3yJustin Verlander is the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young award-winner so he tends to get a large strike zone. Bob Melvin said he hopes his pitchers receive the same treatment from Game 5 home plate umpire Wally Bell.
3yThe A's still have a game to win, but that hasn't stopped the team from announcing that the tarps in the third deck will be removed for any more postseason games played in Oakland.
3yOnly eight teams in the history of MLB have come back from a 2-0 deficit in a best of five series. Are the A's to set up to do it again?
