The A’s had numerous chances today to extend their winning streak to five games, and get one game closer to the .500 mark. Unfortunately, as baseballgirl put it, this was a maddening and frustrating loss for the A’s:

If you like maddening, frustrating, leave-a-bad-taste-in-your-mouth games, this was a humdinger. Playing a bad team? Check. Aforementioned bad team gives you a crooked number of runs in one inning? Check. Your starting pitcher leaves with a two-run lead? Check. Things are lining up for a fifth win in a row? Check. Terrible team suddenly rebounds to the tune of five homeruns? Check. Said homeruns turn a sure win into a horrible loss? Check…and…check.
