There was a lot to cram into Wednesday’s paper on tonight’s 6-4 A’s win over the Angels. Not all of it made it in, so here’s a few leftover details:
–Trevor Cahill had plenty of supporters who made the trip up from the San Diego area to watch his major league debut. As of about 30 minutes after the game, he didn’t have any keepsakes, however. No lineup card or game ball or anything. Maybe that will come after his first victory, which he’d probably prefer anyway.
“I was more nervous (Monday night) than today with the game itself,” Cahill said. “It couldn’t come soon enough.”
Overall, his five innings were pretty good considering he was constantly working out of jams.
“For his first game, I thought he handled himself pretty well,” A’s manager Bob Geren said. “I didn’t see him nervous or rattled by being in that situation.”
–Eric Chavez had one RBI, giving him 777 for his career and moving past Reggie Jackson for seventh place in A’s franchise history.
That’s all for now …
