    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.”
