6.6: OAK/BAL postgame -- Glen Kuiper and Ray Fosse
Glen and Ray break down Gio Gonzalez's outing against the Orioles.
-- I think it at this point when you're in a losing streak in -- and everything is so magnified to really struck me. Every mistake you make it caution and today Q was a little shaky early He was terrific as He settled down. But to at this point when you're when you're in a losing streak you just can't make it a mistake. But I think what the pitchers are doing the starters have done such a great job all season David GO. Retired his last eleven that He faced tonight is just that He struggled early first couple of innings and -- nobody's trying to put up zeros because the offense really has not been there. For him throughout the season and this is a surprising pitching. Three very good curve ball to grow in the first inning. So the fans what they got the base hit but then in the second inning. It just did not work well for him but after that settled down started throw some great pitches the pitches that were accustomed to -- And I think it just took up a little bit of time coming out of the bullpen to get settled in and for whatever reason we don't know maybe a little bit added pressure again just because he's trying to help the a's in a losing streak but. There's no doubt what the -- need to do right now is when McCain because. The longer you let losing streak all the hard it is the more pressure putter gets up to try to do things that normally you don't even think about doing and that. You stand what is try to score some runs to get that on the pitching good pitching and and that it isn't the losing streak events so the Dodgers try to do tomorrow night because if that did happen and I. And the Orioles open was terrific He retired everybody they've they've faced. You aren't Johnson Greg eleven guys. Eleven up to eleven down so that was a big story is well these. Where they were close at fortitude that open never gave them a chance they need allow these -- Good news though Adam Rosales is back in a two run home run like to see his and energy and that we hope Mark Ellis is OK after -- because of the strained. Hamstring I think was the races size or the base in his first at -- so cup for the new guys up and now we we heard there are going to be some changes. It another going to be. These changes but that we've expected out of results to come back but I think Kevin Kouzmanoff was shocked for himself as well as everybody else but. The -- just try to do some things to find a way to win some games because. The expectations start of the season run a lot more a lot better than what the -- -- today.
