Slap Hitter: Ugliest A’s Loss in Years, Not that You’d Know

Brutal extra-inning choke job by the Green and Gold yesterday. With a chance to pull within 2 1/2 games of the division leading Seattle Mariners, the A’s coughed up a one-run lead in the ninth only to gag on a three-run advantage in the 13th. If you want to feel the feeling, the best Athletics website has the gory reaction. It was that bad. The coverage in the San Francisco Chronicle was somehow worse.
