A’s: The little things mean a lot

So you’re in the starting lineup for the A’s, first inning, you’re getting loose in the on-deck circle, and — wait a minute, you’re out of the game? That happened to Mark Canha in Tuesday night’s game against Seattle, and the way he reacted said a lot about the A’s. Certain episodes make it clear that it’s all about the team. Only two batters had come to the plate when Jed Lowrie stepped in against Seattle left-hander James Paxton in the first inning and lined a shot that struck Paxton on his pitching arm. Paxton, later placed on the disabled...

Chapman, Lowrie combine to help A’s edge red-hot Mariners, gain on Astros

So many things are going right for Oakland the past two months, it’s tough to know where to start some nights, but Monday at the Coliseum, was an easy call. The biggest news: The A’s hung on to beat their nearest postseason rival - and gained half a game on the top spot in the division, too. A 7-6 victory over the Mariners, fueled by Matt Chapman and Jed Lowrie, put Oakland 2 ½ games ahead of Seattle for the second wild-card spot, and moved the A’s just two games behind the Astros for the division lead. The Mariners entered the game on a roll after...

A’s Jed Lowrie regaining strength, records 1,000th career hit

ANAHEIM - Jed Lowrie is finally able to do his regular leg workout program after fully recovering from a collision with Stephen Piscotty before the All-Star break, and he demonstrated that leg strength Sunday by walloping a two-run homer in the fourth. Lowrie also doubled in the first inning -fittingly, for a man who set Oakland’s single-season doubles record, his 1,000th career hit. He signaled for the ball as he pulled into second base and it was thrown back into the dugout for him. On Friday, Lowrie said he’s just resumed his thorough strength routine...

ARLINGTON, Texas - Oakland recalled right-hander Frankie Montas, Tuesday’s starter, and sent second baseman Franklin Barreto back to Triple-A Nashville.

All-Star Jed Lowrie on possibly returning to A’s: ‘I enjoy playing with these guys’

WASHINGTON — All-Star second baseman Jed Lowrie knows the drill. He went through this before. At the end of the 2014 season, everyone seemed convinced — including Lowrie himself — he wouldn’t return to the A’s as a free agent. Four years later, he’s heading toward free agency again, but it’s different this time. There’s a chance he’ll stick around, and he’s encouraged by the possibility. “I can say definitively they didn’t express any interest the last time around,” Lowrie said, “and they’ve expressed interest...
