After suffering their eighth loss in 10 games on Wednesday, the A's need to regroup ahead of their big division showdown this weekend.
Bob Melvin is making a habit of throwing Fernando Abad into sticky situations and the lefty reliever has done nothing but thrive.
Jeff Samardzija was torched, allowing seven earned runs in just 3.2 innings, as the A's lost 8-5 to split the two-game series with the Mets.
