Oakland A's Game #49: Exhausted A's fall 3-1 to Rockies

After playing five hours in those absurd conditions, they flew up to the mountains to take the field in the thin air of mile-high elevation, and with no off-day to adjust to the uniquest environment in the league.

Two batters later, Tony Kemp did exactly what the A’s needed by simply making contact with a runner on third and one out, lofting a sac fly to drive him home.

In the end, Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela notched his first career complete game, needing just 109 pitches to go the distance.

The inning began with an infield single, but it was made worse by a rare disconnect between shortstop Marcus Semien and first baseman Matt Olson .

Elias Diaz put a charge in one and lined it over the wall in the left field corner, for not only his first homer of the year but the first dinger by any Rockies catcher in 2020.

The lefty efficiently chewed through nearly six innings, missed a ton of bats (14.6% of his pitches), and racked up seven strikeouts to just one walk, all while minimizing hard contact.
