The pitcher outdueled by Oakland A's Barry Zito and was dominated by Oakland A's Frank Thomas in Game 1 of 2006 ALDS.
Wow! Barry Zito really just out-pitched Johan Santana and Frank Thomas hit a monster homer off of Santana to hand Johan Santana his first home loss since August 1st, 2005 (which was also against the Oakland A's). Also to top it off it was in the postseason. Now the Twins have no shot of beating the A's.
