On the day Trevor Cahill was named to the American League All Star team, it was fitting that fellow youngster Vin Mazzaro went out and dominated a struggling Indians squad in a 3-1 victory. Mazzaro went 7.1 innings, giving up one run, and retired thirteen straight at one point. The win moves the A’s back to within a game of .500 heading into a huge week against the Yankees and Angels leading up to the All Star Break.
