The Athletics have really struggled with the bats lately. Dan Straily (6-5, 4.41 ERA) has struggled since coming back from Triple-A Sacramento, allowing nine runs in 16 innings. He has lost all three of his starts and failed to make it out of the fifth inning in either of the last two. Mat Latos (10-3, 3.38 ERA) has won four of his past six decisions and pitched well in his last start against San Diego on Tuesday, giving up just two runs. He is 6-1 at home this season, posting a 3.54 ERA in nine games. Oakland is 1-4 over their last five games and in their last 22 games, are hitting just .212, scoring an average of 3.2 runs per game. Latos has been very steady for the Reds and they could use that after getting destroyed by the Cardinals in two of three games last weekend. Latos has given up two or fewer runs in each of his last three starts.
