Anderson Eyeing Starting Rotation (Game Recap)

White Sox 5, A’s 4

Brett Anderson put together a pretty good start today (at least compared to most of his competition!), as he went 4.1 with 7 hits and 2 runs (4 SO, 0 walks). You would have to think this makes the case for him, wouldn’t you?

Andrew Bailey followed up with a great inning plus, retiring 5, with one strikeout. Wuertz ran into some trouble in his inning, allowing two hits and a run, and Schroder gave up two hits and two runs in his inning.

The A’s collected eight hits in their turn at the plate: Davis, Cabrera, two from Cust, Galarraga, and two from Crosby, and a late hit from Hannahan, who closed the gap 5-4 in the top of the ninth inning, as the A’s fell just short. In a bit of good news, Mark Ellis did play 2nd base today, and Davis made another sparkling catch out in the field.

Some interesting news out of the Angels' camp today, especially for those of us who were counting on a Duchscherer/Lackey match-up to kick off the season. Looks like neither one will make it.


Angels ace John Lackey has been shut down because of elbow tightness, an injury that knocked the right-hander out of Friday's exhibition start and could jeopardize his scheduled opening-day start against Oakland on April 6.

It should be an interesting AL West race, if nothing else. The A's are off tomorrow, but will play Friday night.
