Luis Barrera de A ‘proud’ to have landed his first league success
In the minors, A outfielder Luis Barrera has more strokes than games played. So it didn’t take too long for Barrera to collect his first big-league shot.
Making his first start on Sunday, Barrera faced Angels reliever Aaron Slegers in the fourth inning. Slegers threw a fast 1-1 and Barrera sliced a soft drive from the opposite field line to left field for a single. He rounded the first base and clapped three times. It was Barrera’s fourth at bat since he was called up to Oakland last Tuesday.
