Oakland Athletics catcher-first baseman Stephen Vogt exited with a right leg cramp after chasing a foul ball that went into the seats during the ninth inning of the A's contest against the Detroit Tigers. Max Muncy entered the game as his replacement at first base.

Manager Bob Melvin informed beat reporters after the game that it was just a cramp down Vogt's entire right leg that forced him out of Thursday's contest, according to MLB.com's Jane Lee.

You can put this injury into the "could have been a lot worse" category. The A's won their fourth consecutive contest and earned their first sweep at Comerica Park since the middle of The Streak in 2002.
