Ziegler pitched three shutout innings in Oakland’s 4-3 loss to Kansas City. All three innings ended with double plays.

Lynch leaving?
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Lynch’s days with the Denver Broncos appear to be over.
The 16-year NFL safety met with coach Mike Shanahan on Wednesday and told Denver’s KCNC-TV that Shanahan gave him permission to explore other opportunities.
That could be playing for another team, or retiring to perhaps go into the broadcast booth.
Lynch skipped a team meeting Tuesday night and was excused from Wednesday’s workouts for what Shanahan termed personal reasons.

Former NBA great may run for mayor of Detriot
DETROIT (AP) — Businessman and former NBA great Dave Bing says he’s seriously considering running for mayor of Detroit because of scandals surrounding the incumbent and other problems in the city where he played for most of his Hall-of-Fame career.
Bing said Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s legal and image troubles, a federal probe into a sludge recycling contract and Detroit’s underachieving public schools, are hampering the financially strapped city’s ability to attract business, investment and people.
Reports of a physical confrontation last week involving Kilpatrick and a sheriff’s deputy who was trying to serve a subpoena on a mayoral ally only adds to Detroit’s growing embarrassment, Bing said. State police are investigating the incident.
