8/21/06 Linescore of the Day: Dan Haren

Not very often will you see a pitcher put up this kind of line AND get the win.

Haren can thank Jason Kendall and Bobby Kielty. Batting 1-2, these guys went 7 for 10 and drove in 6. With their help, Oakland came back from 8 runs behind to beat Toronto 12-10.

  1. Starting pitcher Ted Lilly couldn’t hold the lead for Toronto and refused to give the ball to his manager John Gibbons when he came out to remove him. Gibbons got a bloody nose after pushing Lilly in the runway. The starting pitcher didn’t wanna leave the game. It reminded me of when former MLB pitcher Jim Kern told his manager he had alot left when his manager came to remove him from a game, he said he wasn’t tired. His manager replied, “but your outfielders are exhausted”. Earlier in the year Gibbons challenged Shea Hillenbrand to a fight after Shea wrote, “the ship is sinking”.
