Being just a little less than perfect finally caught up to Dallas Braden
in the bottom of the 6th inning, as Kenry Morales knocked in Eric Aybar to give the Angels
a 1-0 lead over the A's, followed by a three-run line drive into the seats from Hideki Matsui
, who opened up the game and made it 4-0. The four-run lead exceeds the total number of hits from the A's thus far, who have only scratched out three against Joe Saunders
, including two hits from DH Josh Donaldson
. Onto the 7th, as the A's consider possibly scoring.
