Kazmir deals in A’s debut
March 08, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

PHOENIX — Scott Kazmir pitched three sharp innings in his Oakland debut, sending the Athletics to a 2-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday.

Kazmir, a left-hander who signed a two-year, $22 million deal with the A’s over the winter, gave up two hits and struck out two.

Left-hander Wade Miley had a strong effort for Arizona, pitching five innings and giving up an unearned run on three hits. He walked one and struck out four.

The unearned run came in the fifth inning when Josh Reddick scored on a grounder by Stephen Vogt that was booted for an error by Arizona shortstop Didi Gregorius.

Daric Barton drove in Oakland’s second run with a single in the eighth.

Athletics: After pitching in a game with Oakland for the first time, Kazmir said: “Now it feels like I’m actually contributing. I tried to keep my emotions in check and not do too much.”

“In that third inning I started getting tired, but all in all I am pleased,” he said.

Oakland outfielder Billy Burns, who leads the majors with seven stolen bases this spring, fell short in his bid for No. 8 when he was thrown out at second by Diamondbacks catcher Henry Blanco in the third inning.
