The A's got a win today. It doesn't matter how. Oh, it does?
Well then. The A's scored early off Halladay, but were stifled the rest of the game until they finally broke through in the eleventh for the win.
The early runs might have held up, but Huston Street allowed not one, but two solo homeruns in his failed bid for the save, forcing Ruddy Lugo to pitch two scoreless innings, giving the A's the chance to come back.
Hanahan drove in the winning run, Piazza and Scutaro also drove in runs, and DiNardo pitched effectively, if not well, in his five innings of work today.
In other news, Esteban Loaiza was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers today; a move which probably looks like a good one for him, at least regarding the pennant race this year.
The A's enjoy a rare home off-day tomorrow, before Detroit comes to town. That should be fun.
Final Score: A's: 5, Blue Jays 4 in 11
