(SportsNetwork.com) - Oakland will rely on Jeff Samardzija on Saturday when it continues a four-game series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Angel Stadium.

The Athletics originally had Scott Kazmir lined up for this start, but Oakland manager Bob Melvin opted to flip-flop him with Samardzija. Kazmir will instead start Sunday's finale.

'The idea is to give Kaz a little more time off,' Melvin said. 'It's been a while since he's pitched this much, and Shark (Samardzija) feels real good right now.'

Not to mention, the A's are 0-3 in August when Jon Lester and Kazmir have faced the same team in back-to-back starts.

So it will be Samardzija, who is coming off one of his better efforts since being acquired from the Chicago Cubs. Samardzija snapped a two-start losing streak on Monday in Houston, as he allowed two runs in eight innings and struck out 10 to improve to 4-3 with a 3.86 ERA since the trade.
