Oakland beat the Angels today 2-1 with just two hits: a single by Jack Cust in the fourth that didn't figure in the scoring and a game-winning RBI pinch hit single by Travis Buck in the seventh. Oakland did draw seven walks, so the A's weren't hurting for baserunners.
The Athletics were the eighth team this year to win a game in which they got two or fewer hits. The other seven can be found here. The Padres have won three such games this year, all by the score of 1-0 and all started by Tall Chris Young.
In the last 50 years, 1971 has seen the most wins by teams getting two or fewer hits. In that year, there were 12. That included a game on April 9, 1971 when Oakland beat Kansas City 5-0 in 5 1/2 innings on just two hits. And all five runs scored in one inning, the second, and the A's only had only one hit in that inning. Vida Blue struck out 13 Royals. It was Oakland's first win of the season and the A's would pick up 100 more in the regular season to go to the postseason for the first time since 1931.
