21 April
Oakland squeaks out a 2-1 win in 11 innings over the Angels. Bill Stonemen had a great start for the Angels going 8 2/3 innings. He was helped by Oakland's 3 caught stealings. Vida Blue was great until the 9th when a walk and 2 hits tied the game 1-1. Reggie Jackson Singled home Bill North in the 11th for the win. North was only on base due to Dave Chalk's error. Both Oakland runs were unearned.

TEAM RISP- Angels: 1 for 7  A's: 1 for 6
 
The Oakland A's edged the California Angels in 11 innings at Oakland Co
Stadium by the score of 2 to 1.
 
The score was knotted at 1 after nine innings.  Oakland came out on top in the
11th inning.  Bill North reached on an error.  Sal Bando came next and he
slapped a single.  Reggie Jackson then ripped a one-base hit giving Oakland
the win and sending the home town fans into a frenzy.  Neither team was able
to score until the 6th inning.  
 
Paul Lindblad(1-0) got credit for the victory, pitching 2 and 1/3 innings and
allowing no runs. Ed Figueroa(1-1) was hit with the loss in relief.  He was a
hard-luck loser as he did not allow an earned run in his 1 and 1/3 innings of
work.

How much longer before Alvin Dark takes Ray Fosse out of the lineup? Fosse has never been the same after Pete Rose barreled into him during the All-Star Game in 1970.

Nevermind. I just saw the bench and Haney isn't any good with the bat either.

Not much hitting support to help the pitching staff so far, but it is still early.

With you and the others bringing the mid to late 70's to the forefront, you all are making me think about starting up an AL replay with my newest set, well at least it's new to me since I just purchased the set from someone last month, 1975.

It would be interesting to hear Fosse's thoughts on how the injury changed his career trajectory.

Had he not been hurt, there is probably no way the Indians trade him to Oakland.  If he never winds up in Oakland, he never gets his two World Series rings.

How many times have you heard a great player say he'd trade the accolades for a ring?

I decided to take a look at Fosse's bbr page.  You know, he still put up decent numbers the next season.

In fact, they didn't even know the extent of his injury.  According to his SABR Bio, X-rays did not reveal any damage at the time.  The team figured he had just suffered a bad bruise from the collision with Rose.

It wasn't until 1971 that it was discovered he had played through the second half with a fracture and shoulder separation.  But he was an All-Star again in '71, and said he felt healthy in '72, though his average dipped to .241, and his home run total fell to 10.

Still, his teammates were stunned when the Tribe dealt him to Oakland, along with infielder Jack Heidemann, in exchange for catcher Dave Duncan and outfielder George Hendrick.

Catfish Hunter bested Gaylord Perry for the 4-1 win over the Tribe. Sal Bando hit a 2 run Homerun in the 1st inning. Rollie Fingers earned his 1st save as Hunter ran out of gas in the middle of the 9th inning. George Hendrick went deep for the Indians.

How much longer before Alvin Dark takes Ray Fosse out of the lineup? Fosse has never been the same after Pete Rose barreled into him during the All-Star Game in 1970.

Nevermind. I just saw the bench and Haney isn't any good with the bat either.


It would be interesting to hear Fosse's thoughts on how the injury changed his career trajectory.

Had he not been hurt, there is probably no way the Indians trade him to Oakland.  If he never winds up in Oakland, he never gets his two World Series rings.

How many times have you heard a great player say he'd trade the accolades for a ring?


 I'm not sure what he would say about his start to the season, but I bet he would not be happy with it.

As Seajaw alluded to, the whole "Pete Rose ruined Ray Fosse's career" thing is a bit of a canard. He hit .297 after the injury that season, and he made the All-Star team the next year. He played for several more seasons, but the league and circumstance caught up with him. He had a couple of other years where he hit decently, but the power shortage was more likely the result of moving from a good home run park in Cleveland to the Oakland Mausoleum than any long-lasting effect of the injury. It's an easy narrative the press picked up on and have continued but it has no concrete basis in fact and in all the years I have listened to Ray do A's games I never once heard him use it as an excuse.

He was horrible in 74 and even worse in 75, so they cut him loose, but he bounced back a bit when he returned to Indians for a couple of years before retiring after 12 yeas in the majors, seven and a half after the collision.

24 April-The most frustrating game so far
The Indians beat the A's 1-0. In the 6th Charlie Spikes sac fly scored Buddy Bell after he had Doubled. Al Dark was obviously frustrated in the press conference. "Nothing worked today. Bill North is struggling, but I let him swing away in the 1st inning resulting in a double play. North then led off the 4th with a hit but. Bando was up and I let him swing away, but that turned into another DP and a wasted leadoff hitter. In the 8th Fosse got hit. I put Herb Washington in the game and finally put a bunt on just to watch him get erased at 2b on the failed sacrifice." Meanwhile Indian's skipper Ken Aspromonte was being praised for his managerial move. In the 9th he put Rusty Torres into left field replacing John Lownestein. Bando crushed a ball, but Torres robbed him of a Homerun...a ball Lowenstein would not have caught.

Dick Tidrow went the distance getting key defensive help shutting out the A's. He also did not issue a walk.

WEB GEMS- Top 9th: Rusty Torres robbed Sal Bando of a Homerun!
 
Third baseman Buddy Bell had 2 base hits and Dick Tidrow tossed a shutout as
the Cleveland Indians outscored the Oakland A's 1 to 0.
 
Tidrow(1-2) had a strong outing.  He was stingy on the mound, allowing just 7
hits and no walks in 9 innings improving his ERA from 4.79 to 3.34.  Oakland
had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.  
 
Ken Holtzman(0-4) was tagged with the loss.  He allowed 6 hits and 3 walks in
5 and 1/3 innings.  Al Dark was clearly disappointed after the game.  'It was
a manager's nightmare out there', he said, 'We should have had this one.'
