Sports Night: Seventh(-inning) heaven? Not for A’s

A’s: Beware the seventh inning

Entering Saturday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox, the A’s had allowed 35 runs – 30 of them earned – in the seventh inning. Oakland’s beleaguered bullpen gives up two more runs – yes, in the seventh inning – in a 4-3 defeat.

Giants: Crawford slams, Pence returns

The good news: Brandon Crawford hits a grand slam and drives in a career-high six runs in the Giants’ 11-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The better news: Hunter Pence scores three times in his return from a broken forearm. The defending World Series champions hope their offense gets a boost from Pence’s return.

River Cats: Just what is an Isotope?
