A’s shut out Orioles again, win third straight

For the third-straight game, the Oakland Athletics won a one-run game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The A’s have done it by shutting down the second-best offense (according to team OPS) in the American League. On Wednesday, the Orioles didn’t reach third base after the first inning and lost 1-0.

Athletics starter Ross Detwiler pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing six hits and no walks. John Axford pitched the ninth to secure his second save of the season.

Marcus Semien and Yonder Alonso had back-to-back two-out doubles in the bottom of the third to account for the only run of the game.

Oakland and Baltimore play their series finale on Thursday at 12:05, when Andrew Triggs will face off against Chris Tillman.
