Kazmir (4-5) was unable to hold onto a lead in this one, as he was staked to an early 1-0 lead and a 2-1 advantage, but a two-run sixth inning by the Royals led to Kazmir's undoing. 

"You make mistakes and they capitalize on them," Kazmir said, per MLB.com. "That's a good team, and that's what good teams do."

Kazmir allowed a leadoff walk in the eighth inning before being lifted for a reliever. Two batters later, Albert Pujols cracked a two-run home run, with one of the runs being charged to Kazmir.

"Probably took a couple innings to settle in, then he pitched as well as we've seen him early in the season the way he was pitching," A's manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "He mixed his pitches really well today, a few curveballs and changeups to slow them down. Fastball both sides, mixed in some cutters. He was pretty unpredictable today."

This was Kazmir's fourth quality start since the beginning of May, but he still owns a solid 2.70 ERA on the season. He'll make his next start on Saturday at home against the Royals.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Kazmir exited Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Tigers with a shoulder injury. After the game Kazmir went to have an MRI on the affected shoulder. Melvin said the injury began to progress as the game went on. 

"He probably felt he could continue to pitch," said A's manager Bob Melvin to MLB.com, "but it didn't make any sense to.

"I think it just started bothering him as the game went along. You could tell he was a little bit uncomfortable after the last pitch when he was coming off the mound. His body language wasn't great, so we didn't want to push him."

Kazmir left the game after the third inning. He finished with no earned runs, three walks and four strikeouts. He now has a 2.93 ERA.

Could the Astros make a move for Kazmir, Buchholz or Lohse?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
