News: Samardzija was dominant Wednesday, pitching eight scoreless innings and allowing four hits while striking out 10 in a no-decision against the Rangers. Impact: Only four runners reached base versus Samardzija, who left the game with a 1-0 lead after eight innings. Unfortunately, closer Sean Doolittle imploded to the tune of five runs in the ninth. The right-hander's gone winless over his last four games despite allowing only five runs in 30 innings (1.50 ERA). Samardzija might have to throw a complete game to seal a victory Monday against the Angels.(RotoWire, )

News: Samardzija tossed seven shutout innings Wednesday versus the White Sox, scattering six hits with two walks and six strikeouts in a no-decision. Impact: Samardzija left the game with a one-run lead, but it was blown in the eighth when setup man Luke Gregerson coughed up two runs. The right-hander is winless in his last three starts despite surrendering only five runs in 22 innings (2.05 ERA) over that span for the struggling Athletics. Samardzija takes the hill Tuesday at home against the Rangers.(RotoWire, )

News: Samardzija (4-5) took the loss Friday against the Astros as he allowed four runs on six hits through seven innings, while striking out nine hitters. Impact: It was a strange night for Samardzija as he got hurt by Jon Singleton and Chris Carter home runs, but was dominant otherwise. Samardzija stayed ahead of hitters, not allowing a single walk, but just had a couple of poor-placed pitches that did him in.(RotoWire, )
