The Athletics were the hotter team heading into their three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels but this tilt has cooled them off considerably. The A's lost by a score of 7-1 on Wednesday to be swept at home by their divisional rivals.
Oakland starter Brandon McCarthy had to leave the game in the fourth inning after a terrifying moment where he was hit in the side of the head with a line drive.
A horrific top of the ninth inning ended up dooming the A's. Maicer Izturis drew a bases-loaded walk, Hunter drove in two runs with an RBI single and Izturis came home on a double-steal as the Angels plated their seventh run of the game.
