Justin Masterson picked up win No. 5 Wednesday, limiting the Athletics to three runs on just four hits and two walks over seven frames in the 4-3 victory.
He recorded seven punchouts. All four of the hits Masterson gave up came in Oakland's three-run fourth inning, and he also hit a batter that frame. He was (cough, cough) masterful otherwise, though. The big righty had struggled the last few times out, so this was a nice step in the right direction. He'll bring a 3.67 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into next week start against the Yankees.
