It found too much of the plate, though, and Rasmus launched his second homer of the game to finish the scoring in the A's 5-1 loss to the Astros. "So I broke that rule. Didn't get away with it today," Zito said. "Had all three pitches working for the most part, felt comfortable with all three, and it was good to go out there. I don't want to give up runs, obviously, but it's good to know it feels good out there. I'm ready to get ready for my next one, whenever that is." Zito, who last appeared in an A's [...]
