gigglingone strikes out in debut. A's get shutout for the 12th time this season.

What a thrilling game this almost was. My first night in charge of the game threads, I had visions of a pitchers duel, 1-0 on complete games by both pitchers. Or perhaps an offensive slugfest by the A’s, hitting multiple home runs and featuring cycles by both Weeks AND Allen. Oh, and don’t forget the six stolen bases by Coco. But no, we got this instead.

Sizemore’s leadoff single in the fifth inning was the first hit in my attempted New Thread Mojo, and it was also the last hit of the game for the A’s, and the last inning we would have any action on the basepaths.

Nico popped into the thread to say "droolg239t kl3droolwf9fjw $D(dmw drool"? gsnergl. , which I’m pretty sure is Percoset-speak for "your termination letter is in the mail", so please all, enjoy this post-game recap, because it might be my only one. (Or at least, the only one until the next time everyone decides to go to the game without me……)

A’s play again tomorrow at 7:05pm. Rich Harden goes for his second straight win against his home country’s team. Ricky Romero can’t pitch against us again, so at least that’s something…
