A's Unlikely To Score In Unlimited Extra Innings; Fall to Angels in 11

That's how many runs they scored.

Well, that was disappointing. The A's fall under .500 tonight and lose the series to the Angels because their offense basically....sucks. After getting 1-hit last night, the A's are three-hit tonight, and it's only because one of those hits was a homerun (Seth Smith) did the game even continue past nine innings. Well, that and Jarrod Parker's seven awesome innings, in which he struck out 8 batters. Cook, Fuentes, and Balfour followed with scoreless innings, and Norberto took the loss, as he gave up two in the eleventh.

You aren't going to win a lot of games with an offensive performance like this:

Strikeout, groundout, walk, flyout.
Single, strikeout, groundout, flyout.
Strikeout, single, groundout, pop-up.
Strikeout, walk, flyout, flyout.
Flyout, pop-up, pop-up.
Groundout, homerun, flyout, flyout.
Flyout, groundout, flyout.
Groundout, flyout, groundout.
Groundout, groundout, walk, groundout.
Flyout, groundout, groundout.
Strikeout, strikeout, walk, strikeout.

That's basically the summation. An incredible pitching performance wasted, and another game in the loss column. The A's badly need some bats in their lineup. Until then, we can hope for better things this weekend against the Yankees.
