Oakland Athletics Team Report - April 28

Postby WebHamster » Wed Apr 28, 2004 11:00 am

(Sports Network) - The Oakland Athletics try to get back on the winning track this evening when they continue their three-game set against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

On Tuesday, Ruben Sierra's go-ahead two-run double in the eighth inning helped lead the Yankees to a 10-8 come-from-behind win in the opener of the set.

Marco Scutaro went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Eric Chavez smacked a solo home run for the Athletics, who have dropped four straight. Scott Hatteberg and Adam Melhuse each stroked three hits in defeat.

Jim Mecir (0-2) suffered the loss. He allowed five runs on four hits without recording an out. Tim Hudson started for the A's and went seven innings, giving up four runs on five hits, while striking out three.

Heading to the hill tonight for the Athletics will be lefthander Mark Mulder, who is 2-1 on the season with a 2.33 ERA. He comes into tonight's tilt on a winning note after topping the Seattle Mariners on Thursday. In that contest the 26-year-old hurler yielded a pair of runs on five hits over six frames, while striking out five and walking three.

Mulder has faced the Yankees seven times in his career and is 3-4 against them with a 6.39 ERA.

The A's will be playing the second leg of a six-game road trip tonight and are 6-4 away from home this season.

Last year Oakland claimed six of the nine matchups and is 16-12 against the Yankees since the start of the 2001 campaign. The A's also won two of three at Yankee Stadium last season.
