The Athletics haven’t had much road experience this season yet, but they’re about to embark on quite the journey.
They’ll start things off in New York, against a Yankees team that has been a bit inconsistent through the first couple weeks of the season.
New York finally put an end to their 4 game losing streak, but things have been a bit concerning for them here early on. The Yankees inability to hit with runners in scoring position is something they certainly must fix.
The Yankees have gone 1 for their last 35 with runners in scoring position. They finally saw Alex Rodriguez put an end to his 0 for 19 streak as he blasted a 2 run home run to propel the Yankees to a 4-3 win on Sunday.
New York will send their ace out here in Michael Pineda. The Yankees number 1 has gone 1-1 with an inflated ERA of 6.55. Pineda allowed 3 runs in 6.0 innings, as he fell to the Blue Jays last time out. Pineda did certainly improve in terms of keeping the ball down though from his first start. The Yankees RH was tagged for 3 homers in the opener.
The Athletics played 10 of their first 13 games at home, getting very familiar with the O.Co. Coliseum. They now won’t see that stadium for the next 10 games as they embark on a 10 game road trip.
The good news for the A’s is that they start things off against the Yankees, a team they’ve had success against. Oakland has won 13 of their last 19 meetings against New York.
Oakland will throw Eric Surkamp here, who has given the A’s no length yet. He’s failed to reach 5.0 complete innings in his starts. The good news for him and the Athletics has been he hasn’t been knocked around by any means. Surkamp has permitted just 2 runs in each of his starts. Keep his pitch count down is a must here as the bullpen will certainly be taxed on this long road trip.
