Right-handed reliever allows two home runs in loss to Mariners
By Trevor Hass
OAKLAND -- Back in May, Evan Scribner was a reliable setup man for the A's and at one point owned a 1.10 ERA. Now his ERA lies at 3.64, as he's allowed 15 earned runs in 25 2/3 innings since May 8.
Scribner's most recent struggles came in a 9-5 loss to the Mariners at the Coliseum on Friday. He gave up four runs (three earned) in two innings, surrendering two-run homers to both Nelson Cruz and Brad Miller in a rocky eighth inning.
