As the Oakland Athletics took on the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday, former New York Yankees prospect JP Sears made his Oakland debut in the starting lineup.

The A’s ultimately lost 5-4 in 12 innings, but the southpaw pitched well, allowing just two earned runs over five innings of work.

On August 1, the Mets acquired Sears, Ken Waldichuk, Luis Medina, and Cooper Bowman from the Yankees in exchange for Frankie Montas and Lou Trivino.

The 26-year-old Sears made his Major League Baseball debut with the Yankees this season, and in seven games (two starts), he went 3-0 with a 2.05 ERA. In 2022, he started 11 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where his record was 1-1 with an earned run average of 1.67. (nine starts). He was acquired by the Yankees on November 18, 2017, along with right-hander Juan Then, from the Mariners for right-hander Nick Rumbelow. He had been drafted by Seattle in the 11th round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of The Citadel.

Wednesday’s loss was the A’s fifth in a row, and they are now 41-71, last in the AL West. Sears was credited with a no-decision.
