Matt Ol­son hits walk-off as A’s top Brew­ers

Davis breaks long HR drought as A’s score ex­tra-in­nings win

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - By Shayna Rubin

OAK­LAND — Two walk offs in two games. Tues­day night’s, per­haps, a bit more ex­cit­ing than Sun­day’s walk-off walk. Matt Ol­son hit a first-pitch home run off Josh Hader in the 10th in­ning, giv­ing the A’s a 3-2 win over the Mil­wau­kee Brew­ers.

Khris Davis hit his first home run since June 18, giv­ing the A’s the A’s a 2-1 lead head­ing into the ninth in­ning. But Eric Thames took Liam Hen­driks deep in the ninth to tie things up.

Chris Bas­sitt bounced back from an iffy start against the Hous­ton Astros, deal­ing six shutout in­nings with six strike­outs — in­clud­ing two strike­outs against reign­ing Na­tional League MVP Chris­tian Yelich.

Matt Ol­son hit an RBI dou­ble in the third in­ning, plat­ing Jurick­son Pro­far for the A’s first run.

Against his old team, Davis got his sec­ond ex­tra base hit of the month on a dou­ble in the sixth in­ning.

Jake Diek­man made his A’s de­but, pitch­ing a score­less in­ning with one walk. Mar­cus Semien helped him out by snag­ging Ke­ston Hiura’s sharp ground ball for a tough out.

The Brew­ers tied the game in the eighth, with Or­lando Ar­cia’s reach­ing on a sin­gle against Yus­meiro Petit. Yelich ex­tended his hit­ting streak to 17 games with a sin­gle off Ryan Buchter, and Yas­mani Gran­dal plated Ar­cia with a first-pitch sin­gle off Hen­driks.
