After winning the first two games to start their four games series against the Blue Jays, the A's lost the final two to earn a split.
Tommy Milone struggled yet again, allowing six runs in six innings, and now has a .500 record at 9-9.
It wasn't as if the A's didn't provide him with enough offense. Josh Reddick broke a 1-1 tie in the third with a monster three-run shot into right field, putting the A's up 4-1.
But Milone gave it up quickly. He promptly gave up a two run shot to Edwin Encarnacion in the fourth, and allowed three more runs to score on a series of hits with two outs in the fifth. Just like that, it was 6-4 Blue Jays.
The A's would battle back, and cut the lead to one after a Coco Crisp RBI double in the seventh, but that would be it. The Jays bullpen allowed just the one run in three innings, and the A's fell 6-5 to the Blue Jays.
With the loss, Oakland is now 58-50 and is still tied for the top wild card spot in the AL. They have a huge series coming up against the Angels, who are trailing them by just a half game.
