Kazmir has really struggled in the second half so its good to see him end his regular season on a strong note. Overall Kazmir finishes the 2014 regular season going 15-9 with a 3.55 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 164 strike outs over 190.1 innings.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Kazmir struck out nine batters in five innings which is great, but the 11 hits and six earned runs isn't. Kazmir was dominant early in the year but hasn't been lately. His ERA is up to 3.63 and his regression has hurt the Athletics as they are experiencing a major collapse.Analyst: Colby Conway
Kazmir and catcher Derek Norris weren't on the same page Tuesday night, as both looked physically frustrated throughout the game. Norris has been struggling to make throws to second base lately and opposing teams are cued in on the fact. Kazmir will look to bounce back against a pathetic Phillies team this weekend.Analyst: Spencer Silva
