|Sunday, May 16th, 2027: González Puts Spell on New York|
The New York Yankees were almost helpless today in their 6-0 loss to Oakland hurler Oliver González. He kept them confused the entire ballgame and spun a 4-hit shutout.
The New York manager said in the postgame interview, "Tip your hat to González. He kept us off balance all night."
González said, "It just happened to be one of those games where even when I made mistakes, they either fouled them off or someone would make a fine defensive play. It was just one of those games that things went my way."
He had no walks and 2 strikeouts in a strong performance.
This year González has worked 55.2 innings with 15 strikeouts en route to a 3-2 record and a 5.01 ERA.

San Francisco catcher Yasmani Grandal really lit up the Oakland Athletics with a 5-hit barrage today at 3Com Park -- a performance that sparked the Giants to a 13-2 triumph.
He shrugged off the performance after the game and said, "Sometimes the ball finds outfielders, today the ball found some holes."
Y. Grandal hit an RBI double in the 2nd, singled in the 3rd, doubled in the 5th, hit a GRAND SLAM off C. Gillette in the 6th and hit a solo-shot off C. Edwards Jr in the 8th.
So far this year Grandal is batting .333 with 4 home runs, 13 RBIs and 15 runs scored.
