RP - OAK
Lou Trivino worked a clean ninth inning, needing just three pitchers to retire the side in Oakland's 6-0 win over the Astros on Monday.
It was a 3-0 game going into the bottom of the eighth inning and it was setting up for a save opportunity for Liam Hendriks. But Oakland tacked on three insurance runs and Hendriks' services were no longer needed so Trivino was tasked with closing the door on the Astros. The right-hander has been solid this year with a 2.76 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and a 18:5 K/BB ratio over 16.1 innings. He has virtually no fantasy appeal, though, as he doesn't get save chances nor has he registered a hold this year.
Lou Trivino pitched one inning and had two strikeouts in Monday's 11-1 win against the Mariners.

Trivino has appeared in three out of 10 games for the A's, two of which were nearly perfect and the other was a nightmare, giving him an ERA of 9.00 and four strikeouts on the year.
