Cal Quantrill took a hard-luck loss with three runs — but only one earned — in six innings.
Quantrill made an error himself and Owen Miller made his second blunder of the season at first base.
Steven Kwan missed all four games in Anaheim with hamstring tightness but he has not been placed on the Injured List yet.
Aaron Civale is 0–2 in three starts. He gave up six runs on seven hits over three innings the last time out at Yankee Stadium.
He is striking out over a batter per inning but giving up even more hits. He has yet to extend beyond four innings in a start so far this season.
Oakland got Thursday off after earning a split in its two-game series in San Francisco on Wednesday, 1–0.
Paul Blackburn pitched five shutout innings for the win. Five relievers finished the last four innings without giving up a hit.
Chad Pinder’s leadoff home run proved to be the only run of the game for either side.
Despite an on-base percentage of .262, Pinder has an OPS+ of 137 to lead the team, thanks to his three homers.
Jakob Junis threw five innings of shutout relief for the Giants, who employed Sam Long as an opener.
Frankie Montas has split four starts, 2–2. He lost his last time out against Texas but pitched into the eighth inning and gave up just three hits and two runs.
He has thrown a total of 24.2 innings in four starts without throwing 100 pitches in any of them.

Cleveland Guardians vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Cleveland has not won since its road trip started over a week ago. It’s desperate for a win but also in a deep offensive funk.
That offense is not likely to break out of its slump against the likes of Montas. I would not recommend a play on the Cleveland moneyline, despite the stated predicted score below.
Look for Civale to have his best start of the season to help keep this total under the lowest number on the board Friday.
