6 full innings into the game, the A's bats have equalled their output from the last time they faced Vicente Padilla, avoiding the scoreboard. While Dan Haren hasn't imploded as Zito did during that 14-0 dustup, the A's are down 3-0, thanks in part to Matt Stairs' 2-run shot, and some questionable strike calls that have got fans, players and coaches grumbling.
Yet, the Rangers DP to end the sixth could be the start of something new. Time to turn things around. Go A's!
