A's warm up in Hotlanta
Barry Zito didn't pitch that well, but he'll surely take his third win. After Zito allowed four hits, six walks and four runs in five innings, Mark Kotsay doubled home the go-ahead run in the sixth. Eric Chavez homered twice and drove in four runs to continue his blazing hot start to June.

After Horacio Ramirez allowed four runs on five hits and four walks in five innings, the bullpen struggled again with Adam Bernero allowing six runs in one inning and Blaine Boyer giving up a run in his Major League debut. Andruw Jones hit his 15th homer in the fifth, his third in the past two days.
