Blackburn has been absolutely phenomenal to begin the season as he continues to carry the Athletics team with his fourth win on the season and a now perfect record of 4-0. The A's starting pitcher has an ERA of 1.74 and seems to be unsolvable from the plate which has led to him finally closing a rather sad streak for the A's of nine straight losses.

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 4 1/3 innings on Tuesday, striking out five, walking one, and allowing six hits for three earned runs in the A's 10-7 loss to the Rays.
Blackburn's work ended up being all for not as the A's blew the game in the 10th inning allowing five runs to score. Regardless of the score, due to the A's pitcher not making five innings he would not have been eligible to receive the win anyway. Blackburn is one of only two A's pitchers that warrant roster consideration at the moment.
