Quote: "It's real convenient. My teammates don't have to go spend an hour and a half to get a haircut and talk baseball with the barber and make sure they leave him tickets."

It's a fact: Oakland's 6-0 victory yesterday was the first two-hitter for the A's since current Oriole Doug Johns had one against the Angels on Sept. 18, 1995.

Who's hot: The Athletics' Rickey Henderson drew his AL-leading 99th and 100th walks, reaching 100 walks for the seventh time in his 20-year career.

Who's not: The Athletics have at least one error in 16 of their last 20 games.

On deck: The White Sox recalled left-hander Tom Fordham from Calgary of the Pacific Coast League and said he will start tonight's game against the Athletics.
