Happy Zack de Mayo day!
After starting the season in the bullpen Mark Cohoon made a return to starting five days ago throwing 4 shutout innings allowing 2 hits and no walks while striking out 3. Caleb Clay has struck out 19 and walked 7 over 29 IP. His last start was a win with a strange line as he struck out 1 and walked 3, but allowed just 2 unearned runs on 3 hits over 5.1 IP.
Yeiper Castillo made his first start of the year six days ago, throwing 4 IP of shutout ball allowing 2 hits and a walk while striking out 8. On the year he has struck out 18 and walked 2, working 5 relief appearances previously.
After allowing a run on a hit batter in the 1st and then being stopped by the weather, Domingo Tapia gets a full four days rest for his 7th start of the year. Tapia has struck out 24 and walked 14 this year, while in 4 home starts he has struck out 22 and walked 5, allowing just 17 hits over 24.2 IP.
Todays game has been rained out, they will try to play two tomorrow beginning at 4 PM.
In his last start some mechanical corrections led to Zack Wheeler‘s best start of the year. In 6.2 IP he allowed a run on 5 hits, struck out 8 and walked 1, the last batter he faced. He has struck out 36 over 30 IP and walked 16 on the year, and after a previous no walk outing he followed it with a 6 walk outing. Today we will see if he can start to string good starts together.
Jesse Chavez has struck out 23 and walked 5 over 23.1 IP. Prior to last last start he spent a week with the A’s making three relief appearances.
