Mengden on a roll

Daniel Mengden pitched seven shutout innings and didn't allow a walk in the Athletics' win over the Tigers on Wednesday. Mengden has pitched at least seven innings without allowing a run or a walk in each of his last two starts. The only other pitchers in A's history to do that were Chief Bender (1911), Catfish Hunter (1974), Bartolo Colon (2013) and Sean Manaea (2016). Two other pitchers have not allowed a run or walk in at least seven innings in consecutive starts this season: Corey Kluber and Robbie Ray. (Elias Sports Bureau)

Gallo's bomb leads the way Sunday

Power Rankings: Athletics see biggest jump

It's too little, too late for the A's, but last week's sweep of the Astros seems to have caught the eye of our panel. Daniel Mengden is among the bright spots of late.

Red Sox 6, Athletics 2: Andrew Benintendi collected three hits to lead the Red Sox to a victory in the matinee rubber game of a three-game series at Fenway Park. A flurry of doubles -- Dustin Pedroia, Benintendi and Mitch Moreland -- led to two runs and gave the Red Sox a lead in the sixth inning. Boston tacked on three runs in the seventh. Drew Pomeranz allowed one run in six innings and improved to 16-5.
