Oakland Athletics Team Report - April 27
(Sports Network) - The Oakland Athletics, winners of three straight and four
of their last five games, will look for the sweep today as they face the
Indians in the finale of a three-game set at the Coliseum.
Righthander Tim Hudson will head to the mound for the Athletics, who are
looking to make it four wins in a row.
Hudson pitched well in his last outing, allowing just three runs on three hits
and four walks over 7 2/3 innings against the Tigers at the Coliseum on
Tuesday. Hudson did not figure in the decision.
The Georgia native has had tough times against the Indians in his career,
posting a 1-2 record and a high ERA of 7.83 in only six starts.
Last night, Chris Singleton finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a run
batted in to lead the Athletics to a 6-3 win over the Indians.
Mark Ellis added two hits and two runs batted in for Oakland, which has taken
the first two of this three-game home set with Cleveland. Miguel Tejada, Scott
Hatteberg and Eric Byrnes all stroked two hits in the win.
Chad Bradford (2-2) earned the victory for Oakland. He threw 1 2/3 innings
with one strikeout. Starter John Halama had a no-hitter through 6 1/3 frames,
the longest a pitcher has taken a no-hitter so far this season.
Keith Foulke notched his sixth save of the season after pitching the ninth.
