The A’s Saturday, defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 5-2, preventing what would have been their six straight loss.
Dallas Braden was mostly effective in 52/3 innings, limiting the Rays to one run on four hits, with two strike outs and three walks.
The offense, although not great, came through in timely fashion, with Nomar Garciaparra driving in three with a three-run double in the fourth, an inning after Travis Buck striking gold with a solo home-run. Also Jason Giambi finally came through, with an insurance run in the seventh, hitting his first dinger, since rejoining the Athletics.
Look for Buck to break out in the upcoming few games, I’m calling it. He just needs the at bats.
Anyone else have a break out prediction?
