Player Notes
Jon Lester suffered his ninth loss of the season, surrendering three runs (two runs) over six innings in Friday's defeat against the Angels.

Advice: The Athletics couldn't get anything going against Jered Weaver, so the two-run home run Lester allowed to Chris Iannetta in the fifth inning was curtains. The lefty gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five on the evening. He has failed to earn a win in each of his last three starts despite pitching reasonably well. Since joining the A's, Lester has a 2.88 ERA with a 37/8 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. He'll face the Mariners at home on Wednesday when he makes his next start.

Jon Lester yielded one run in seven innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Advice: Lester struck out seven and walked one in his most important start with the A's to date. The lone run came in the seventh, an inning that could have proven more damaging if David Freese weren't thrown out trying to stretch a single to begin the frame (the next two batters got hits). Lester is 3-1 with a 2.60 ERA in five outings for his new team.
