Open Thread: Game 22 - A's vs. Rays (3)

In the most frustrating, maddening ways possible, the A's have wasted a multitude of chances to score, including recording a single, double, and a walk in the same inning without scoring. Probably discouraged by this, Braden completely fell apart in the fifth, surrendering 3 runs to put the A's in a 5-2 deficit and knocking himself out of the game.

It's still the bottom of the fifth; Tyson Ross has loaded the bases with no one out and just wild pitched one of the runs home. Expect more runs.
