Strong start for Daniel Mengden, Khris Davis’ 43rd homer power A’s win

ARLINGTON, Texas: Close the book on the A’s 2017 season, and while you’re at it, pencil Daniel Mengden in for a spot in Oakland’s rotation next spring. Mengden, back from a spate of injuries and minor-league time, had the best finish of any of Oakland’s starters and he punctuated that by going seven scoreless innings Sunday in the A’s 5-2 win at Texas. Khris Davis hit his 43rd homer in the eighth inning, establishing a career high, and Jed Lowrie upped his Oakland doubles record to 49 with a two-run liner to left in the third inning.

A’s go into final game with some goals in mind

ARLINGTON, Texas - In Oakland’s final game of the season Sunday, there are several A’s players gunning for some personal marks: *Jed Lowrie is two doubles short of 50, a number he’s mentioned he’d like to attain. *Khris Davis would set a personal best with his next homer, and he’d also reach 110 RBIs for the season. *Marcus Semien wants to get his average over .250. Often, managers are more likely to be trying to protect players’ numbers on the last day, sitting guys who are batting .300 or the like. Not so for...

Jed Lowrie sets Oakland doubles record in A’s loss at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas - Jed Lowrie’s season was so strong, the A’s held onto him at the deadline and will pick up his option this winter, two outcomes that appeared far-fetched early in the season. Friday, during the A’s 5-3 loss at Texas, Lowrie set Oakland’s all-time single-season double record, whacking his 48th to move out of a tie with Jason Giambi (2001). Lowrie’s double to center in the fourth was one of just two hits the A’s recorded in the first five innings against Texas starter Martin Perez. In the seventh, Khris Davis walked, Ryon Healy...

A’s second baseman Jed Lowrie wins Catfish Hunter Award

On a team packed with young players - the A’s have used 20 rookies this year - 33-year-old second baseman Jed Lowrie won the Catfish Hunter Award as the most inspirational player. “From Day 1 of spring training, he’s shown great leadership qualities,” shortstop Marcus Semien said. “He helped not only me but a lot of these young guys transition from the minor leagues and teach what you have to do to stay in the big leagues.” The award is presented annually to the player whose performance and conduct best exemplify the spirit of Hunter, the late...
