We're going to the top of the fifth inning. The A's exploded for 4 early runs to stake Scott Kazmir to a 4-0 lead, but a home run cut the score to 4-1 in the fourth and only a sensational double-play by Brett Lawrie got Kazmir out of the inning without further damage. Kazmir might have a hurt ankle. So there's that. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
