At least the Rays lost to the Orioles on Sunday. That doesn’t change the fact that the A’s missed a nice opportunity last weekend against the Giants.
They swept the Yankees in three and then dropped two to San Fran. The bullpen blew it on Saturday; it was only part of the problem on Sunday.
Brett Anderson left with a one-run lead after another quality start. Jake Diekman came in and couldn’t get it done. Blake Treinen did and the defense let him down.
Diekman’s runner scored, as did the go-ahead run, charged to the defense, in a two-run seventh. Oakland had four runs on the board by the end of the fourth but went quietly after that, 5–4.
So the Rays remain a game-and-a-half ahead going into Monday.
This one should be Mike Fiers’ turn but he hasn’t been listed yet. He hasn’t missed a start this season.
Kansas City Royals
He’ll oppose Mike Montgomery, who came over in July from the White Sox, for whom he was coming out of the bullpen. The Royals have made him a starter and have so far got a mixed bag of results.
Two of his three starts in July weren’t good and he gave up one run in five innings in the other. He’s been better here in August, though.
In four starts, he’s covered 23 innings and given up just seven earned runs, five of which came in his last outing at Baltimore.
Earlier, he threw the game of his life in Detroit, striking out twelve and walking none in seven innings.
Let’s not overlook the Royals. They just went to Cleveland and didn’t get swept. They’ll probably get at least one of these games too.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: under.
Fiers will get some Cy Young votes this year. He’s been excellent but I believe Montgomery will do his share in limiting the A’s. I’m thinking we get a total around of 8.5 or 9.0 and keep it under.
