Open Thread: Game 128 - A's at Angels (Cont.)

New, 726 comments

After six full, the A's have scored six full. The Angels, the #1 team in the division, have scored a mere third of that.

Brett Tomko, having reached the 100 pitch mark, was pulled from the game, and Craig Breslow came in, as Geren consulted his "Management by Numbers" playbook and followed the "If pitch count > or = 100, then replace pitcher with Breslow" rule.

But Breslow gave up a near-bomb to Kendry Morales, turning a 6-1 lead to a 6-2 contest. We'll hope that's the end of the nonsense, as the A's bullpen looks to run Tomko's record to 3-0 since joining the A's.
