Stat Line of the Night — 6/26/2013 — A.J. Griffin
The Oakland A’s headed into last night’s contest against the Cincinnati Reds having lost in each of A.J. Griffin‘s last five starts. But thanks to a near-flawless performance from Griffin, that losing streak wouldn’t reach six straight.
Giffin got off to a shaky start as he walked a couple of batters in the opening inning, but he would regain his form quick enough to escape that mess and deliver nine innings of shutout ball, allowing only two hits and two walks while striking out seven during the A’s 3-0 victory.
With the win, Griffin improves his record to 6-6 while lowering his ERA to 3.56. And he also earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Wednesday, June 26, 2013.
