Oakland A’s starting pitcher Trevor Cahill pitched six innings, striking out 10 batters while giving up just three hits.
Cahill (4-2) has had an impressive season especially Sunday against the Tigers as he struck out Jim Adduci with bases loaded to end the first inning.
While the Athletics are fitting for a new stadium in Oakland, Cahill looks right at home.
Per ESPN, Cahill had won three consecutive starts with a .99 ERA during his seven starts at the Coliseum this season.
Not only has the pitching been a solid piece of the puzzle recently for the Athletics but they also had help from the bats of Khris Davis who has hit a homerun in two consecutive games alongside teammate Matt Chapman.
Khris Davis hit his 31st homerun of the season off Tigers pitcher Francisco Lindor (3-6). That homerun marked his 10th in just 16 games since the break.
Due to the heavy hitting offense the A’s not only won the series against the Tigers but the team is currently on a six game win streak.
But that wasn’t the end of it as Matt Chapman hit his 15th homerun in the 7th inning increasing the lead 4-0 and then Matt Olson increased the lead with a two-run shot in the 8th.
During this three game series against the Tigers, but for the first time in franchise history the Athletics did not give up an earned run in a series of three or more games as the Athletics shutout the Tigers on Friday night and then gave up just one unearned run on Saturday.
After the series against the Tigers, the Athletics agree to receiver pitcher Mike Fiers for either two players or cash.
Although the Tigers are in a rebuild for the next couple years, Mike Gerber shined some light as he had two hits during Sundays game.
