Jake Lamb is not the lineup for Game 3 of the ALDS against the Astros on Wednesday.
Lamb will remain out of the lineup for the second consecutive game. He hit third in Game 1 of the ALDS, but hasn’t appeared since. Chad Pinder will draw the start at 3B.
Jake Lamb is batting third and playing third base in the A's' ALDS Game 1 lineup against the Astros.
Not ideal. Oakland is missing star third baseman Matt Chapman right now, and they want Lamb's lefty power bat in the middle of the order against Lance McCullers. Oakland's full lineup is as follows: Tommy La Stella 2B, Marcus Semien SS, Lamb 3B, Mark Canha RF, Matt Olson 1B, Khris Davis DH, Robbie Grossman LF, Ramon Laureano CF, Sean Murphy C.
Jake Lamb went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in the A's 6-2 win over the Mariners in the final game of the regular season on Sunday.
Lamb has excelled with the A's since signing with Oakland following his release by the Diamondbacks in early September. He registered a solid .271/.340/.542 batting line with three home runs and nine RBI in 48 at-bats with the A's.
Jake Lamb went 1-for-3 with a single and two RBI in the A's blow out loss to the Giants on Sunday.
The hits just keep on coming for Lamb, who has now collected at least one in seven-consecutive games since joining the A's. He laced a two-run single off Giants starter Tyler Anderson in the sixth inning to give Oakland the only two runs they would score all day. The former D-back still has a rough .200/.297/.338 triple slash with two home runs and eight RBI (65 At-bats) on the season but he has a .364/.417/.727 batting line in his 22 at-bats with the A's so far.
Jake Lamb went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the A's 6-0 win over the Giants on Saturday.
Lamb is certainly enjoying his new surroundings in Oakland as he's picked up at least one hit in all six of his games as a member of the A's. His lone hit on Saturday was a two-run bomb off Sam Selman in the seventh to tack on a few insurance runs. He's slashing a studly .368/.400/.789 with two home runs and five RBI across 19 at-bats with Oakland.
