Athletics

Over their last 10 games, the A's have been getting solid starting pitching, rock-solid bullpen work and timely hits, including Ben Zobrist's grand slam Tuesday night.
Ben Zobrist's grand slam capped off a five-run seventh inning as the A's beat the Tigers 5-3 in Detroit on Tuesday night.
Despite leading all AL catchers in most offensive categories, Stephen Vogt isn't leading the fan voting for the midsummer classic.
