A's RP Alan Embree will stay in the closer's role despite allowing five ninth-inning runs in Tuesday night's 8-5 loss at Cleveland. "He's done a great job," manager Bob Geren said Wednesday. "He will continue to get the ball in the ninth inning." Embree, who has converted eight of 10 save chances, pitched Monday and Tuesday, throwing a total of 46 pitches.(Updated 06/27/2007).
He should keep the job until Street gets back.
