Please answer this question re Friday night's game

Please answer this question.

In the eighth inning Friday, Emil Brown made an error with two outs. My question is: shouldn't the runs Blanton allowed after that be unearned?

 PS - For the record, I am an A's fan, and Blanton does pitch for my fantasy team.

Also, I believe that if Harden can stay healthy, the A's can win the division. The pitching is excellent, particularly Harden, Blanton and Eveland. The young hitters are reminiscent of the 2003 Marlins. It would be helpful if Chavez were to return, particularly at full strength or close to it, but the most important piece is Harden, because he is an ace when healthy. That allows Blanton to be a strong number two, Eveland a strong number three, Gaudin and Duchscherer a pretty good four and five.
