6-10-09- The A's played against Clintondale again. This time it wasn't such a pleasant trip. A few missed balk calls got both dugouts a lil cranky. After 2 hit batters enough was enough. Ryan Napoli was hit by a pickoff attempt twice in a row, he was elbowed by the opposing 3rd baseman and then Napoli sent the kid to the ground with an abrupt shove. Both dugouts were emptied, but nobody was ejected, not even Nick Buckler... yes I know somewhat hard to believe after he was ejected out of a record 7 games last season. But there was a game being played too and the A's lost 12-7.
A Rare Occaison
6-6-09- The A's got trounced by the Macomb Nationals. This is a team the A's beat 13-3 a week ago, but tonight, they suffered a 13-3 loss of their own.

Nick Buckler also gave the team a little spark aggressively when he came into pitch in relief and smoked a Nationals player right in the head with a 78 mph fast ball.
