Game Thread #84: A's vs. Cubs (3)

AJ is keeping the A's in it - but that's not saying much tonight. - USA TODAY Sports

5-5 in the bottom of the fifth — it only took A.J. eight pitches to get through the Cubs' half of the fifth. My father (not a big baseball fan) just glanced at the TV and asked me "Who's this hippie pitching?"
