George Springer Leads Game Off With A Fastball To The Hand


George Springer's day in Oakland lasted one at bat, excuse me plate appearance.  He took a fastball up and in off of his hand ending his day.

I love the move by the pitcher.  Start off a game with a hit batter and consider the tone set for the entire game.

Unfortunately for the A's the Astros weren't feeling the tone and set their own by putting up 12 runs.
