The Oakland Athletics rallied in the bottom of the ninth inning but came up just short against the Los Angeles Angels. The A’s scored four times in the ninth inning to avoid the shut out as they ended up losing by the score of 6-4. The A’s came up just short of sweeping the league leading Angels in the series as they had won the first two games of the series.
Jack Cust, Aaron Cunningham, Kurt Suzuki, and Carlos Gonzalez all had one rbi each for the A’s at the plate. It’s too bad that it took the A’s until the ninth inning to get the offense kicking and score some runs.
The starting pitcher for the A’s was Josh Outman who took the loss. Outman gave up six hits and three runs in the game in 4 1/3 innings of action. Keith Foulke was terrible as he gave up three solo home runs in a row. Kendry Morales, Mike Napoli, and Brandon Wood went back-to-back-to-back off of Foulke in the seventh inning.
