Paul Blackburn shines in tight victory

by Chris Schommer | Athletics Correspondent | Sat, Apr 13th 11:47am EDT

Paul Blackburn delivered a stellar performance in the Athletics' narrow 2-1 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

He tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just five hits and two walks while striking out four. This outing continues Blackburn's impressive start to the season, holding opponents scoreless in each of his three starts on the mound for the Athletics. The 30-year-old will look to continue to provide manager Mark Kotsay with a reliable starting option in the Oakland rotation and should be monitored by fantasy managers looking to upgrade their starting options early in the season.
