Edwin Jackson has been one of the key contributors in Oakland’s most recent surge. He resurrected from the ashes and joined the club just a couple of weeks ago. Since, he’s made two starts and won them both resoundingly.
He went six innings in the first and got into the seventh the last time. He’s given up eight hits and three runs, combined, striking out 13 without yet walking a single batter. That’s just an old-timer knowing how to pitch.
That last start came against Cleveland in the Bay. Going against a lineup in back-to-back games is always a challenge and it doesn’t make it any easier that it’s the Indians, looking for revenge.
Jed Lowrie still leads this team with a 137 OPS+ but the A’s have gotten great offensive contributions from Matt Chapman and Matt Olson lately. If the surge continues, it’s going to be really hard for the front office to let Lowrie go.
Carlos Carrasco is starting Friday’s game for the first time in about a month so Terry Francona won’t likely push him much. That could mean Corey Kluber starts this game with a short-handed bullpen at the ready.
Such a circumstance doesn’t usually bother Kluber, who has failed to start the seventh inning just five times this season, though three of those instances have come in his last four outings.
After recording a pair of double-digit strikeout games in each of the first two months of the season, Kluber hasn’t notched one since. His ERA has climbed, from 1.99 to 2.64, since mid-June; as far as I’m concerned, that just means it’s time for it to go back down.
