BOX SCORE

OAKLAND -- Justin Bour matched his career high with four hits including his fourth home run in five games to highlight Miami's best offensive game of the season, and the Marlins held off a late surge to beat the Oakland Athletics 11-9 on Tuesday night.

Giancarlo Stanton and Dee Gordon had three hits each on a night when every Miami player had at least one by the third inning. Three other Marlins had two hits apiece while Ichiro Suzuki added a two-run single in his return to the starting lineup.

Miami entered the day with the second-worst record in the majors having dropped 14 of 17 before getting a season-high 19 hits against Oakland in the first meeting between the two clubs since 2014.

Yonder Alonso hit his 13th home run of the season for the A's, but left with a bruised right hand after getting hit by a pitch in the sixth. Ryon Healy and Rajai Davis also homered for Oakland.

Jose Urena (2-2) pitched five uneven innings for his first career interleague win in 10 appearances. The Miami right-hander allowed six runs over five innings, raising his ERA from 1.91 to 3.08.

Jesse Hahn (1-4) took the loss and left the game in the third inning with a triceps strain. He pitched just two innings, giving up five runs on seven hits while striking out two. He gave up a single to Christian Yelich in the third then left after a visit to the mound by the Oakland trainer.

The A's scored three times in the ninth and had the tying runner at the plate with two outs before AJ Ramos struck out Stephen Vogt.

Bour doubled as part of a three-run third, singled and scored in the fifth, homered leading off the seventh then singled again in the ninth. It was Bour's 12th home run this season and eighth in his last 12 games.

TRAINER'S ROOM:
Marlins: Wei-Yin Chen received a platelet-rich plasma treatment before the game. The left-hander has been out since early May with arm fatigue. . RHP David Phelps was placed on the bereavement list and is expected to rejoin the team Friday. . Reliever Drew Steckenrider was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans. . RHP Junichi Tazawa (rib cage inflammation) is scheduled to throw a bullpen this weekend.

Athletics: X-rays taken on Alonso's hand were negative. . LHP Sean Doolittle (shoulder strain) will throw a 25-pitch bullpen Wednesday. If all goes well, the former closer could face hitters in his next outing. . RHP Ryan Dull continues to be bothered by soreness in his right knee.

UP NEXT:
Miami right-hander Edinson Volquez (0-6) pitches the finale of this two-game series Wednesday afternoon while Oakland counters with right-hander Sonny Gray (1-1). Gray is attempting to win consecutive starts for the first time since April 2016.

 

A's starter Jesse Hahn exits game vs Marlins with triceps injury

A's starter Jesse Hahn exits game vs Marlins with triceps injury

OAKLAND — A’s starter Jesse Hahn left Tuesday night’s game in the third inning with a strained right triceps.

The right-hander had surrendered seven hits and four runs when he was visited by manager Bob Melvin and A’s head trainer Nick Paparesta after allowing Christian Yelich’s leadoff single in the third. Following a short conversation, Hahn headed for the dugout.

The A’s already were trailing 4-1 at the time, and Bobby Wahl was called in cold from the bullpen. After being given all the time he needed to warm up, Wahl gave up two doubles, a single and two wild pitches as the Marlins added on three more runs to take a 7-1 lead that they held as of the bottom of the fourth.

Hahn came in 1-3 with a 3.02 ERA over nine games (eight starts) after replacing Raul Alcantara in the rotation in early April. Hahn was sidelined for roughly a month late in 2016 with a strained right shoulder and missed the final three months of the 2015 season with right elbow inflammation.

Since Sean Manaea returned from a shoulder setback May 15, the A’s have been operating with what looked like a consistent five-man starting staff with Sonny Gray, Kendall Graveman, Manaea, Andrew Triggs and Hahn.
