OAKLAND -- Sitting at 99 pitches, Jesse Hahn trotted back out to the mound for the ninth inning at the Coliseum on Monday afternoon, readying to face the heart of the Tigers' lineup. The A's right-hander had a four-run lead in hand, but little room for error in the way of his first career shutout.
"If he walked the first guy of the inning, I was going to get him," said A's manager Bob Melvin. "Maybe the second guy."
