One-Hit Homer Win

Oak-1-Hit Win

The Oakland A’s made the news this week by winning a game while getting only one hit — a home run. According to one story, this hadn’t happened since 2006.

I remember the 2006 game — a White Sox win over St. Louis by a score of 1-0 on a Jim Thome home run. I attended the game with a friend, Bob W., who is an avid Cardinals fan. He also cheers for the White Sox as his “American League” team, and that night he brought two caps to the park – Cardinals for the first half of the game and White Sox for the second half. As the no-hitter by Cards’ rookie pitcher Anthony Reyes moved into the 6th inning, it became clear that his Cardinals cap was not going away. Thome’s homer came in the 7th inning and was the only run that Freddie Garcia needed for the victory. Bobby Jenks pitched the 9th for the save.

    Don’t remember that game. But any Cardinal loss is a good thing. Too bad the CWS couldn’t hang on to the lead yesterday …. might have been making more history on wins in a row against the Yankees and could have had a chance to sweep today. 3 out of 4 would still be nice. But its nothing for the history books other than Derek Jeter’s last regular season game in U.S. Cellular Field. Maybe he deserves a life time supply of bacon on a stick.
