by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After going the first 13 games without a save opportunity, Athletics pitcher Tyler Clippard converted his first save chance of the season during the A's 6-3 win over the Angels on Monday.

Clippard entered the game with a three-run lead in the ninth inning, but walked two batters before recording the final out. He also struck out one batter.

Athletics relief pitcher Tyler Clippard tagged for home run in loss
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Athletics relief pitcher Tyler Clippard made one mistake in Sunday's 8-7 loss to the Mariners, but the mistake cost Oakland the game.

Clippard worked just one inning in relief in the 10th inning and got the first two hitters out on just five pitches. But then, when Nelson Cruz stepped in the box, Clippard left over the plate that Clippard said just "leaked" in the middle, reports MLB.com.

"It was probably a matter of inches as far as execution goes," Clippard said. "But that's what baseball is all about. Not a good enough pitch."

Clippard get stuck with the loss and a 3.00 ERA to begin the season.

"We're fine," Clippard said. "Essentially, the brunt of damage, Cruz did. Couple mistake pitches and some defensive stuff that we got to clean. Other than that, we've been fine."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said it will be a priority to make sure closer Tyler Clippard pitches in Thursday's game against the Rangers, according to CSN California.

Tyler Clippard to open season as A's closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Friday reliever Tyler Clippard will open the season as the team's closer with Sean Doolittle sidelined with a shoulder injury. Melvin added Dan Otero will be the right-handed setup man and left-hander Eric O'Flaherty will also be used in setup situations.

Clippard was the Nationals' full-time closer in 2012, recording 32 saves in 37 chances. He spent the last two seasons in a setup role. He has 34 career saves over eight MLB seasons.

Athletics likely to open season with Tyler Clippard closing
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Athletics will likely use Tyler Clippard as the closer to open the year, according to MLB.com.

With Sean Doolittle expected to be sidelined following a shoulder injury, Clippard is in line to take over the ninth inning role. Manager Bob Melvin seemed to agree, though he wouldn't make the announcement official just yet. "We have several guys that have closed," Melvin said. "I'm not going to say right now that [Clippard] is the closer, but he's definitely a guy we're looking to potentially be the guy coming out in the ninth."

While Clippard has mostly been used as a setup man during his career, he did save 32 games with the Nationals back in 2012. He didn't lose his job due to ineffectiveness, and has been solid in any role over his career. 

Clippard said he would take on whatever role the team asks. "Whatever role they want me to do, I will do wholeheartedly and embrace," Clippard said.

The 30-year-old posted a 2.18 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last year.
