A's vs. Indians Series # 20

Okay, we're 3 and 1 in June. This has been around the time when this team starts heating up and going on one of their amazing 2nd half runs. And the starting pitching has been the key: Barry Zito has been lights out surrendering just 1 run in his last 28 or so innings. Rich Harden is back from the IR, and pitched well in his last outing. This will ease the burden on our overworked bullpen, which is still missing The Duke and Joe Kennedy.

Here's the pitching match-ups:

Gm 1: LHP, Barry Zito (5-3, 2.87 ERA) vs. RHP, Jake Westbrook (5-3, 5.00 ERA)

Gm 2: RHP, Joe Blanton (5-5, 5.21 ERA) vs. RHP, Paul Byrd (4-4, 5.43 ERA)

Gm 3: RHP, Kirk Saarloos (2-4, 5.04 ERA) vs. RHP, Jason Johnson (3-5, 5.92 ERA)

My prediction: We take 2 of 3 from the Indians finishing the road trip with a 5 and 1 record. This should bring us back over .500.

LET'S-GO-OAK-LAND !!

I honestly think we can outpitch the Tribe in every game. Starters are superior to the Indians' starters this series, and our bullpen is better. Question is will we hit the ball....I honestly think we NEED to sweep this series, with series vs. New York. I see us taking all 3.

Nothing but good news ahead... let's hope so. Milton Bradley is back and was cleared to play in the Cleveland series.

Eric Chavez just rocketed a 2 run bomb to tie the game at 6-6.

Damn! great win. We needed that. Z was a little off today, but I'm glad he got the win. This makes up for all the no-decisions he's gotten this yr.
