A's Score Less Than 1 Run In 4 - 0 Loss To Angels

As the A's proved tonight, it's difficult to win a game when you fail to score a run. Of course facing Jered Weaver of the

Angels is never an easy task, but the A's only amounted 4 hits off of Weaver, which came on singles by Brandon Moss,

Derek Norris, and Brandon Inge, who also had a double. None of the 4 hits were in the same inning, which led to the

Angels 4th shutout of the A's this season.

Jarrod Parker right away struggled as he led the game off by hitting Mike Trout with the pitch. Trout then stole second on a high throw from catcher Derek Norris and advanced to third on a fly ball to center field off the bat of Torii Hunter. Facing Albert Pujols, Parker was able to get out of the inning as Trout was caught in between third and home on a fielder's choice. The Angels would score two runs in the second inning on RBI singles from Erick Aybar and Mike Trout to give them the 2 - 0 lead they wouldn't let go. Parker held the Angels to 2 runs until the top of the seventh when Erick Aybar and Chris Iannetta got on base with back-to-back singles, eventually advancing to second and third, before a single by Torii Hunter eventually brought both runners in to end Parker's outing at 6.2 innings with 9 hits, four earned runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Weaver got the complete-game-shutout and the rest is history as the A's have now lost three in a row.
