Oakland A's fans had plenty to be excited about after hearing that recently acquired pitcher Jeff Samardzija was going to start Sunday afternoon's game vs. Toronto. 

A few fans wanted to wish their new star pitcher good luck by making a homemade sign, but spelling his last name proved to be too much trouble: 

It must have worked, because Samardzija looked right at home in his first start for Oakland. Fans were treated to a gem, as Samardzija pitched seven innings, surrendering one run while striking out five. The former Chicago Cubs ace picked up the win, and Oakland's 4-2 victory completed a four-game sweep of the Blue Jays.
