Athletics and Pirates Notes

July 25, 2018

From (1971-1975) the Oakland Athletics and Pittsburgh Pirates combined to win an incredible nine “one quarter” division titles in ten possibilities.

Oakland won “div” titles in all five of those seasons and took the big prize, the World Series in three straight seasons from (1972-1974).

This season, while stratospheres or seemingly so from the aforementioned prowess, each team has thus far written some good stories.

Pittsburgh has won eleven straight games and with the All-Star break included has not lost a game in over 2 weeks. (the last loss was vs “Wash” on Tuesday July 10th). They are (53-49), currently 5th among non first place teams, but only three games out, in a bid for playoffs qualification in the National League.

The Athletics are (59-43) and only one and a half games behind the Seattle Mariners for playoff qualification in the American League.
