Edwin Jackson, Khris Davis lead way as A’s move 20 games over .500

With all the worries about Oakland’s rotation at the trade deadline, the group is rolling along pretty well right now, just like the A’s themselves. Edwin Jackson allowed only an unearned run in 61/3 innings and Khris Davis hit his 30th homer to help the A’s beat Detroit 2-1 at the Coliseum on Saturday. Oakland improved to 66-46, the team’s second-best record after 112 games in the past 26 years; the A’s were 69-43 at the same point in 2014. “It’s just playing with the confidence we have from the last 40 games or so and riding...

A’s swept in Colorado after bats go quiet

DENVER - The A’s return home for most of the next five weeks after a road trip that started with them looking unbeatable and finished with the club struggling to score runs. Oakland did finally record its first homers in three games at Coors Field, with solo shots from Matt Chapman and Khris Davis, but the Rockies won 3-2 to sweep the series. The A’s dropped back to 1 1/2 games behind Seattle in the race for the second wild-card spot. (The Mariners, too, struggled against Colorado, going 1-5.) The A’s have no reason to hang their headd.

Another amazing comeback for A’s, Khris Davis’ homers top Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas -As per usual, the A’s waited to start rallying until the seventh inning, and Khris Davis walloped a homer against Texas on Wednesday. And then another - this time with two outs in the ninth, a runner on and Oakland down by a run. Preposterous, really. Just silly, especially coming on the heels of the A’s win Tuesday after trailing by eight in the sixth inning. Davis’ two-run shot off José Leclerc was his 27th homer of the season and it provided Oakland a 6-5 victory, the team’s fifth win in a row.
