Jeff Samardzija coughed up four runs on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 6.2 inninsg against the Astros on Tuesday.

It's been an up and down month for Shark here in July as he has three quality starts in five outings and has allowed three or more runs in three games during that span. His strikeout rate has dropped considerably since joining the A's, but he's certainly made up for it by dropping his walk rate a bunch as well. We'd like to see him bring that K-rate back to where it usually sits, but the move to the AL will probably continue to hinder that. He does have a favorable match-up against the Rays, so there's still hope.
