For a while now, I’ve been calling Kevin Brown a mother. But, today was mother’s day! Sweet fancy Moses – KB was not toying around out there this afternoon.
This makes it back-to-back victories for the Bronx Bombers. As you need to win two consecutive games at some point to start a winning streak, the “W” today is a beautiful thing.
This all said, prior to this series, I saw the following on the A’s in a report somewhere on the ‘net:
The A’s are batting just .241 as a team, with 19 home runs in 28 games. They have scored three runs or fewer 16 times.
Therefore, we have to wonder – at least a wee bit – was it us, or them, these past few games?
In any event, BTB wins will make going to work tomorrow AM somewhat easier and takes some of the sting out of the “I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ot the whole day down” Monday blues.
And, of course, Happy Mother’s Day! to all the moms out there. Holy cow! Where would we be without you?
