And here we thought getting swept by the Angels was the worst thing that could happen to the A's. It turns out that Brandon McCarthy getting hit in the head by a line drive and leaving the game in the third is much, much worse. Thoughts/prayers to the McCarthys right now; hope he is okay very soon.
Blackley has taken over the game and the A's squandered a HUGE bases-loaded opportunity as Reddick struck out, but they got one run back. 1-0; bottom of the third.
