It was another frustrating day at the ballpark for the A's as they managed just five hits off the Yankees' pitching staff and were shut out for the eighth this season, falling to the "Bronx Bombers" 2-0.
A's manager Bob Melvin announced Saturday that it would be Travis Blackley taking the ball Monday. The Australian is thankful for what will be his first MLB start since 2007.
Things are trending downward for the Oakland A's; Bartolo Colon's outing and the A's inability to hand with the Yankees are only the latest evidence.
Mark Teixeira had four hits, including the Yankees' fifth and sixth home runs of the series as New York lit up Bartolo Colon to send the A's to a Game 2 loss, 9-2.
Reinforcements are on their way for the A's. Everyone who watched Yoenis Cespedes' batting practice is ready to put him in the lineup and Brandon Inge is producing for the River Cats.
