Jonah Bride singles on a ground ball to right field in the top of the 5th inning vs. the Red Sox for his first Major League hit
26-year-old Oakland 3B Jonah Bride isn t married to any one position. He s even messed around at catcher the last couple seasons. Impressive that despite his wandering ways he s posted plus offensive seasons at every extended stop (wRC+ scores of 122, 130, 149, and the 175 in 12 games at AAA this season). He played third base in his debut and isn t going to unseat Sean Murphy anytime soon, but he could hang onto a roster spot as Billy Beane and the Athletics try to cobble together a baseball team, shouting It s Alive! into an echoing, empty ballpark.
