Oakland was 6-9 with the baseball lines to begin the exhibition season. Andy LaRoche had a hot bat for the A’s with a .345 average and 2 doubles, 3 home runs, and 7 runs batted in. Coco Crisp was hitting .478 with 2 doubles, 2 home runs, and 8 runs batted in.
Gio Gonzalez was making quite an impression from the pitcher’s mound as he allowed just 1 earned run in 9.1 innings of work and struck out 13 batters.
