'Fortunate' A's edge Dodgers

BY foxsports • June 18, 2009

The Oakland Athletics played one of their worst defensive games of the season, and their starter came within one pitch of walking four straight batters in the first inning.

Somehow, everything turned out all right.

Rajai Davis and Jack Cust homered in the third, rookie Trevor Cahill overcame his early bout of wildness and Oakland snapped a four-game skid with a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night despite giving up three unearned runs.
