It’s been a bit of a backwards start for the teams facing off at Turner Field this week.
Aaron Hill and Cliff Pennington hit home runs in the first inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks held on to beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Friday night.
Cody Ross can see clearly now, so he must have had a nice view as his decisive pinch-hit home run sailed into the left-field seats.
If the A’s are going to make the playoffs again, it will be on the strength of their pitching. A.J. Griffin will be a big part of that.
