The A’s won their third in a row and sixth in their last seven by completing the mini two-game sweep against St. Louis on Sunday, 4–2.
Tanner Roark went the first five innings, gave up four hits, one run, and picked up the victory in his Oakland debut. Blake Treinen got five outs to help setup Liam Hendriks, who struck out a batter for a 24th consecutive appearance, which is a new A’s franchise record.
Now it’s time to hit the road. Both Tampa Bay and Oakland just about swept last week and enter this one scorching hot and neck-and-neck for that final playoff spot in the American League. The Rays get to host Toronto, though, while the A’s have to deal with the Cubs at Wrigley.
The Cubs entered the weekend trailing St. Louis in the NL Central but a sweep of Milwaukee and Oakland’s success against the Birds helped the Cubs not only regain the top spot in the division, but actually open up a 1.5-game lead, going into Monday.
Yu Darvish didn’t walk a batter in five innings, racked up eight strikeouts, and won.
Nicholas Castellanos played through a minor hamstring problem and went 1-for-4 with an RBI to extend his Cubs hitting streak to four games since coming over from Detroit. He’s 5-for-16 so far with the Cubs.
