At least he kept his walks down

Future A's and Giants played a little Triple-A game Saturday, and for Sacramento River Cats pitcher Lenny DiNardo (he's an Athletic, phew!), he would've probably been better off watching college football all day.

Rather than watch his Stetson Hatters take on...well, Stetson doesn't have a football team and its mascot is a fucking hat...he went out on the hill at beautiful Raley Field and had one of the worst days in the history of pitching.

He went three-plus innings, gave up 14 hits, 15 runs (all earned) and gave up two jacks. He struck out one. You can see the hilarious box score here.

Not entirely sure why he would be left in a game long enough to give up 15 earned (though, we think that the bullpen allowed a few inherited runners to score), but man, 15 earned will fuck up your ERA.

But we always look for a silver lining: only two walks. Way to make them hit their way on, Len.

wasn't he pitching, and doing fairly well, in the Majors earlier this year?

He's better than Zito.
