Once Again, A's Sweep Giants
The cross-bay rivalry between the A's and Giants is turning ever more mismatched.
Oakland finished a three-game sweep at AT&T Park by collecting a 5-3 victory Sunday. That gives the A's six consecutive wins - and two straight series sweeps at AT&T - over the Giants. The A's allowed the Giants four runs in the three games, and Oakland has taken 14 of the past 18 in the regular-season series.
Overall, Oakland leads the series 37-28, and that doesn't include the sweep of the Giants in the 1989 World Series.
