The Oakland A’s, bitten by the injury bug, need to lean on starting pitcher Sonny Gray even more than expected.
In one productive day, Athletics general manager Billy Beane filled two important pitching voids.
After matching Tigers ace Justin Verlander pitch for pitch in Game 2, Gray could not repeat the feat in Game 5. It sounds like an injury, perhaps a rather serious one, is part of the reason why.
Verlander pitched eight scoreless innings, sealing Oakland’s fate and sending the Tigers hurtling into the ALCS.
