Daniel Mengden pitches A’s to 8-1 win over White Sox



2018-04-17T05:31:16+0000

Daniel Mengden took a shutout into the ninth inning as the A's beat the Chicago White Sox, 8-1, at the Coliseum.

The A's got something Monday night they'd been sorely lacking: A long and effective outing from a starting pitcher not named Sean Manaea.

San Francisco Giants

Another dominating performance by Johnny Cueto and home runs from Evan Longoria and Brandon Belt lead the Giants to a series win in Anaheim. ...

That was to close in the 9th inning if you ask me. Ian Kinsler just missed it. I think Sam Dyson should be our closer. He did good for us last year, I really don’t trust Strickland.

worried about Cueto. Hope it’s nothing serious.

We were there!!! So many Giants fans in SoCal! Its was LOOOOOOUUUUUUD

And when, Bumgarner, returns and shures up our starting pitching, we gonna be rollin'!

Belt is tooooo coooool!

Whats more amazing the kid throws 47 pitches giants load the bases and dont score. Yes we won good pitched game. But leaving runners on base has been a problem for 2 yrs now. If this team plans on doing anything they need to start hitting with guys on base.

Being a Giant Fan in SoCal, i had to go to all three games of course!!!! lol.. Glad we got the series win today...

First series win of 2018!

Such a fun game! So nice to see my team NOT at Dodger stadium.

Great game Giants! Way to hang in there Brandon Belt!

Great win, Giants. Just 3 more games to even our record. Take it one game at a time Giants. It looks like we are getting our confidence back. Looks like we are hitting our stride just at the right time. Keep it up, Giants!!!👌👍🤞 🙂

Bases loaded,no outs and we get 2 runs? We aren't gonna win many games like that

Way to go Belt. Nice hit Longo. Get rid of Gearrin....

Good Job Johnny! love your pitching style👍🏼
and your smile 😉

EPIC at-bat by Belt.

Watson and Moronta are the only two I trust coming out of the bullpen. Gearrin and Dyson should be gone when Smith and Melancon (who I also don't trust) come off the DL. Meanwhile, our starters look good! Cueto and Stratton have been great! Blach has been steady. I am glad Samardzija is back - and I can't wait to see MadBum back!

Another great one for Johnny! Hope he's ok!

Cueto in April!
Keep in coming Belt!

I’m glad Cueto had a crappy 2017.

Good they need to string a bunch of these series wins together

I love it! Cueto was a BEAST! Now, I think it's time to send Osich to AAA, the guy needs to go back to gaining his fundamentals.

Keep that mojo going!

GIANTS!!!!

Gotta love watching Cueto pitch!

Nice game and series Giants....

Series win! Way to go, Giants! Great pitching by Cueto, and Belt comes through again! A little nerve-wracking with Strickland in the ninth, but a welcome W

Another almost blown save. One of the worst records in baseball. Lots of hits but not scoring. Waste of money for a closer that is still on disabled list. Time for some changes? Bring in Barry Bonds as hitting coach. Get rid of closer that doesn’t close.

woo!

Wow! One of the highest paid teams in baseball and finally we won a series! Nothing wrong with that at all lol

First series win of the season. WORLD SERIES BABY!! 🤣

Too bad they didn’t get the W last night when I went 😤

Torture

Great series, 2 of 3 on road. Take that all day long.

Torture is back! It's still early in the season. It's great that we're still pulling out Ws given the adversity. Go Giants!

Love Johnny ❤️

Excellent effort from everyone, but no-one can say they weren't getting nervous at the end haha

Cueto looks good. Need better offense all around tho. It’s taking it’s good time.

Yes!! IT IS ABOUT TIME! Come on GIANTS!! Keep it up!!

Love you Johnny! Glad we finally got you the WIN you deserve!!!

Way to go Johny!

Great job Johny ! Thank you for this great game Giants!

Plus Cueto was part of a double play! That was amazing.

Connie Bang. We love our Johhny!

Johnny did great today & Belt wow 21 pitching to him. Crawford? IEEE but after all that terrific win!

Great game.

Way to go Johnny

This seems like the only way for us to won ,TORTURE BABY !!!

Another great win
G Men! 🤙🤙🤙

This man though!!! Lowest ERA!

Does no one remember torture baseball??? We have to remember it’s early and they have to find a stride.seems like everyone is all about a series but we went decades before I saw a ring real fans are always here and always watching no matter what LETS GO GIANTS!!!

🔥🔥 Perhaps the Belt bashing will come to a crashing halt now?

Okay they won that's great but 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position and a 123 9th would've been nice TORTURE!

People writing Belt off may sit down now.

We need a closer.

You have to admit, all you folks who are so proud of yourselves for not bashing Belt, that his hitting woes were getting to the point of unbearable! I fought for the guy dozens of times but even I was calling for him to sit. The amazing thing about his sudden turn around is he's hitting that inside pitch that has been eating him alive the first 3 weeks. That and being more aggressive. Couldn't be happier for him. I hope this is the big break out we've all been waiting for!

Once again the Giants tried their best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory like normal, but alas, today it was not to be...

Cory Gearrin is HORRIBLE!!!!! He either blows leads or struggles EVERY time he goes out there!!! ENOUGH!!!!

And there goes effing Gearrin, why is he even on the team??? 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Excited to see the bats walking up.

Every one was tagging on Belt now he’s carrying the team!

Belt belts one for the fourth day in a row, and The Giants win their first series of 2018, and get to take their first happy flight of the year!! Go Giants!⚾️⚾️⚾️

What happened to Angel Pagan?

Now for the love of god, find a way to protect his head! 😆

Looks like belt may have found his swing

Torture right to the Last Out😂🤣😃

21 pitch ab for all the haters

Quite a day for Belt. 21 pitches for one at bat...it's a record.

Yeahhhhhh, no. Even with his hitting struggles, he’s still led or been second best on the team in OBP, OPS, and Slugging for the last 3 years.

It was all that extra batting practice he took in the first inning

Lets go Giants! clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap!

I never said nothing bad about belt or any other player on the team everyone goes through a slump in batting it’s early in the season Go Giants! ⚾️

Pour in on them Belt!

Way to go, Brandon!!

San Francisco Giants

Brandon Belt’s 1st inning AB: 21 pitches, a new MLB record for an at-bat.

This breaks the previous modern history record of 20 between Ricky Gutierrez and Bartolo Colon on 6/26/98.

Pitch chart for Brandon Belt's at-bat, which lasted approximately 12 minutes, 45 seconds.

In the first inning; that's actually productive whether he got on or out.

People need to lay off Belt. He's a good player.

If you still think Belt doesn’t have talent, after that at bat, you have no clue what baseball talent is. Sorry he doesn’t make you happy with his power, can’t have everything, all the time. Go Giants!

End result is usual Belt. Non productive fly ball out. 49 pitches Giants forced in first inning. 28 minutes. End result. Usual Giants last 3 years. ZERO ZILCH NOTHING. NO RUNS SCORED.

You know things are bad when everyone gets pumped about this nonsense...

And Bartolo is still in the league

This is why, many years ago, I switched from being an Angels fan to a Giants fan. The Giants, win or lose, play a game that is always more interesting to watch. There's just something about the Giants I like more.

Wear out the pitcher....bring out the bats! Go Giants! 🐻❤️⚾️

he hit a home run few innings later. Hush. Way to go belt.

It was awesome to watch but disappointing at the same time, not one run that inning!

Is he available next weekend for my sons little league game?

Wasn't there a record set between Nolan Ryan and Brian Downing? I don't remember how many times Nolan threw that ball, but it ended with Downing getting a single base hit, and Mr. Ryan tipped his hat to him. Great moment in baseball.

Way to go Belt.

Awesome at bat Brandon!

We have guys that should be able to hit so why are we not hitting?

Well at-bats like this sure aren't going to help the pace of play. Commissionaire Manfred isn't pleased with this at-bat.

That was a great @ Bat!

Couldn't believe it as I listened while driving up to Vacaville 😁😅

GREAT JOB Brandon. I have faith in you! Keep it up! YOU ARE THE REASON WE WIN THIS GAME!!!!!

Bartolo Colon 1998 is the best thing about this 😆

He’s really trying to work on not striking out

Then later in this game he gets the jack he deserves!
Brandons!

Some folks be bitter. The As could use more fairweather fans.

Brad Bognuda your boy doing his thing :)

Just another day at batting practice ‼️🤪

Would've been extra special if he #BELTED#. 😀😀😀
