by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2013) Athletics starting pitcher Jarrod Parker overcame an illness to take the mound Monday at home against the Angels. Parker missed Sunday's scheduled start but was able to go a day later for manager Bob Melvin.

Unfortunately, the illness may have played a part in his poor performance as he suffered the defeat. It was an ugly outing for Parker, who fell to 11-7 on the year. He gave up eight runs -- seven earned -- on eight hits and two walks and lasted only 4 1/3 innings for the A's. He struck out three and threw 78 pitches.

Parker's ERA grew to 3.81 with the losing effort as he just wasn't himself on the mound. The 24-year-old had not allowed more than three runs in any of his last eight starts before Monday. In fact, he snapped a string of eight straight quality outings with Monday's loss. The loss was just his first since May 22. Parker will likely make his next scheduled start for the Athletics on Saturday against Minnesota.
