One-third through the game and the A's lead the Twinkies 6-3. McCarthy, has been victimized by bad luck and Jim Thome's #597. He has thrown 53 pitches and just 12 balls. That said, Carl Pavano meanwhile has been victimized by the running game and his and Drew Butera's inability to stop it, oh and allowing seven straight hits. Also, btw Carl, Ethan Hawke called, he wants his goatee back.
