A's second baseman Jed Lowrie makes his All-Star debut at age 34, making him one of the feel-good All-Stars of 2018. "I feel like I've had a good career and I've gone through a lot of adversity and ups and downs," he said Monday, "so to get here at this stage is pretty special."

Manfred confident in new A's, Rays ballparks

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is confident the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays are moving closer to getting plans in place for new ballparks.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Huge cheers in DC for former Nationals Wilson Ramos and Blake Treinen. Treinen went from failed closer to being traded last summer in the deadline deal that brought Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson from Oakland. This season with the surprising A's, Treinen has been lights out, notching 24 saves and posting a 0.94 ERA that leads all qualified relievers.

Oh, and just like that the A's have cut the Mariners' lead for the second wild card to 3 games as the Mariners lose four in a row before the break. The A's were 11 games back of Seattle on June 15, but went 21-6 since then to climb back into the playoff race.

Astros beat A's 6-5 on bizarre play in 11th inning

Alex Bregman homered twice and his tapper just in front of the plate in the 11th inning led to a bizarre play that ended the game, as catcher Jonathan Lucroy's throwing error handed the Houston Astros a 6-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Crazy finish in Houston. After Stephen Piscotty had homered to give the A's the lead in the top of the 11th, the Astros tied it and then won it on Alex Bregman's dribbler in front of the plate when Jonathan Lucroy throw to first base glanced off Bregman's helmet, allowing the winning run to score (upheld after a long review).

Be afraid, Seattle Mariners, be afraid. The Oakland A's are sizzling, winners of 17 of 21 now after blanking the Astros 2-0 behind Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino and Blake Treinen. Montas matched zeros with Gerrit Cole and averaged 96.6 mph with his fastball as he looks like a potential rotation weapon in the second half. The Houston bullpen then allowed two late runs..
