It was a short stay at home for the A's this week, but they made the most of it, limiting the Indians to three runs while winning two of three games.
Kendall Graveman continued his dominance and the A's scored five runs in the second inning en route to a 5-1 win over the Indians Wednesday.
John Fisher's reaction to the Howard terminal site and Libby Schaaf’s powers of persuasion will determine much about how much hardball the A’s still want to play...

    For the first time since July 23 the A's find themselves on the outside of the playoff picture, as Jered Weaver dominated the green and gold in a 4-0 Angels win. A's hitters managed just four hits all night.

    The A's open up a three-game set with the Angels, in what is arguably their biggest series of the season. They lead the Halos by .5 games in the Wild Card race. Watch on CSN California and follow along online!

    Brett Anderson says his next start will likely come in Oklahoma City. If everything goes according to plan he will be throwing 90 pitches. The A's want to see him get to 100 pitches before considering making a move with him.

    All-Star Ryan Cook has blown each of his last two save attempts and four of his last six. However, the team understands that they have to be patient with Cook, who has shown flashes of brilliance this season.

    Bob Melvin said that Yoenis Cespedes' hand bothered the slugger on Sunday, which led the A's manager to keep him on the bench for a series opener against the Angels.
  • 4y
    The A's are 46-29 with Yoenis Cespedes in the starting lineup, and just 12-21 without. The rookie sensation is not in the lineup on Tuesday as he continues to deal with a wrist problem. Can the A's win without him?
  • 4y
    Yoenis Cespedes is once again out with an injury, and Eric Sogard will get a chance to prove himself at shortstop.
