After the Oakland Athletics went deep into their bullpen Friday night in a 13-inning loss to the Baltimore Orioles, the A's recalled ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte and right-hander Dan Otero from Triple-A Nashville.
For the second straight night, the Orioles gathered at home plate for a water-spraying, hand-slapping celebration -- this time with Venditte giving up the winning run.
His second drive ruined Venditte's 0.00 ERA.
"He's a great hitter, so right there you can't give him anything,'' the rookie said. "I gave him enough for him to do what he had to do.''
Venditte, who made his major league debut on June 5, became the first ambidextrous pitcher to play in the majors since Greg Harris in 1995.
Venditte made four appearances before going on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder.
Mills started for the A's on Friday night, his first appearance in the majors this season.
