Hammel allowed three runs over five inning while striking out six on Friday night against the Mariners.

Hammel gave up two solo homers which hurt his cause, but was fairly effective in his outing. He only threw 78 pitches because the A's needed to pinch hit for him in the sixth after losing their DH when the DH, Derek Norris, had to go into the game to catch. After a tough start with the A's, Hammel has been quite strong his last seven starts, allowing more than three runs only once. He will next toe the rubber on Thursday against the Rangers.

Hammel got a no decision when Luke Gregerson blew the lead after he replaced him in the eighth inning.

Hammel will be skipped through this turn of the roation, reports susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

This is not a surprise as it was hard to see the A's sending Hammel out there to face the now first-place Angels this weekend. Hammel has been an utter mess in his time with the A's with a 1-5 record to go with his 6.75 ERA.

Hammel was lit up on Friday, allowing five earned runs and three homers only over three innings.

No way to sugar coat this one, Hammel has been flat terrible since joining the A's via trade in July. The three homers the Braves hit off him on Friday were all bad mistake pitches right in the middle of the zone. In seven starts since joining the A's, Hammel is now 1-5 with a 6.75 ERA. He had been better his last two starts, but this blowup has to make his hold on a starting rotation spot weak at best. The A's have two off days before his next start, so it is possible they could skip his next turn in the rotation which would be against the second-place Angels.

Hammel (9-9) held the Rays scoreless over 5.2 innings, giving up seven hits while walking four and striking out two in the victory on Tuesday.

Hammel finally gets his first win as a member of the A's. It certainly wasn't a pretty performance, as evidenced by the 11 base runners allowed in just 5.2 innings, but in the end he turned in his best outing since joining the team. The main threat came when the Rays' loaded the bases with two outs in the second, but Hammel would get Kevin Kiermaier to ground out to end the inning. Through five starts with the A's, Hammel has compiled a 7.15 ERA, numbers that he'll be looking to improve upon when he takes on the Twins in his next scheduled start.
