hoping for the best. I know he is a strong guy, so (27th Jun 19 at 8:03am UTC)
Jed Lowrie loves the feeling of coming through with a clutch hit late to lift his team http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/dre_mont-jones-jersey , and he just keeps showing a knack for it.

He is a big reason the A’s are rarely out of games even when down by a couple of runs.

The Oakland second baseman delivered his 12th game-winning RBI after filling in beautifully at third base during Matt Chapman’s absence, hitting a three-run double in the decisive sixth to help rally the Athletics past the San Diego Padres 6-2 on Tuesday night.

If that’s not enough to make Lowrie an All-Star for the first time in an 11-year career and at age 34, manager Bob Melvin might just throw his hands up in disbelief.

”It would be the icing on the cake. I feel like I’ve been close a couple times and haven’t been there,” Lowrie said. ”So that would be something I would always be able to say.”

Mark Canha added a solo homer in the sixth and Chad Pinder connected in the seventh.

The A’s finally got to San Diego starter Clayton Richard (7-8). Pinder walked to start the sixth as the first five hitters reached base. Khris Davis followed Lowrie’s double with a run-scoring single before Canha’s 11th home run, after a double play.

Emilio Pagan (2-0) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win in relief of A’s starter Chris Bassitt.

Chapman went 0 for 3 in his return from the disabled list after missing 16 games with a recurring right hand injury that began bothering him during the offseason. He had played in 149 straight games before the DL stint.

Wil Myers hit a run-scoring double in the fifth right after Eric Hosmer’s RBI groundout got the Padres on the board.

Bassitt, who has just one win in five starts since being called up last month, escaped jams in the first and third innings as the Padres stranded five baserunners. The A’s made a pair of forceouts at home in the third, including first baseman Matt Olson’s nifty throw after a backhanded stop.

Myers’ double chased Bassitt. He was tagged for two runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings, struck out six and walked three.

Richard allowed five runs and six hits, walked a season-high five batters over six innings and struck out two in his second straight defeat.

”Defense picked me up early in the game but that’s the story of it was just too many three-ball counts and then put too many guys on with the walk,” Richard said.

Oakland, which had its six-game winning streak snapped Sunday by Cleveland T.J. Hockenson Jersey , won for the 13th time in 16 games despite grounding into five double plays.

”As much as any team I’ve ever had, at least at this point, there’s no panic when we’re down,” the skipper said.

Leadoff hitter Travis Jankowski had three hits for San Diego, which will conclude the short two-game series Wednesday having played 23 of its last 28 away from Petco Park.

BIG MAC HONORED

Padres bench coach Mark McGwire, a former A’s slugger who spent his first 11 1/2 big league seasons in the East Bay before being traded to the Cardinals in 1997, was honored before the game as part of Oakland’s 50th anniversary season festivities in a ceremony at home plate with team President Dave Kaval. Big Mac received his green No. 25 commemorative A’s jersey and the Bash Brother tipped his cap to the cheering crowd.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Padres: RHP Jordan Lyles, scratched in the bottom of the first inning June 23 just before his scheduled start and on the DL with inflammation in his pitching elbow, played catch with the relievers and depending how he felt afterward the Padres would decide when he is ready to throw off a mound. … The Padres placed RHP Kirby Yates on the paternity list and recalled RHP Colten Brewer from Triple-A El Paso.

Athletics: RHP Trevor Cahill, who has an impingement in his throwing elbow, pitched in the Arizona League and is likely to make another rehab appearance Sunday or Monday before potentially joining the A’s in Houston early next week. … RHP Daniel Mengden (sprained right foot) threw a bullpen session and if all was OK by Wednesday the A’s planned to send him to Triple-A Nashville for a rehab assignment. … Oakland optioned INF Franklin Barreto to Nashville to clear roster room for Chapman’s return.

UP NEXT

Padres: RHP Luis Perdomo (1-2, 8.36 ERA) Justice Hill Jersey , a taxi squad player, will be called up Wednesday to make his fifth start of 2018.

Athletics: LHP Sean Manaea (8-6, 3.38) is coming off a masterful June during which he went 3-0 with a 2.84 ERA in five starts.



EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Getting a chance to watch Taysom Hill do his thing as the New Orleans Saints‘ multi-faceted third-string quarterback was enough to convince coach Pat Shurmur the New York Giants needed someone who could do that all this season.Shurmur may a found a possible solution in Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey, who was not drafted last week.The Giants signed Dungey to their 90-man roster Thursday as draft picks and rookies reported for a short minicamp.Having a Hill-type player is quickly becoming an NFL fad. The former BYU product was used as a runner, a passer, a receiver, a returner and a special teams’ guy this past season in helping the Saints reach the NFC title game.Against the Giants in a 33-18 win last season, Hill ran four times for 28 yards, threw a fourth-down pass out of a punt formation for 10 yards and a first down and handed off to Alvin Kamara out of a shotgun formation on a 9-yard touchdown run. His passing and running also contributed two field goals.“That was one of the things he talked to me about,” Dungey said Friday of his conversation with Shurmur after the draft.Dungey has a lot to offer. In 39 games for the Orange over the past four seasons, the Lake Oswego http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/ben-powers-jersey-cheap , Oregon, resident threw for 9,340 yards with 58 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. He also ran for 1,993 yards and 35 touchdowns.When the Giants released their roster for the camp, it wasn’t surprising the 6-foot-4, 226 pound Dungey was listed as a quarterback/tight end.Winning the quarterback job will be tough. Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is back, and New York chose Daniel Jones of Duke with the No. 6 pick overall last week. Kyle Lauletta, a fourth-round pick last year, also is on the roster along with veteran Alex Tanney.Dungey would have to start at No. 5 on the depth chart.“I just want to be able to compete, that’s what makes me the best,” Dungey said. “Daniel is a great quarterback but like I said, coach offered me an opportunity to play multiple positions and a chance to play quarterback. If I can do that and learn the offense to the best of my ability Iman Marshall Jersey , I am looking forward to doing everything I can to help out.”While excited about the opportunity, Dungey’s heart was torn Friday. He was thinking of his father, Tim.“He was just diagnosed with cancer yesterday,” Dungey said. “It’s been rough. We are just hoping for the best. I know he is a strong guy, so he is going to pull through.”Dungey said doctors found something in his father’s kidney and need to conduct more tests.“He is a huge part of my life,” Dungey said. “He has just made me the man I am today, and my mom. I always looked up to my dad growing up. He was someone who played football, basketball and baseball. He has just been a great role model. No matter what adversity he faces he always just cares about us and pushes through it.”Eric Dungey is taking a similar approach to the NFL. He knows as a free agent he can be cut at any time. He has to give it his best every second.“”I’m just kind of living in the moment,” Dungey said. “I am just kind of putting my nose down. I feel when I can look back on it I may be able to embrace it more. Right now, it’s just a job and I am trying to make a name for myself.”
