Bottom 9: Grounded into fielders choice against Sergio Santos
Final Line: 0-for-5, 4 K, 7 LOB
Notes: After fanning in each of his first four at-bats on Sunday, Willingham had the opportunity to be the hero when he stepped up the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning. With the A’s down one run with runners on first and third and two outs in the inning, Willingham swung at the first offering he saw from Santos, chopping it to White Sox third baseman, Omar Vizquel. His current average and OPS are classic-Willingham: .228 BA, .717 OPS.
Total 2011 Sombreros: 24
