Luzardo put the A’s in a 5-0 hole — three runs coming on Carson Kelly’s homer — and lasted just 2 ⅔ innings before his teammates bailed him out. The bullpen responded by shutting out the Diamondbacks the rest of the way, and the offense responded by scoring seven runs. Every little step forward for Luzardo is a step the A’s hope is a turning point in the promising pitcher’s career.
Obviously, his confidence is off the charts right now so it seems like he does something every day to contribute to a win."
Jed Lowrie tied the game with a three-run homer and Seth Brown hit a go-ahead home run in the 8th in a 7-5 win for the A's
