Devil Rays vs A's, 8-28 and 8-29

Was lazy about blogging this weekend. I was at Saturday's game and a great game it was. Some costly errors for the A's allowed 4 runs in 1 inning for Hudson, but luckily our bats and a great bullpen secured the lead. Dotel is another nail-biting closer like Koch, but I love the guy. He reminds a bit of Tejada, very emotional and pumped up.

Sunday was another great game. Mulder was looking a bit shaky, I am still looking for a return to pre-AllStar Mulder, who was virtually untouchable. Dotel blew a save, but they do happen from time to time, but luckily McMillon - who has been just dismal as the plate this season - redeemed himself with a walk off HR to win the game.

That's a complete 7 game home sweep, the first time the A's have done that in something like 12 years. The AL West is still a very close race, the only way to stay in the game is to keep winning.
