"The man behind the plate had a bad inning. Everything that was a strike became a ball. It's too bad when the game gets away from you like that. Johan [Santana] deserves a lot more respect than that."

Athletics: Closer Huston Street slightly strained his left hamstring during pregame drills on Saturday and likely will miss several days. He is 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA, with four saves in six chances.

Mariners: 3B Adrian Beltre was back in the lineup after missing the previous five games with a left hamstring injury. He was injured last Sunday against the Nationals.

White Sox: RHP Orlando Hernandez likely will go on the 15-day disabled list today because of tightness in his right shoulder.
