What a month of contrasts that May was for the A’s.
HOUSTON — The A’s are moving up Kendall Graveman to start Saturday against the Astros, with Rich Hill still hampered by a groin issue.
They’ve rattled off five victories in a row, in a season where they’ve also posted a separate six-game winning streak along with four streaks of four-plus losses in a row.
Tuesday night’s walk-off loss at Seattle wound up feeling like one of those emotional swing games for the A’s, where the entire outlook on this series changed with one pitch.
The A’s received encouraging injury news Monday as manager Bob Melvin told reporters in Seattle that right fielder Josh Reddick won’t require surgery on his fractured left thumb.
