Starter T.J. Walz is my player of the day: Allowed just 1 run, 4 Hits, 0 Walks and struck out 5 over 6 innings of work.

3B Tony Thompson, btw, now has 5 errors in 8 games. Do the A’s have a minor league infield coach?

Suggestion: How about a daily A’s Minor Team Games thread – to post comments as games are ongoing (like the daily thread on AN for tha A’s)? (One thread – not an individual thread for each team.)
