Athletics Vs. Orioles, Game 2 Final Score: Oakland Suffers Brutal 10-1 Loss

On Friday, the Oakland Athletics were able to kick off their road trip with a win over the Baltimore Orioles. They did not fare nearly as well on Saturday, however, as the O's evened the series by demolishing the Oakland squad by a final score of 10-1.

Oakland starter Tyson Ross was hit hard right from the outset, as the Orioles piled on five runs in the bottom of the second inning, although all on singles and a sacrifice fly. They would stretch their lead to 6-0 in the bottom of the third on an RBI double and Ross was pulled after the fourth inning. The Baltimore hits kept on coming, however, as they tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the fifth.

The A's were in danger of being shut out 9-0 when Jonny Gomes hit a solo home run in the top of the sixth to cut the lead to 9-1, but the Orioles got that run back in the bottom of the seventh on a Chris Davis homer.

Oakland will still have a chance to pull of the series win as they attempt to take the rubber game on Sunday.
