This is a disappointing loss for many Oakland Athletics fans as their team continues to perform poorly.

Many fans took to Twitter to react to the loss at home. They are sick and tired of the disappointing losses. It feels as if this is a reoccurring theme.

@Athletics Same old crap from the same old crap team

The Detroit Tigers have one of the worst records in baseball, but the Athletics made them look like a playoff team this afternoon.

@Athletics Your team is so dog 💩. Making the tigers look good.

The Athletics have one of the lowest payrolls in baseball at $48 million. Fans are comparing their talent level to a AA Minor League team.

@Athletics You field a AA team, expect AA results.

Before the All-Star break, the Oakland Athletics defeated the Houston Astros, who have one of the best records in baseball.

@Athletics We beat the Astros lose to the Tigers lmao wtf

Overall, this has been a tough year for Athletics fans as the team is rebuilding for the future. They will look to split the doubleheader this afternoon.
