Athletics RP Drew Pomeranz fans side in snagging Saturday save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

If Athletics left-hander Drew Pomeranz was seeking to solidify what appears to be his hold on the closer role, he certainly stated one heck of a case with his arm Saturday night.

Pomeranz struck out the side in Arizona for his third save. He finished with a flourish, fanning Jarrod Saltalamacchia on three pitches.

He has thrown 4 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings and whiffed seven in that stretch.

Athletics SP Aaron Brooks bounced back from dud to pitch well
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Athletics right-hander Aaron Brooks was either motivated by his last start or didn't let it affect him at all Saturday in Arizona.

Brooks couldn't have forgotten the Aug. 12 outing in which he allowed eight runs in 1 2/3 innings in Toronto. He certainly rebounded in style by giving up only two runs on eight hits in six innings to keep his team in a game it eventually won. He finished with one walk and four strikeouts.

He blanked the Diamondbacks through four, but an A.J. Pollock single and double play ball resulted in the only two runs scored against him.

His ERA still stands at a rather disturbing 5.47.

A's summon Aaron Brooks to start Saturday; Max Muncy optioned
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Athletics rookie right-hander Aaron Brooks has been called up and will start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks. Brooks has made four appearances (three starts) since coming over from the Royals in a deal right before the July 31 trade deadline.

His last start came back on August 12, when he was rocked for eight runs over 1 2/3 innings. He pitched in relief two days later and was then sent down to Triple-A. 

To clear room on the roster, infielder Max Muncy was optioned to Triple-A Nashville.

A's SP Felix Doubront (foot) has next start moved back a day
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Athletics pitcher Felix Doubront will have his next start moved back a day, as he is still being bothered by a contusion on his foot.

Doubront sustained the injury in his last outing on Monday when he took a comebacker off of his foot. The injury is not considered serious, but he will have his next start pushed from Sunday to Monday against the Angels, according to Comcast SportsNet California.
