Piscotty’s 3 RBIs lead A’s over Rangers, end 3-game skid
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Athletics found their winning formula again: Grab an early lead, the starters keep them in the game, and then allow the deep bullpen to handle the rest.

Chapman, Lowrie power A’s past Twins, 6-2
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Matt Chapman continued his torrid second-half hitting with a pair of solo homers to help Oakland to another series victory, sending the Athletics to Houston for three crucial games with the first-place Astros.
Jed Lowrie drove in three runs with a homer and double, and the Athletics' bullpen preserved an effective outing by call-up Chris Bassitt for a 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
DETROIT (AP) — The Oakland Athletics leaned on pitching, defense and Jed Lorie's clutch hitting to overcome their lack of a long ball.
Lowrie hit an RBI double in the fourth inning and Chris Bassitt pitched six innings to help Oakland beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0 on Wednesday night.
The A's did not clear the fences, ending their major league-record streak at 27 road games.
"We put home run swings on them," manager Bob Melvin said. "We just didn't get rewarded for them."

CHICAGO (AP) — Thursday night's game between the Oakland Athletics and the Chicago White Sox has been postponed because of rain.

The game will be made up on Friday as part of a straight doubleheader beginning at 3:10 p.m. CDT. The second game will start at 7:10 p.m., the time for Friday's regularly scheduled game, or 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Danny Duffy can blow away hitters with a mid-90s fastball.
He's learning that his softer stuff can be just as effective.
Duffy pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, and the Kansas City Royals snapped a six-game skid with a 2-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday.
Duffy (3-6) struck out a season-high 10 and walked three.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have put reliever Santiago Casilla on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder.
The A's made the move Saturday. They also optioned right-handed pitcher Josh Lucas to Triple-A Nashville and recalled righties Chris Bassitt and Carlos Ramirez from their top affiliate.
Casilla experienced a similar injury in spring training, A's manager Bob Melvin said. The injury isn't thought to be serious.
