Ugh. Just a bad day all around. Andy Oliver went 4.2 innings, giving up five earned runs, striking out three, walking four and giving up a home run. John Wagner of the Toledo Blade noted that Oliver might have had a rough start, but that he didn't have his best stuff and he still "managed to pitch effectively". So that's good, I guess. Scott Sizemore was 1-2 with a double and two walks.
