Don't call it a comeback!" *LL Cool J voice* Lol! After being down 4-0 up to the 8th inning, my A's put up a 5 spot for the comeback, capped off by Pinder with a grand slam, and Treinen closed the game! Bash! #OaklandAthletics#LetsGoOakland#RootedInOakland
