Davis lifts A's over Twins in 9th

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Khris Davis had been a fixture in the cleanup spot for most of the past four seasons, putting together three straight 40-homer, 100-RBI seasons. He hadn't been living up to his usual standards in 2019 and he was slotted into the sixth spot in the batting order the past four games.

Oakland's designated hitter was in the right spot at the right time on Saturday.


Sánchez, Adams pace Nats past Braves

ATLANTA (AP) Nationals closer Sean Doolittle knew his team couldn't afford to falter in the late innings for the second straight night.

"I hesitate to use the phrase that today was a must-win game because it's still the third week of July," Doolittle said. "But after a tough one (Friday) night and knowing what the standings already are, I think tonight was really, really important for us."
