From time to time we check in on Blake Treinen, the South Dakota State University alum currently pitching for the Oakland A's. In fact, Treinen is the closer.
He had a good weekend. Monday night he pitched a scoreless, hitless 9th inning in a game the A's lost 1-0 in the 13th. On Sunday, he got his 12th save of the season closing out a 2-1 win over the DBacks. Saturday was Treinen's day off due to one of mlb's more unusual events these days -- Dan Mengden pitched a complete game.
Nice to see a guy that was pitching for the Jacks not long ago having success in the bigs.
