Sean Murphy went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Oakland's 5-1 loss to the Dodgers on Thursday.
Sean Murphy took Jake McGee deep in the eighth inning, his seventh HR of the season, when the game was well out of reach for the A's. The 25-year old backstop has seven home runs and 14 RBI on the year with a .234 batting average and a .822 OPS across 107 at-bats. It reads as a decent stat line on paper but considering five of those home runs and nine RBI all came in the month of September, it was a bit of a disappointment overall for a player that received off-season hype.
Sean Murphy went 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk in the A's 10-6 win over the Rangers on Friday.
Murphy took Jordan Lyles deep in the second inning for a solo blast and would reach two more times with a single and a walk. Through six games in September, Murphy is 6-for-16 with three home runs and five RBI; he had just two home runs and five RBI all year before the calendar flipped. He's still been a letdown overall but the recent hot streak has his slash line up to .235/.369/.447 with five homers and 10 RBI through 85 at-bats. While it's nice to see him hit the ball well his fantasy value is capped hitting at the bottom of the A's lineup.
Sean Murphy had a day for the A's as he went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, two runs scored, and a walk in Oakland's 6-0 win over the Astros on Monday.
Murphy has now picked up hits in three-straight games and has homered in back-to-back contests. Overall, the 25-year old backstop has been a disappointment this season but he's got a chance to make up for it down the stretch as Oakland's strengthens it's grip on the AL West lead. Murphy is slashing .231/.341/.423 with four home runs and nine RBI across 78 at-bats.
Sean Murphy went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the A's 5-3 loss to the Padres on Sunday.
Murphy crushed his third long ball of 2020 off Garrett Rirchards in the bottom of the seventh inning to pull Oakland within two runs of San Diego but they would ultimately lose. The 25-year old backstop generated some off-season buzz in fantasy circles but has failed to meet the hype. He's slashing .213/.322/.373 with three home runs and six RBI across 75 at-bats.
Sean Murphy went 1-for-3 with a single as the A's were blanked by the Padres on Friday 7-0.
Oakland only managed four hits as a team and didn't score a run on a night when Padres starter Zach Davies was rolling. Murphy has been a disappointment this year after garnering some off-season hype in fantasy circles. Following Friday's performance he's batting just .208 with a .655 OPS to go along with two home runs and five RBI.
