Sun, 23 Apr 2017 01:52:54 GMTOakland Athletics infielder Adam Rosales has never been one to take a leisurely stroll after hitting a home run. Quite the contrary, in fact, as Rosales has become famous for turning his round trippers into all-out sprints. You might think that came to be because Rosales wasn’t always sure his baseball was leaving the yard.

His command deserted him in the top of the third against Seattle, and that led to a disastrous inning that told the story in an 11-1 loss that halted the A’s five-game winning streak. Triggs, who hadn’t allowed a single earned run in winning his first three starts of 2017, walked Robinson Cano to load the bases in the third, then issued another free pass to Nelson Cruz that forced in a run and put the Mariners up 2-0.

With the A’s a little strapped against Seattle lefty starter Ariel Miranda, Rosales was Oakland’s leadoff hitter Saturday for the first time since 2013. When asked, he thought the last time he’d done it was 2012, but what’s a year or so when going over the highlights of your career. Rosales came into Saturday with five games as a leadoff hitter on his resume. All five were in 2013, and one stands out. “The last time I remember leading off was 2012 in Yankee Stadium,” Rosales said Saturday morning. “It was C.C. (Sabathia, starting for the Yanks).
