The A's were out of sorts in a blowout loss to the Twins on Wednesday night, making it a game that they should just put in their rear view...
The Twins jumped on Scott Kazmir early, tagging him for six earned runs, as the A's were blown out in Game 3 of a four-game set to Minnesota.
The A’s reinstated outfielder Coco Crisp from the 15-day DL and optioned Craig Gentry to Triple-A Nashville, the club announced Wednesday.
