While the team will head for Houston after Sunday night's 9-3 victory over the Rangers, Coco Crisp, the man widely credited over the past three seasons for making the A's tick, is returning to the Bay Area to have his sore neck examined, a team official said.
The only blemish was the two-run homer he surrendered to old friend Adam Rosales, whose sprint around the bases was a reminder of his trademark during his A's stint.
Despite his recent woes, the leadoff hitter has a .372 on-base percentage that ranks 10th in the American League and 40 points above his career average.
Sunday, they had no homers but 11 singles and doubles and went 6-for-16 with runners in scoring position.
Eric O'Flaherty and Ryan Cook combined for two scoreless innings, and Evan Scribner gave up an eighth-inning homer to Adrian Beltre.
The fire burns deep inside his 6-6, 270-pound self, he says with a wide smile. The desire, drive and hunger, too. Quinton Coples is an enigma with tantalizing physical gifts, a nice guy who could use a little bit of nastiness to fulfill his destiny of becoming a dominant NFL pass rusher.
There was an irreverence in Robert Ayers’ voice, maybe even a little hint of annoyance, when he was asked about the Giants’ old No. 91. The new No. 91 knows all about the man he’s replacing, Justin Tuck.
Diego Valeri broke a tie in the 82nd minute and the Portland Timbers held off Montreal 3-2 on Sunday night to extend the Impact's losing streak to five games.
Maximiliano Urruti and Will Johnson also scored for Portland (6-6-9).
Andres Romero and Maxim Tissot scored for Montreal (3-12-5).
Valeri pounced on a giveaway by Mamadou Danso, the former Timbers defender making his first appearance for the Impact, and fired a shot past goalkeeper Evan Bush.
