A. J. Griffin SP OAK Sep 23 '12
A.J. Griffin pitched poorly but was bailed out by his teammates Sunday, as he gave up four runs on seven hits and three walks over 6 1/3 frames in a 5-4 win over the Yankees.
The A's relievers allowed four baserunners and no runs over the final 4 2/3 innings, and the offense did enough to let Griffin off the hook. After a terrific start to his career, Griffin has now put up two straight clunkers. He'll have a good shot to bounce back against the Mariners next weekend, though.
