Whitt Merrifield led off with a single to left. Adalberto Mondesi followed with his third triple of the season to score the first run of the game. The A’s retaliated in the first. In an opposite-field slice down the left field line, Matt Olson’s two-RBI double put the Athletics ahead 2-1.

The A’s went up 4-1 in the second inning which started with Sean Murphy doubling on a line drive to left field. Marcus Semien, who singled in the first inning, took a two run shot to center field for a two RBI home run.

KC’s Solar took it deep in the top of the fourth to bring the score to 4-2.

The game heads into the bottom of the fourth with Tanner Roark about to be pulled.
