Postgame Andrew Bailey update

Just a quick update on A’s closer Andrew Bailey following the A’s 2-0 win over the Angels. Bailey was visited by manager Bob Geren and assistant trainer Walt Horn after tweaking his left knee while fielding Torii Hunter’s bunt in the ninth inning. The knee has bothered Bailey for much of the season, but he stayed in the game and wasn’t overly concerned about it afterward.

“As soon as I went down (to the field the bunt) it gave out a little,” Bailey said. “It’s just something I’ve got to battle through.”

A win over Ervin Santana isn’t always something you expect from the A’s. They’ll try to make it two in a row tomorrow night as Brett Tomko faces Trevor Bell …
