Coco Crisp flew out as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Crisp has missed the last two starts with a hamstring issue, but it's a good sign that he felt well enough to pinch-hit. It's possible he'll be back in there Wednesday, though the A's could waiting until after Thursday's off day.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia told the media after Tuesday's game that Kole Calhoun (ankle) is heading for the disabled list.

Calhoun will join Josh Hamilton on the shelf after painfully rolling his ankle running through first base in the 11st inning. "I just rolled it and it hurt real bad," said Calhoun, who was on crutches after the game. "It’s just a freak thing, you know?" We won't know Calhoun's timeline until he's further evaluated. The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser wondered on Twitter whether Los Angeles could target Sam Fuld, who was recently waived by the A's. Unless they bring somebody else in, Collin Cowgill is likely in line for more at-bats in the near future.

Brandon Belt continued his assault against NL pitching on Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with a walk, double and RBI against the Dodgers.

Belt's ninth-inning RBI double off Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen forced the game into extra innings. The 25-year-old native Texan looks poised to top last year's breakout campaign. He's batting .298/.322/.596 with five homers (third in the NL) and 10 RBI in 13 games.

Juan Uribe finished 3-for-5 with a double, a solo homer and two runs scored in the Dodgers' victory over the Giants on Tuesday.

Coming off a surprisingly good 2013 season in which he accrued 4.1 WAR, Uribe is hitting the ball on the button right now. He's slashing .379/.379/.621 with two homers and eight doubles thus far. That slash line is going to plummet when this hot streak subsides, because he's ridden it despite a truly dreadful 14/0 K/BB rate.
Apr 16 - 3:22 AM

Kenley Jansen blew his second save of the season by coughing up Brandon Belt's RBI ninth inning double on Tuesday in a 3-2, 12-inning loss against the Giants.

Belt's slice down the left field line scored Angel Pagan from first. Jansen has allowed four runs over 7 1/3 innings (4.91 ERA) in the early going, and he's allowing way too many baserunners with a 2.05 WHIP, but his struggles won't continue. The fireballer owns a 14/3 K/BB rate and has whiffed at least one batter in all 10 of his appearances.
Apr 16 - 3:20 AM

Tim Lincecum bounced back against the Dodgers on Tuesday, spinning five innings of one-run ball in a no-decision.

The right-hander whiffed five, walked none, and scattered five hits. Well, mostly scattered. Lincecum was one pitch away from escaping the second inning and ostensibly throwing five shutout frames, but a full-count offering to Juan Uribe ended up a souvenir to a lucky fan in the left field bleachers. Lincecum, who slashed his ERA from 9.90 to 7.20 this evening, leads the Giants into San Diego on Sunday.
Apr 16 - 3:19 AM

Josh Beckett tossed five shutout innings despite walking five batters in Tuesday's no-decision against the Giants.

While the veteran missed bats -- giving up just two hits -- he was extremely fortunate to dance around all those free passes. That being said, this was an encouraging outing after the Texan was thoroughly unimpressive in his 2014 debut against the Tigers last time out. He has surrendered four earned runs over nine frames in two starts. Beckett will take a 4.00 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into a date with the struggling Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Apr 16 - 3:18 AM

Jim Johnson earned the win Tuesday night against the Angels by tossing two scoreless innings of relief in the 11-inning, 10-9 win.

Owners that have held onto Johnson should consider this evening an unmitigated success. To make it possible, Mike Trout had to crush a two-run homer off Sean Doolittle in the ninth to force extras. Once there, Johnson tossed a scoreless 10th and 11th, striking out one, walking one, and giving up a single. He's tossed five straight scoreless innings, earning the victory on consecutive nights, and has to be nearing the ninth inning discussion again.
