Jurickson Profar started all of the action in the top of the second with a home run to right field. Matt Olson followed suit with a very long shot to right field to put the A’s up 2-0. In the fourth inning, Robbie Grossman gets his 7th double of the season on a sharp fly ball to center fielder Leonys Martin. Josh Phegley brought him home with an RBI single to left fielder Oscar Mercado and the A’s slowly peck away at Carlos Carrasco. Meanwhile, Brett Anderson was lights out giving up just one run in the 5 and 13 innings. Petit handled the other two outs easily. After six innings, the Athletics lead 3-1.
