SB Nation's Oakland A's blog, Athletics Nation has a recap for Tuesday's win over the Orioles. The Orioles mounted a late comeback but were put down as the A's managed to put up a couple more runs to seal the win and go up one in the series.
Vin Mazarro may have had an excuse for less-than-stellar play, but they (Athletics Nation) are hesitant to place too much faith into his performance:
I'm not sure if the short notice hurt Vin's performance to night, but he was far from sharp. Yes, he held the Orioles to three hits and one run over six innings, but I'm not a big fan of the six walks. When you walk Julio Lugo twice and hit him in the shoulder blade, you shouldn't really walk out of the game with one run to your name.
