Details…

apparently, Monday’s offensive explosion was an aberration because the bats went quiet again Tuesday night putting up another ZERO.

Mike Pelfrey, wasn’t as bad as his final line.  He was charge with five runs but his defense didn’t help help him. In the top of the fourth, when the A’s scored three, Jose Iglesias dropped a strike from Salty that would have caught the runner at first stealing. Later in the inning, Nick Castellanos dropped a cut-off through from Justin Upton that would have cut the runner down at third.  Both of these runners ended up scoring.

The devil is in the details; shoddy fielding along with bad base running are ingredients for disaster.

Side Note: Justin Upton was flashin leather.  He made a home run saving catch early in the game.
