Smith finds joy in 'unbelievable ride' despite being denied first win since '08

OAKLAND — The only person in the A’s clubhouse who didn’t seem to feel bad for Chris Smith on Tuesday night was Chris Smith. The right-hander, making just his second start in a big league career that began in 2008, got robbed of his first victory in nine years when his bullpen couldn’t hold a ninth-inning lead in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay. But after talking to him, it was clear that his smile couldn’t have been bigger, his humor any more genuine and good-natured, if he had actually pocketed the ‘W’. “It’s like ‘Whoo!

It’s easy to see why manager Bob Melvin sees value in his young pitchers being exposed to Smith, a 36-year-old who went back to college six years ago thinking his career was over, then threw for two independent league teams in working his way back to a major league farm system. In a second start Tuesday in place of Jharel Cotton, Smith limited Tampa Bay to three hits over seven innings.
