Oakland Athletics Team Report - May 2
(Sports Network) - Former Yankee Ted Lilly will take the hill tonight for the
Athletics, as Oakland and New York begin a three-game set at Yankee Stadium.
Lilly, who was traded by the Yankees last July in the three-team deal that
landed Jeff Weaver in the Bronx, was 8-12 in his time with the Yankees and
pitched to a 4.61 ERA.
The 27-year-old southpaw is 2-0 this season with a 3.03 ERA and is coming off
a win in his last outing. After three straight no-decisions, Lilly limited the
Cleveland Indians to two runs on six hits over 7 2/3 innings in a 5-2 win on
Lilly, who has struck out 24 and walked just eight in 32 2/3 innings this
season, will be making his first appearance against his former team.
Oakland, which is tied for the AL West lead with the Seattle Mariners, comes
into the contest on the heels of having its season-high six-game winning
streak stopped on Thursday by the Chicago White Sox, 7-5. Miguel Tejada and
Eric Chavez homered for the A's, who fell for just the third time in their
last 12 games.
John Halama (1-2) took the loss, allowing six runs -- four earned -- on nine
hits in 3 1/3 innings.
Tejada, the reigning AL MVP, hit his first homer in more than a week and is
just 8-for-61 in his last 15 games, as he has seen his average dip to .164.
