The higher the stakes, the more Jeff Samardzija seems to relish the competition and it's reflected in everything he does on the mound.
Jeff Samardzija allowed five hits in seven innings, and the A's drove in six runs in the first as they went on to beat the Angels 8-4.
Jason Hammel is back with the A's and should slip back into the rotation, but Bob Melvin says a relief appearance is not out of the question.
