The A's had an exciting game defensively, showing steady improvement in the outfield. Teamwork was the consistent theme of the day. Andy Barbee caught a grounder at center field and ran it to first base for the game's first out. John Balog had a busy position at right field for the first inning fielding grounders several times and sending the ball in to first or second base. It was a great display of quick thinking followed up with quick action. Jason Ko had a great game complete with the game ball. His best play occurred at center field when he stopped a fast grounder and ran it home for an out. The crowd cheered. Emmett Pernecky caught a ball at center field and ran it to first for an out. Amazingly he turned around and repeated the performance on the next play. Lenny Pieroni stopped a grounder at center field and sent it flying to first for an almost out. The A's had some great plays at bat as well. Matthew Scarsi Powered the ball far into left field for the day's only triple. Brent Ellis and Matthew Winnek both had great hits at bat, making good contact with the ball and getting RBIs on every at bat turn. Marc Morreale hit a solid ball far into left field twice for easy firsts.
