Rays SP Matt Garza pitched into the eighth inning in Sunday's 3-2 win over the A's. Garza allowed one run and scattered four hits over 7 2/3 innings. The right-hander cruised through the first four innings, allowing only a pair of singles, before briefly losing control and composure in the fifth. After the A's loaded the bases with one out on a single, walk and error, home plate umpire James Hoye called a balk on Garza, forcing in Landon Powell with the tying run. Garza walked to home plate with his arms wide apart and talked briefly with Hoye before going back to the mound where he was met by Jason Bartlett, who tried to calm his teammate down. Garza retired the next two batters to get out of the jam and settled into a groove before being pulled in the eighth inning. "You're going to get upset [but] I didn't think I was in the wrong," said Garza. "I had to keep going and couldn't let that bother me. I really had to go after guys." He walked and struck out three while improving to 13-7 on the season.
