The Oakland Athletics ran into a tough Tampa Bay Rays team on Monday night as they were shutout 4-0. This was not the way the Athletics wanted to start there weekday series with the Rays. I suppose this is why the Rays are at the top of the East Division and playing well.
Dana Eveland took the loss and is now 7-7 after throwing five innings and givng up seven hits and four runs. It wasn’t a quality start for Eveland as he was hoping for. He just didn’t have his pitches working for him on Monday night. Eveland also gave up two solo home runs in the game.
Andrew Brown threw two scoreless innings before Santiago Casilla threw a scoreless inning in the 8th inning.
Ryan Sweeney and Jack Cust both had one hit each and that was all the A’s could get at the plate. Not a whole lot to blog about as the A’s were shutdown by Scott Kazmir and the Rays.
