After six innings of a two-run Houdini performance from Jesse Chavez, the seventh inning was assigned to Fernando Rodriguez. After recording two quick outs, Rodriguez then threw away a two-out bunt single from Adam Eaton, allowing him to advance to third, and Melky Cabrera singled promptly to score Eaton. The error ended up not mattering because Jose Abreu tomahwaked a double to the wall to score Melky Cabrera from first.
Fernando Abad came in to face Adam LaRoche and struck him out with all breaking pitches.
Stretch time as the A's try to rally up some runs, trailing the White Sox 2-4.
