Shoemaker makes first appearance since head injury


Danny Espinosa hit a two-run single one night after delivering a deciding three-run homer, and Andrelton Simmons doubled home a run in the second against Jharel Cotton (0-1). He hit an 0-2 pitch from RHP Ryan Dull.

Boring allowed back-to-back singles to Jefry Marte and Cameron Maybin to begin the ninth before retiring Andrelton Simmons on a fielder's choice. The pitcher then exited the game.

The Oakland Athletics have to get back on track after a heartbreaking loss, but they've shown positive signs the first couple of games.

"I was just kind of feeling it on my release", he said. "At times you nearly have to guess with him a little bit, especially when he's spotting his fastball and he's got decent velocity with it".

Tiresome faced Espinosa on the previous night and struck him out.

She was reportedly with a group of friends, and was walking on the catwalk on the underbelly of the bridge, and fell 60 feet. The 730-foot-tall bridge is the highest in California and one of the highest in the U.S.

"They were hitting mistake pitches", Cotton said. He made his first start Wednesday since May 1. He said his wife, Danielle, probably "feels a little better" that he'll have added protection but didn't pressure him to wear the insert.

The Angels said Richards just had a cramp in his biceps and was removed for precautionary reasons.

Oakland took an early lead as designated hitter Ryon Healy belted a solo home run in the first. He scored 17 percent of Los Angeles' runs, the highest percentage for an AL player since Rickey Henderson with the 1985 New York Yankees. Offensively, Jed Lowrie leads Oakland with five hits and one RBI while Khris Davis and Rajai Davis have combined for five hits and four RBI.

Oakland starting pitcher Sean Manaea faulted himself, especially for a walk that contributed to the rally.

"I think I've grown a lot", Manaea said. "Moving away from my parents I got brought into that world quick".

Elizabeth was last seen when a friend dropped her off at a restaurant in Columbia, about 40 miles southwest of Nashville. Elizabeth is described as white, with blond hair and hazel eyes, 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds.

Lowrie was 3 for 4 with a home run and a double - and almost hit for the cycle.

Shoemaker went 9-13 with a 3.88 ERA last season in 27 starts but was 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in his last three starts before his season-ending injury. In 186 innings, he struck out 108 and walked 47. With a visible scar on his head from last year's injury, Shoemaker talked about a ball hit in his direction Tuesday that gave him a jolt.

"That's what I think is great about it, because I'm not thinking about it at all", Shoemaker said Monday.

Manaea left the game after six innings of four-run ball. It includes $2.5 million in performance bonuses based on starts: $250,000 each for eight and 12; $500,000 apiece for 16, 20, 24 and 28; and $1 million based on relief appearances: $250,000 each for 30 and 40; $500,000 for 60. Davis raced for third, and Escobar's wild throw allowed him to score on the error.

There's even an interstitial shot in which we see Jenner remove her wig and toss it to a black woman, as if to say "hold this". Outraged tweeters claimed that the Pepsi ad was guilty of exploiting, erasing and blaspheming against the BLM movement.
