Jeff Samardzija went the distance pitching eight innings Friday giving up three runs on five hits, including a home run, with no walks and five strikeouts in the 3-2 road loss to Seattle.
Samardzija was less shark and more shark bait in his second outing since joining the A's. The loss dropped his A's record to 1-1 and his season record to 3-8 in 19 combined starts with 2.78 ERA.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Eagles signed WR Miles Austin.
After a disappointing season with the Browns which was also marred with a kidney injury, Austin heads back to the NFC East to join the Eagles who are obviously hoping he can return with some of that old 2009 magic. There's not much of a receiving corps there, so if he plays well in camp, he could see a decent-sized role. Analysis: Howard Bender
