Like Last Night, Except With More Runs

Let's see. Add four more Indians runs, add one more A's run and you basically have last night's game. In case you missed that one, the A's dropped the game to Cleveland. And they dropped another one to Cleveland tonight. But hey, the Indians win it and thanks to the A's, are now over .500! Oh right. I keep forgetting. We are A's fans.

So what are our highlights? Well, um, Neil Wagner made his Major League debut, allowing a hit and striking one out in his inning of work? Cahill pitched into the sixth (allowing five earned runs, so that's not good)? Ryan Sweeney struck out on the only three pitches he saw; yay? Matsui, Pennington and Suzuki had two hits each (accounting for most of the A's hits), and Crisp and Suzuki each drove in a run?

To be fair, it was a 2-1 game going into the sixth inning, when Cahill surrendered a one-out walk and a 2-run homerun. He hit the next batter and was replaced by De Los Santos, who...promptly gave up a homerun. That wasn't good. That four run inning would be enough to put the game away for the Tribe.

Good thing this is a four-game series. The A's will try again tomorrow night. I promise that the game will be less boring (it can't miss).
