Another well-pitched game for the Oakland Athletics came with a price.
The Oakland Athletics can win a lot of different ways, as evidenced by their two-year hold on the AL West division title.
As much as Scott Kazmir won over Oakland fans with his dazzling debut, new Athletics closer Jim Johnson is losing them with another ninth-inning meltdown.
Corey Kluber was already struggling with his command when he was forced to take a nearly five-minute break for a replay challenge. The long delay sure didn't help his cause.
Scott Kazmir will have to wait at least one more day to make his debut for the Oakland Athletics and pitch against his former team.
Scott Kazmir pitched two-hit ball into the sixth inning, Josh Reddick hit a two-run homer and the Oakland Athletics beat the San Francisco Giants 4-0 on Thursday night.
Capsules of American League West teams, listed in order of finish last year:
Scott Kazmir recovered from a shaky start and Stephen Vogt hit a pair of two-run homers to lead the Oakland Athletics over a Seattle Mariners split squad 6-5 on Saturday.
The Oakland Athletics scratched left-hander Scott Kazmir from their spring game against the Chicago Cubs on Monday due to left triceps stiffness.
Yordano Ventura struck out six in 4 1-3 innings and Salvador Perez hit a two-run home run, leading the Kansas City Royals to a 3-1 win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday.
Scott Kazmir is walking into a different situation with the Oakland Athletics and a most different role.
The defending AL West champion A's lost ace Bartolo Colon but bolstered a bullpen that could be MLB's best in 2014.
Struggling left-hander Scott Kazmir was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Angels because of shoulder fatigue following Sunday's 2-1 loss to Seattle.
He left with tightness in his left triceps and said it wouldn't cost him a start.
"It's exciting to have guys follow up a quality start, one after another, one through five. It really is exciting," Kazmir said. "We just want to keep going out there and keep making quality pitches and quality outings, all of us."
