Box Score: Athletics 7, Indians 0

It was Bartolo Colon yesterday, and it was another former Indian in Coco Crisp today. Crisp hit a 3-run blast and had 5 total RBI as the Athletics completed the three-game sweep and demolished the Indians 7-0. Justin Masterson got torched for 7 runs and 9 hits in another abysmal outing for our number one starter. Ubaldo Jimenez will face former Indian Kevin Milwood tomorrow night in Seattle to open a three-game set. The Indians have now lost five in a row and 18 of 22.

    I’m just glad Acta’s finding a way to get Lillibridge in the games. He’ll be all set for next year!

  • Such an embarrassment.

  • mgbode

    agreed. not only are we losing (and often) but we cannot even make games competitive anymore. Acta is losing any chance he had at staying by the game right now.

  • mgbode

    mark this game on your calendar. Lillibridge took a walk.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    The only walk of the game too! He’s the definition of team player.
