Billy Butler's two-RBI single in the sixth was the difference for the A's, as they got a second straight win and took the series against the Tigers.
A's starter Rich Hill left Sunday's game earlier than he would've liked to, as the pitcher exited in the top of the seventh with an unknown injury.
With Zach Neal pitching in relief Saturday, the A's will bring lefty Eric Surkamp back up to start on the bump Tuesday vs. the Twins.
