On Tuesday, Roy Oswalt pretty much shut down the A’s in Oakland, giving up three hits and one run while striking out six over 6 1/3 innings. But after that game, the man responsible for Oakland’s lone run of the day, Josh Reddick, told reporters that he wasn’t exactly impressed by the veteran starter.
Reddick, who hit a solo home run to lead off the bottom of the seventh, said, “I don’t feel like he was very good. … I don’t feel like his stuff was very far out there.”
On Wednesday, Reddick apologized for, and attempted to clarify his statement via Twitter.
“I wasn’t bad mouthing Roy Oswalt,” he tweeted, via the Dallas Morning News. “So please don’t take it the wrong way. All I meant was we missed a lot of good pitches in good situations is all. Obviously Roy is a great pitcher and has been for years. My apologies.”
