The Oakland Athletics defeated their Triple-A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats, in an annual spring training exhibition.
A walk, a bloop and a bomb. That seemed to be the pedigree the offense utilized, while the pitching was nearly perfect.
Though Oakland won, 9-0, there were many areas of concern for the organization. Most of the runs came via walks and errors.
The impressive pitching and final score hid the reality that the A's soundly handled a minor league team. If only it counted.
Here are the winners and losers from the Saturday night contest.
