Oakland Athletics (2-4) vs Minnesota Twins (4-3)
Target Field --Minnesota
Brett Anderson (0-1, 34.71) vs Scott Baker (1-0, 1.50)
Dallas Braden (1-0, 3.86) vs Brian Duensing (1-0, 3.86)
Gio Gonzalez (1-0, 12.60) vs Nick Blackburn (0-1, 81.00)
Game 1: The struggles continue in O-Town. Despite a great pitching performance from starter Brett Anderson, the A's bats couldn't come alive and Anderson suffered his second loss of the season by a score of 2-1. Not sure what else needs to happen here but when you rely on the long ball for success you will find yourself in the basement of the division quicker then you think.
Oakland: Coco Crisp, 1-4
Minnesota: Justin Morneau, 3-3, RBI, 3 2B, R

Brian Fuentes Sent to Indians
The A's kept busy and sent relief pitcher and former closer Brian Fuentes to Cleveland in exchange for Orlando Cabrera and Chris Perez. "We needed to fill a hole at second and when the Indians called about Fuentes we had to pull the trigger" GM said. He was asked if more moves are to be expected and he said that we can count on it. If the A's pitching doesn't get on track will we see one of their young stars moved? Time will tell.
