Close that door Andrew Bailey! A’s 5-0 winners over the White Sox.

That’s two-straight and another solid pitching performance by sleeper/rookie pitcher Josh Outman. After a solid 6 2/3inning performance in which Outman gave up only three runs (two earned) on seven hits and Uncharacteristic of Geren, allowed Outman to go out for the seventh with over 105 pitches. Anything can happen tonight A’s fans, Rajai Davis’ two hits proves that! Outman (3-0) struck out two, allowed seven hits and also walked one.

Michael Wuertz and Andrew Bailey finished the Sox off with 2/3 from Wuertz and 1 2/3 for the five-out save for Bailey.

Back-to-back long balls from Crosby and Powell in the fourth followed up by a solo shot from Jason Giambi in the fifth, gave the A’s the 5-0 lead and eventually the win.

    Today was a very impressive performance, especially from Mr. Geren. I was positive when Outman’s pitch count got over 100 that he would be pulled. But Geren let him remain out there and retire two more batters. He also pulled Wuertz out at the right moment. Geren put Bailey in before Wuertz had a chance to blow it. This is a first for me, but I think everyone on this team did well, including Geren.

    Nick, I completely agree with your observations. All-around solid effort.
