Chad Qualls falls apart in blown save
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros reliever Chad Qualls went for his second save of the season Saturday, but couldn't close the deal in a 4-3 loss to the Athletics.

Qualls recorded just a single out in his save attempt, as the A's jumped all over him in the ninth. He allowed a leadoff home run and then put the next two batters on base via a walk and a hit. He recorded his first out, but then the A's finished the game with consecutive singles to bring across the winning runs.

Qualls now has a 9.00 ERA and 2.80 WHIP in six appearances, spanning five innings of work.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
