A’s Split Sunday DH with Chicago; Take Three of Four Over the Weekend
Posted: May 29, 2022
Harry Steldt’s first home run of the season was the catalyst the A’s needed to jump out to a lead they would not relinquish in a 5-2 victory over Chicago in the final game of the two teams’ four-game weekend set. The A’s won three of the four matchups, losing the first game Sunday 11-8.
The A’s are now 6-2 and will have an off day Monday before traveling to Green Bay Tuesday for a matchup with the Blue Ribbons.
Four different A’s recorded multi-hit games in game one. Holding a 6-3 lead entering the sixth, the Rippers posted back-to-back four-run innings on the A’s bullpen to jump ahead 12-6. The A’s battled back in the bottom of the seventh, scoring two to cut the lead to 11-8 with the tying run at the plate. Jacob Neese hit a shot to deep left field that landed just a few feet short of a game-tying home run. Dylan Davis suffered the loss in relief.
Game two was a fast-paced game with Davis Wilson getting the start. He pitched six highly effective innings before giving way to Blake Kunz who picked up the save. Riley Palmquist and the versatile Brad Rindfleisch, who pitched a completed game the night before, each had two hits in the game.
The A’s next home game is Thursday, June 2 at 7:30 PM when West Allis comes to town for the annual Plymouth Dirt Track Night. Drivers and race cars from the Plymouth Dirt Track racing circuit will be at the park, showcasing their race cars in the parking lot pre-game for fans to see and take pictures with.
