Sports Night: A’s start winning streak

A’s: Two wins? Call it a streak

The A’s took the final two games of their trip, including Sunday’s 7-2 win over Tampa Bay behind starter Sonny Gray, then flew home for a Memorial Day game against the Detroit Tigers. Gray’s day was limited to just five innings thanks to a shot hit off his right ankle in the fourth inning by the Rays’ James Loney.

Furillo: Zito’s not finished, yet

These days, Barry Zito pitches for the Nashville Sounds of the Pacific Coast League. He’s expected to start Tuesday night when the Sounds, an A’s affiliate, play the River Cats at Raley Field. Sure, time may be catching up to him at 37, but many have pitched beyond that.

Giants: Rocky Mountain low

After Nori Aoki’s single on the first pitch of the game, the Giants go seven innings between hits against the Rockies’ Chad Bettis, as he deals for 81/3 innings in leading Colorado to an 11-2 victory and a split of the four-game series.
