Another Tungsten Arm ODoyle moment.
Ohtani continued his recent run of strong starts on the mound Thursday, giving up only two runs over six innings while striking out 11 Rangers -- his sixth straight outing with 10 or more strikeouts, one shy of Nolan Ryan's club record from 1977. Still, the Halos failed to score in a 2-0 defeat, after which Ohtani offered some thoughts on the trade speculation.
Yeah, the Astros recent performance against the A's is frustrating. 1-5 in their last 6 games against them IIRC.
Whatever you have to tell yourself.Yeah, the Astros recent performance against the A's is frustrating. 1-5 in their last 6 games against them IIRC.
But if you have to stink against a particular team, do it against a team in last place, that won't play into any tie breaker scenario.
Win the season series against a team you might tie in the playoff seeding? YES. Lose it against a team 16 games out of first place? That's okay.
