Jed Lowrie exits after getting hit in foot
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie was hit in the foot by a pitch in his first at-bat Sunday against the Phillies, but the Athletics didn't remove him from the game until the fifth inning. Nick Punto took his place.

"He's all right," manager Bob Melvin told MLB.com. "Just got it pretty good on the foot. As a shortstop you have to have your range, and on the ball in the hole he was having a little trouble getting over there."

Lowrie is day to day.

He will try to turn it around Friday in Texas in his final start of the regular season.

Drew Pomeranz earns the no decision
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz turned in a scoreless start Saturday against the Phillies.

Pomeranz allowed one hit over five scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. Pomeranz was masterful, giving up his only hit in the first inning. He actually loaded the bases during the frame after walking and hitting a batter with a pitch, but was able to get out of it. Pomeranz would settle in at that point, tossing three perfect innings. He allowed a walk in the fifth, but got out of it without giving up any runs. Pomeranz was pulled after throwing 86 pitches.

Pomeranz earned the no-decision for his performance. He’ll take on the Rangers if he gets another start.

Jon Lester turns in fantastic start Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
