Welcome into the broadcast, Ladies and gentlemen.
I might as Gettleman where you got a good game here.
Bottom of the first Game three in this wild card around between the Athletics and the White Sox.
And here's time you live.
Still eating it all for the Athletics, and that's gonna be in there for a strike.
Gets one in one.
So so I wasn't here for the top of the first, but we're here in the bottom of the first athletics batting.
They are the home team.
You're in the Oakland Coliseum, former home of the Raiders.
Now the Raiders are in Las Vegas, so it's just home to the Athletics that pitch low for a ball so serious tied 11 This world card around is a three game series, so whoever wins this will move on.
Whoever loses will end their MLB season and, uh, pretty good matchup today for the Athletics pitching.
It's Mike fires anywhere the Stella line.
Drive up the middle.
It's gonna get in there for a single and a leadoff hit to start off this game from Tommy La Stella, who was traded to the Athletics at the trade deadline coming from They're Angels.
He was an All Star last year, and he had a tremendous first half on the Angels anyway.
Here's Marcus Semien hit a long home run yesterday.
Simeon was the leadoff hitter for the Athletics until timing. The Stella was traded.
Sam in one of the best leadoff hitters.
I don't know if I could say that anymore because he bats in the second hole semi in court, ball outside.
So let me get you Marcus Semien stats to 23 batting average.
But again, this is a 16 game season.
Seven home runs, pretty good shortstop, both fueling and speed that pitch outside but called a strike.
It's one and one.
So in the bullpen, the White Sox or do you have someone up in the bullpen? Which is quite weird because it's only the bottom of the first, and I mean canings only thrown six pictures.
I don't see a problem anyway. Simeon.
High fly ball, foul territory.
Jose and Braves there for the first out of this ball game for the Chicago White Sox, White Sox and my number one sleeper team coming into this season.
And, boy, was I right.
They've turned out to be a great team.
They are the seventh seed, but I think if you actually watch them, you know they play better than a seven seat.
If you don't watch them.
Well, um, you know, they kind of act if you don't watch them and you just see their stats and you look and you see that it says seven seed Wrong.
You don't think you're that good, but believe me, they're better.
Then the seven seats.
Yeah, LA Stella on first one out, away that pitch outside.
So here's Jake Lamb or another one who didn't start their season off on the Athletics since September 14th.
Very, very good tops in the majors and many categories.
This pitch to lamb is high for a ball.
It's one on one.
Everyone for tuning into this broadcast is the Lady of Broadcast.
So just radio got a good mike today.
Here's Jake Lamb, the lefty canning the pitcher for the White Sox.
The righty pitch.
Still, Jake Lamb fouls it off, so I'll get you.
Why the White Sox have someone up in the ball, but again, it's only the first inning and cannons only allowed one hit, one hit.
This is only the third batter.
I don't know what the White Sox were thinking.
Here it's game through.
You have tow win.
So if the White Sox you think that canings about toe give up tons of runs better take him out because that could be the ball game that will be your season because they would be eliminated.
Lam another foul ball.
It's one and two and thanks everyone for tuning in.
Really appreciate it.
Used to pitch used to catch one and two.
So Mike fires okay.
First inning gave up a few base runners but got out without allowing anyone's anyway.
High fly ball, shallow right field.
It's gonna be caught, and that's the second out.
So obviously a big blow for the Athletics.
There would be a much better team.
They are the second seat as of now, but Matt Chapman? I think he's a top three third ba*****t in the MLB.
Some disagree, but anyway, he's definitely top five.
Chapman really known for defense, but this year he's been amazing on the offensive side of things as well.
But he got injured with about I would say 10 games left in the season, and it's a season ending injury so obviously won't be able to play in the playoffs as well.
Here's Mark Canha.
Rob the home run yesterday.
Pretty good player.
Athletics as a team. Very good.
This pitch to Canada in their first strike again to outsource tell on first base.
Mhm glad to do a broadcast canna to 46 batting average this season.
Mhm Pitch to Kanna.
Outside, It's the ball, one and one.
Glad to be with you guys, uh, of still on froze.
Here's the 112 Kanneh, the 15 pitch from canning can a rips it left field that's gonna fall in the Stella's going around second.
He's gonna go to third, and he's gonna get there.
Are nice single.
So there's now runners on the corners for the Athletics.
A chance to score here again.
There is two hours, and this may be the game for canning.
Yep, what's up is going to go to the bullpen.
Even the first were two outs, so that is it for canning.
But again, you have to be small here.
You can't say, Let's try to get canning and rhythm.
This is the end of the season if you lose.
So it's not about making canning happy.
It's about advancing to the first round again.
This is a wild card round.
You could consider this the first round doesn't really met, uh, new picture for the White Sox, and it looks like it's gonna be Garrett Cratchit.
The left hand picture from the White Sox is gonna face another lefty, Matt Olsen.
Top three first ba*****t.
So a nice single from Arcana move the Stella, the third runners on the corners for the Oakland Athletics 00 game.
Let's get you the plays from the top of the first because I didn't commentate that.
So Mike fires on the mound for the Athletics and the top of the first, uh, got out of trouble, right? Finish standing, giving up no runs but did give up to it.
Um, that was a Tim Anderson single and Ah, Jose and pray you double.
But again, lucky for my fires and athletics, it didn't convert into any runs.
So, as of now it's a 00 game could change any second again.
New picture for the White Sox with runners on the corners.
There is two outs.
Yeah, so it's commercial.
But the new picture for the White Sox will be gear Cratchit first time pitching in the playoffs.
Med Olson looking for his first it in the playoffs.
And I'm talking about this season.
I don't know the career numbers in the playoffs, um, medals and probably hasn't hit in the playoffs.
The Athletics made the playoffs last year's wire card.
Yeah, sure that happen anyway.
It's gonna be mad.
Olson coming up Cruz Davis on deck, so that's going to do it for Dane Dunning.
Two thirds innings pitched to it as of now.
No runs, but again, he's responsible for the runners on the corners.
That's Estella at third, Enbrel Kanneh at first.
So so here's Gil Cratchit pitched in one game at Tennessee on March 7th, 11th overall pick in the 2020 MLB draft.
So this is a guy that's really young, so obviously, now I can make the assumption and I'm probably No, it's a fact that he's never played in the playoffs.
I mean, he was drafted and this year's draft eso the rookie coming in at a big position and the first pitch from him, and his playoff career is in there for a strike toe.
A dangerous hitter now Matt Olsen, when he gets hits their whole months, doesn't really get any hits besides home runs.
Here's the one told Cindy.
1000 out for someone to.
So again, Cratchit coming in at a big time in this game, right on Lee.
The first inning.
But there are runners on the corners on Let's say he gives up the whole month of Adelson, who has 14 home runs.
And again, Like I said, when he gets hits, they're usually home runs.
That's gonna be a 30 only if that Herman goes over the wall, and that could be the end of the game.
Already, though, to pitch Tolson almost a wild pitch.
Nice stop in the dirt from Yasmani.
Grandal, one of the best characters in the game of baseball, was acquired in free agency from the White Sox, spent his last few years on the Dodgers.
Pretty good catcher, I would say, is the second best behind J.
Kuramoto, who is a free agent this offseason.
The Phillies resent.
Here's the one to the Olsen got jammed up.
1000 back B on the plate.
Thanks, everyone for watching.
Like I said, the pitch Tolson swing and a Miss Cratchit comes in for his playoff debut and gets the strikeout and saves canning.
That's gonna be then the first we had to the 2nd 00 game.
Both teams have to hips.
I'll be back in just a second.
Okay? So we're gonna head to the top of the second very crucial game.
I'll be doing the first you winnings.
Maybe the first three innings.
Haven't been doing play by play broadcast.
I've been busy with high school, but appreciate all of you watching a big game.
Like I said, no advances.
Loser hands their season once again.
Thanks everyone for watching radio commentary Game three between the White Sox and Oakland Athletics.
Two seed versus the seven seed Athletics are the two seed and the home team.
So let me get you other scores around the MLB.
And let's start with the first game that happened today.
The Reds and Braves.
It was game to the Braves won Game one in extras, and they win Game two to advance the next round.
They shut out the red five.
That's the end of the season for the Reds, but the Braves continued the season advancing to the next round.
So again, the Braves won five. Nothing.
The Marlins, Cubs, Gaidar postponing.
It's gonna happen tomorrow.
Which would be game, too, if the Cubs won Game two.
Serious would be tied 11 and there will be a game on Saturday, and that would probably be the only game on Saturday in MLB.
On that's there's a rain delay in one of these games anyway.
Mike fires back to work facing Louis.
The rookie probably is gonna finish second and rookie of the year voting Neon Kyle Lewis from the Mariners, who is probably gonna give you Robert 11 home months in this series.
Two for 82 singles.
He's a rookie, so this is his playoff debut and Louis Robert Ah, fly ball left field and that's gonna go.
His first playoff home run.
The White Sox get off to a one.
Louis Robert, One of the best rookies in the game, It's a big fly.
Projected distance, 487 ft.
You got to be kidding me. Louis.
Robert goes yard and the White Sox have a one. Nothing.
A 480 something for home run.
Wow! Oakland Coliseum.
A big stadium because again, it was used for the Raiders when they played football.
So foul territory is big and really un symmetrical stadium.
But Louis Robert goes deep.
His first home run in the play and his playoff history Because he's a rocky.
This will bring up the right.
You don't know Mama Zara.
It's one in one.
Louis Robert a monster shot and the White Sox get off to a good lead again.
We'll see if the White Sox, when they're on the road here again, I don't know if you want to call it home field advantage for the Athletics.
They are at home again. There's no fans.
Mazara high fly Bob's gonna going to the bleachers for a foul ball.
Yeah, hopefully I can get a clip of my home run call for Louis robber.
That ball just went out in a hurry, got the exact distance of that shot.
Ladies and gentlemen, Jeff Passan confirms it.
Wow! 487 ft home.
The White Sox won nothing.
Pitch the Mazar outside.
Do you want to? Mike fires, Mike Fires.
My bad has bounced off a numerous amount of teams, growers, tons of teams.
I can't even name all of them.
But yeah, it's now full count that pitch.
So let me get you the exact seems you remember the Astros.
So the Brewers, Astros, Tigers and now the athletics.
Mike Fires actually has pitched not just one no hitter, but two no hitters in his MLB career myself.
Not a big fan of him, because I was a Marlins fan and I still am.
He hit Giancarlo Stanton that coughs and to be out the rest of the season, that gruesome pits that had standing in the face.
So I don't really like Mike fires.
But besides that, he's fine.
Astros fans don't like him.
He was actually the one that reported that the Astros cheated in the world.
Siri's he was on that team.
He admitted it once.
He became a free agent.
So two no hitters, which is amazing.
Uh, this will bring up Ingles in the whole one, I believe. Game one.
There's no one to him Swing and a miss.
Not that good of a swing.
I mean, and thanks everyone for tuning into the broadcast.
Yeah, not pro ball in there for strike.
My fire strikes him out looking at a mango goes down.
Second strikeout from fires.
This to bring up the number nine hitter.
Mad recall the second baseman Two routes and the second No. One on base.
The highlight of this inning.
Louis Robert 487 ft home run, making it look like it's a home run derby on that.
That's a rookie.
Ladies and gentlemen, here's the O on to Nick Matter.
Go ground ball up the middle.
It's gonna go into the outfield for two out single, and now we go back to the top of the order, where a dangerous Tim Anderson it comes to the plate to MAnderson, last year's A L batting champ.
Very, very, very, very fun player to watch one.
I think he's the best leadoff hitter in the game of baseball, just ahead of D.
LeMay who who actually finished right behind Tim Anderson for the AL batting champ last year.
Well, guess what? Um, did you tell me who got his revenge? And he won the O Bannon check, But anyway, last year, not this year.
But last year Tim Anderson finished first for the oil batting jump.
May have finished second last year. May.
Who now finishes first.
But anyway, I think Tim Anderson is the best leadoff hitter in the game of baseball.
Look, Ronald Acuna is better than Tim Anderson, but I don't really like Acuna is a leadoff hitter.
I don't think he's a true leadoff hitter.
Tim Anderson is.
But anyway, being realistically, I still have toe have.
Acuna is the best leadoff hitter, but he is in the N.
So if we talk about best leadoff hitters in the A L, I go 12 MAnderson then to D.
LeMay, who, what makes both of them to MAnderson and detail may be so good as they have speeches still bases.
They're always gonna get high averages.
That's whether a or banning chimps, but also they hit home runs, which is again impressive for any lead outfitter.
Here's the 11 pitched the Anderson Matter goal on first pitched Anderson, outside called a strike one and two.
Fire is trying to get out of the Senate.
Gave up one run on a 487 ft home.
I'm not kidding from the rookie Lewis Robert.
That's gonna have a great career as well. Kyle Lewis.
Policy for colors.
Robert would have won rookie of there.
It's not announced, but I think we could all say that.
Kyle Lewis from the Mariners.
One of your key of the Mike fires checks on Mad Girl at first trying to keep them close to the bag.
The one to pitch the tomatoes and it's high.
Thanks everyone for tuning in.
Mike Fires checks on Magara goal again on first base.
Is safe medals in there at first base? Mhm.
Ah, here's the 22 pitch, the Tim Anderson Tim Anderson line Drive right field, and that's gonna fall in a field ball.
Cannon is gonna get it and right he's gonna throw it but matter.
Girl rounding third and he's gonna quickly go back.
So a double from Tim Anderson.
Oh boy, hit that opposite field just fair in right field.
Kanna was trying to let it go.
Let's look if he could have got to that and maybe they were diving catch.
I don't think he could have got to that, but a foot away from being fell.
But it's a fair ball.
So a two out double from Tim Anderson, like I said, keeps on producing at the plate.
Fun player, toe watch.
What we say? Dangerous.
I don't think he's like, Look, he had 12 months.
He's not a home run threat.
You know you're gonna have to walk him.
No, but if there's bases loaded, he does get a lot of singles.
Anyway, Mike Fires started off then and giving up a Moonshot to Louis Robert.
That's the only run he's allowed, but he is in trouble.
What? Tim and you're set on second and matter girl on throat, and this will bring up yes money.
Goodall batting second, one of the best catchers as it a home run in the last two games, which means the two playoff games the White Sox have played this season will he make it three games straight with the home run? This would be a three run home run.
If he does this, pitch outside to GRONDAHL.
The lefty Mike Fires, the writing's already left the matchup favoring the hitter.
Tim Anderson has eight hits in his first three career postseason games that ties Dante Bichette, Mark Grace and two others.
So if he gets the 90th, you will make history.
His pitch to Grondahl.
Inside football, it's one and one.
Here's the too old to Grondahl.
Single will probably be two R B I's Tomb Anderson on second.
Here is inside again.
It's Do you know you do not wanna walk? And all that would load the bases with a nem VP candidate coming to the plate? Jose Abreu.
You has been the best player on the White Sox this season.
Besides Lucas Giolito, who pitched in Game one and pitched a gem.
All right, the 300 Goodall and it's high and outside that will load the basis bringing up Jose, you bre you in.
This is not gonna be a pitching change, but Yep, No, it will.
I thought pitching coach was gonna check on fires, but that's gonna be it for him.
So Fires does last longer than canning, but can't even give up any runs.
But Mike Fires did not kneel.
Picture coming in for the Oakland Athletics, trying to get the throat out of this inning, which would strand three letters with the bases loaded.
Okay, so the new picture coming in that will replace Mike Fires will be Pettitte.
Yes, Miro Pettit again facing Jose Braille Someone you do not want to face because he had room shots and he's an M V P candidate probably won't win it because he's in the A l with someone named Shea Bieber, whose gonna win son but probably win. M v p.
But it's not gonna win playoff something P because, well, the Indian Who's the team Shane Bieber's on? Well, they got eliminated.
Game one in Game two.
Okay, I'll be back in just a second. Still, commercial.
Okay, So new picture petite facing Jose Braille bases loaded.
A Grand slam could finish this game and eliminate the Athletics.
You may say why.
Whoa, it's not gonna be walk up.
It's not gonna end the game right away, but a grand Sam or make it a five nothing game in the Athletics may not even score five runs the rest of this game.
And even if they dio, who said the White Sox are not going to score more runs now? Canning, who was the starting pitcher for the White Sox, is out of the game, so it's gonna be a bullpen our game for the rest of this, uh, game for the White Sox.
But still, anyway, here's the Braille first pitch low in the dirt for ball.
A big, big spot in this game, both for the Athletics and White Sox, but more for the Athletics because the White Sox, already ever one nothing lead Jose Cabrera career with the bases loaded 3 28 average, 19 for 58 including two Grand Slams.
Could you make it a throw? Grand Slam? You're in the playoffs.
I want to know or break your ground ball.
Those were the first, and that's gonna end the inning.
So petite comes in and well gets athletics head of trouble.
Do you give up one run? But I was on a Louis Robert Moonshot.
Anyway, we head to the bottom.
The second Athletics coming to the plate.
Why was the commotion? Why not share my screen in show the 487 ft home run at right now he's the only run score in this game That was a moon shot from Louis.
Robert, I'm not going to describe it.
Just watch how good this home run is.
I know Jeff passing, uh, tweeted it out.
So let's share a quick clip.
I mean, that was a moon shop.
I commentated the home run, But you guys probably Ah, some of you probably weren't watching so hot share my screen.
Speaking of Louis, Robert, he's the youngest a player to homer in a winner take all game since ****ey Mantle, former Yankee in Game seven of the 1952 oldsters.
Wow! Ah, player in the big leagues, Here's the clip is not a finished product.
I mean, this is a Moonshot.
Look where this landed, Ladies and gentlemen Oh, Ma And again, this dog when Carlos iam, which is impressive Just look at the crack of this bat boom.
Smoke that Ah, bottom of the second and leading off it's gonna be Cruz Davis.
It's the rookie again drafted.
It's impressive that he's a rookie pitching in the playoffs, but not just that.
He he was drafted in this year's draft, which means he made it to the majors quickly.
The left fielder Grossman on deck.
Chris Davis files it back.
It's one and one.
This will be my last half inning.
I'll go three innings taking longer than expected, So I'm just going to do the first two winnings or why not made you a few games later.
Uh, Dodgers play the Brewers late tonight.
Anyway, Chris Davis fouls it off again.
It's one and two, the 1 to 2 Chris Davis and he went checks.
Winged first base.
Um, said he when? And that's the first out in the second Cratchit second strikeout and two batters faced.
This will bring up Grossman scratch.
It gets the strikeout still tons of times up in this game on their one run game.
Now, medical trainers going out to the mound to check on crutch it.
We'll see if they take him out there looking at his hand and it looks like the White Sox.
We're gonna get to people quickly up in the bullpen.
No, no, Kotcher told me.
Face to hitters, the rookie and he's gonna get taken out of this game.
Looks like his hand or his finger.
Got injuries always gonna be taken out.
Phase two batters, Two strikeouts.
Got the job done.
And the first Saudi got was a very crucial out.
That was two outs, bases loaded.
He got that out.
Oh, my bad runners on the corners.
I'm losing my mind because the White Sox, when they came to the plate in the top of the second at the base load.
But last inning was the athletics runners on the corners, Estella and salmon.
So a pitching change.
I'll be back in a few seconds.
