And that HBP came with two strikes. I swear every time I've seen him do it this year it seems like it's been on a two strike count. Really annoying.

It might be even be better next year with out Johnson and say Hunter, O'Day, and throw in Britton. Matusz might be getting too much to stay in the BP and I can't see paying Johnson more than what he's getting now. BP arms are the easily the most interchangeable in the game and the the one place where teams allocate funds unwisely.

42 Strikes, 15 Balls.

5 of the 9 outs were strikeouts.

I'm not sure what/who exactly constitutes the "back end" of our bullpen at this point, but the relief pitchers that threw tonight did well.

Even Matusz, who walked the only batter that he faced, did so on 11 pitches. I believe that that walk was more of a case of Loney have an excellent plate appearance than Brian choking and/or not pitching well.

Loney did have a tough AB but man I hate the walks. I was really impressed that Buck intended to match up the entire inning and even more impressed that Tommy came in to close the door. He threw strikes and secured the win.

Again ...... I'm still not sure what/who exactly constitutes the "back end" of our bullpen currently, but the relief pitchers once again did very well tonight.

4.33 shutout innings for BOTH the win AND the save.

In the final 4 innings, the Athletics got one single, a hit batsman, and nothing else.

Excellent strikes-to-balls ratio (51 Strikes, 20 Balls.)

The biggest thing is Johnson came in and had a clean inning. Maybe thanks to Manny but still, he was throwing strikes and that's an improvement.

Funny how a win allows you to forget, because I haven't even thought about that play. That was a first pitch breaking ball, so he was mixing it up. Not too effectively though.

Still winging it with regard to the definition of the back end of the bullpen, but the guys that were sent to the mound today did well.

5 shutout innings.

7 strikeouts, 1 walk.

One of the 3 singles that they gave up, only one of them reached the outfield (the other 2 were infield singles.)
