Oakland A's 6, San Francisco Giants 4: Abad, Otero, Whelan steamroll Giants

The Athletics earned a 6-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Scottsdale Stadium this evening on the back of a perfect bullpen performance and power from hitters expected and not. After taking over from a struggling Jesse Chavez, Oakland Athletics relievers Fernando Abad, Dan Otero, and Kevin Whelan combined to retire San Francisco's final 16 batters. Josh Phegley and Billy Butler each contributed run-scoring doubles, but Eric Sogard led tonight's A's in runs batted in with three on a sacrifice fly and a two-run triple. A complete recap shortly.
