Darren Oliver, Angels Pitchers Fold to A's, 15-10

A wild game of Who Can Pitch Worse ended with the Los Angeles Angels winning that dubious contest.

John Lackey finally received some run support, as the Angels opened up a 9-2 lead in the 4th on a string of singles followed by Bobby Abreu's 2-run home run. But Lackey struggled, giving up 6 runs in 5 innings. Even so, he was still on track for the win until Darren Oliver surrendered the tying run on a wild pitch in the 6th inning.

Gary Matthews Jr. came through in the 7th with a single that scored Howie Kendrick to put the Angels ahead. But then in the 8th inning, Kurt Suzuki singled off Jason Bulger to tie the game, and then the A's broke the game open, capped by Mark Ellis' 3-run home run to put the A's out of reach.
