That’s the A’s current record with Conor Jackson on the team. Of course they are 0-1 in games he has started, but that’s not his fault.
From the leadoff spot (!) last night, Jackson was 2-for-3 with two singles and a walk, and was on the front end of a perfectly executed hit-and-run with Daric Barton. That’s good.
The rest of the order wasn’t so good though, as Kevin Kouzmanoff saw his 15-game hitting streak come to an end and the A’s only mustered two runs in the 6-2 loss to Chicago.
And Gio Gonzalez was Bad Gio; he just didn’t have it.
Today is the rubber game of the series. Dallas Braden still hasn’t won since the perfecto. I say he’s due.
