A hard-fought win by Dana Eveland and the Oakland A's against Seattle tonight. Eveland gave up three in the first on a three-run homer by the Mariners' Richie Sexson. Then he scattered hits the rest of the way, giving up no runs over the next 4.1 innings. The A's climbed back into the game thanks to Wes Bankston's two-run homer and took a 4-3 lead before Eveland's departure in the sixth. The bullpen held Seattle scoreless the rest of the way, handing Eveland his seventh win.
Fantasy Impact: Eveland threw just 53 of his 100 pitches for strikes, but found a way to keep his team in the game after a rough start. That's the reason he's 7-5 on the year. He's a solid, if not spectacular, fantasy starter.
