Late inning defense. Joey, AJ, and Gentry is an upgrade over Kim, AJ, Smith/Trumbo. RHB.


Oakland loaded the bases on that bunt, then went on to score seven runs in a 12-5 victory.


The first two of those seven runs came on Daric Barton’s single. The third came when Gentry refused to stop running until the Houston defense proved it could handle the ball. It couldn’t. On an error by right fielder George Springer, Gentry scored all the way from first base.

Asked about the five errors he helped to force and the pressure he puts on teams, Gentry said, “that’s what I do. That’s my game. I’m not much use if I don’t.”

A’s manager Bob Melvin would argue the fact. Gentry can hit and plays a mean outfield, too, but the speed that Gentry displays is never far from the surface.

“He made me uncomfortable when he played for the Rangers,” Melvin said. “He’s here now and sometimes he still makes me uncomfortable.”
