OAKLAND -- A.J. Griffin's command was fashionably late on Wednesday afternoon. Blame it on the matinee start time.

Oakland's right-hander had already thrown 14 pitches, nine for balls that resulted in a pair of walks, by the time he found it. When he did, he embraced it, "and after that he was just absolutely spectacular," his manager said.

Shutout spectacular.

It was the first for Griffin, who allowed the Reds just two hits while fanning seven in a 5-0 victory, and also for catcher Stephen Vogt, making just his third career start behind the plate.

"It's really easy to call a game for a guy that's executing every pitch," Vogt said. "He was absolutely outstanding. No one really squared the ball up. There was maybe one ball hit hard today. That's pretty special, especially against a lineup like the Reds."
