Losing pitcher Bartolo Colon allowed four runs on 12 hits in 6.2 innings while striking out four. He is now 3-4 on the season. The A's only managed five hits and could not get a big hit with two chances late in the game.
In the sixth inning, the A's loaded the bases on walks by Cliff Pennington and Josh Reddick and a single by Jemile Weeks. But the threat was ended when Seth Smith struck out. In the eighth inning, the A's had runners on the corners, but pinch hitter Jonny Gomes grounded out to second. Beyond that, the A's did not do much against Santana, who struck out nine.
Good: N/A. Nothing good about being shut out and having your starting pitcher allow 12 hits in less than seven innings.
