Gaudin goes for three in a row against Twins

Jul 12, 2007 - 1:19 PM Oakland (44-44) at Minnesota (45-43) 8:10 pm EDT

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) - Chad Gaudin hopes to record his third win in as many starts when the Oakland Athletics face the Minnesota Twins in the opener of a four-game series Thursday.

The 24-year-old Gaudin (8-3, 2.88 ERA) yielded two runs and eight hits with four walks and three strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a 3-2 triumph against the Seattle Mariners last Thursday.

The Athletics have failed to pick up a win since Gaudin's last performance, losing three straight entering the All-Star break.

Oakland has been outscored, 18-4, on its current losing stretch.

The Twins counter with Scott Baker (3-3, 5.71), who is coming off one of his worst outings of the season but still registered a win.

The 25-year-old righthander was tagged for seven runs and nine hits with six strikeouts over five innings in a 20-14 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday.

After scoring 32 runs on Friday in a doubleheader, Minnesota was held to just four runs over two straight losses entering the break.
