Brad Young got hit by a pitch lead off the fifth inning. TD Walker followed with a single and both moved up on Trevor Cho’s sacrifice bunt. Then came a fielder’s choice that got nobody out to load the bases, Tyler Agard’s groundouts drove in one and then Taylor Grimm delivered one of the game’s biggest hits, a double to knock in two more to put the A’s ahead 4-0. Cho’s double and Mitch Sutton’s base hit drove in two runs in the seventh and Dylan Detert’s base hit rounded out the scoring.
There were a mass of contributors to this win. In addition to Schwarz’s heroics, Detert had triple and two singles, Mitch Sutton and TD Walker two singles, Steldt with his home run and Grimm, Cho and Nate Heili all doubles.
