Darrell Rasner was tough last night. He pitched around infield bleeders and leadoff doubles and he got big outs with runners on third.
Allowing only two runs in eight innings is usually good enough to win. It didn’t work out that way, but Rasner remained focused.
“I always stick with the same approach,” he explained to reporters after the game. “I know these guys are going to score runs. It’s a matter of time before they break out. I can’t change what I’m doing.”
A mark in the win column is the only change he needs in Oakland.
