Athletics Acquire Adam Dunn From White Sox

Athletics Acquire Adam Dunn From White Sox

Brian Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Oakland Athletics acquired power-hitter Adam Dunn from the Chicago White Sox for minor league pitcher Nolan Sanburn and cash considerations Sunday.

According to ESPN MLB Insider Buster Olney, the A’s will pay Dunn approximately half of the remaining $2.5 million that is owed to him this season.

The 34-year-old Dunn can help an Athletics’ team that has ranked 20th in runs scored since trading away slugger Yoenis Cespedes on July 31.

Dunn is playing in his 15th major league season. During that time he’s compiled a .237 batting average, 460 home runs, 1,158 RBIs and a .365 on-base percentage.

Angels Power Past Oakland, Regain MLB’s Best Record

Angels Power Past Oakland, Regain MLB’s Best Record

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — The two days off for Josh Hamilton have proven to be a perfect remedy for the former slumping slugger. Hamilton drove in three runs, including his 10th home run of the year, on Sunday night as the Los Angeles Angels defeated Oakland 9-4 to regain the best record in baseball.

The Angels (77-52) also took back the top spot in the American League West division with the victory. Los Angeles also got a sixth inning homer from Mike Trout, which opened up a 9-0 lead on the Athletics (76-53). That proved to be more than enough offense for starting pitcher Jered Weaver (14-7) as the righty struck out eight in six and two-thirds innings.

“It’s nice to end the series on top of the AL West division,” Weaver said. “This was obviously a huge game. We didn’t want to get swept, and the offense was the story of the game.”

Los Angeles opened the scoring in the second, plating three runs off Scott Kazmir (14-6) before Hamilton’s two-run blast in the third made it a 5-0 lead. Hamilton brought home another run in the fourth on a sacrifice fly, effectively ending Kazmir’s night. 

Oakland did attempt a comeback late, getting home runs from Alberto Callaspo and Andy Parrino in the seventh to make it a 9-3 deficit. The Athletics added another in the ninth, but Jason Grilli struck out the final two batters of the night.

Royals Acquire OF Josh Willingham from Twins

Royals Acquire OF Josh Willingham from Twins

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) –  In attempt to bolster their lineup, the Kansas City Royals have acquired outfielder Josh Williingham from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor league pitcher Jason Adam.

Willingham was hitting just .210 this season for the Twins, but the Royals were looking to add power to their lineup and were intrigued by the 35-year-old.  Just two years ago he hit 35 home runs and drove in 110 runs for Minnesota.

“Obviously the goal was to win with the Twins,” Willingham said upon hearing about the trade. “Unfortunately, we weren’t. Now I have a chance to go help another club and hopefully make the playoffs.”

Willingham is expected to play Tuesday night when the Royals take on the Oakland Athletics at home.

The Royals hope Willingham will help the team make the playoffs for the first time since 1985, when they beat the St. Louis Cardinals to win the World Series.

Royals Take AL Central Lead with Win

Royals Take AL Central Lead with Win

Rich Pilling/MLB Photos via Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — Just over a week ago, Kansas City was five games behind the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central. Now, the Royals (64-53) won their eighth straight on Monday and overtook the Tigers in the division race with a 3-2 win over Oakland.

Kansas City jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after two innings, but Brandon Moss singled home a pair of runs for the Athletics (72-46) in the third to tie the game.

It remained deadlocked until Alcides Escobar singled in a run in the seventh, giving the Royals a 3-2 advantage.

Yordany Ventura out dueled Sonny Gray by allowing two runs on two hits over six innings. Gray went seven strong, giving up three runs on six hits while striking out a pair.

Kansas City was able to gain the top spot in the AL Central when Pittsburgh defeated Detroit 11-3. It marks the latest point in the season since 2003 that the Royals have been in first place.

“You want to be in first place. Our goal was to get back to first place,” said Royals manager Ned Yost, who has won eight games in a row. “Now our goal is to stay in first place.”

Athletics Acquire SP Jon Lester from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes

Athletics Acquire SP Jon Lester from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) –  The Oakland Athletics have acquired starting pitcher Jon Lester, outfielder Jonny Gomes, and cash considerations from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and a 2015 competitive balance pick.

The Red Sox were dangling Lester for several days leading up to Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET non-waiver trade deadline. 

Several teams were believed to be interested in the two-time World Series champion, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Baltimore Orioles. In the end, it was the Athletics who swooped in and gave the Red Sox an offer they couldn’t refuse.

The 30-year-old Lester will be a free agent after the season. 

He will join a strong rotation in Oakland that already includes All-Stars Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir, along with youngster Sonny Gray.

Cespedes, 28, is a two-time reigning Home Run Derby champion who has 17 homers and 56 RBIs this season.  He will provide the Red Sox with a big bat in the middle of their lineup.

Gomes is hitting .234 with 6 home runs and 32 RBIs in 2014.

Athletics Rally Past Astros in the 9th Inning

Athletics Rally Past Astros in the 9th Inning

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(HOUSTON) — The Oakland Athletics have proved once again why they very well may be the best team in all of Major League Baseball. On Tuesday night, Oakland scored six runs in the ninth inning to rally back and defeat the Houston Astros, 7-4.

Trailing 4-1 in the ninth inning, the Athletics were able to get the best of closer Chad Qualls.

Alberto Callaspo started the rally as he single home both Derek Norris and Josh Reddick. Yoenis Cespedes proceeded to tie the game with an RBI single.

With the game tied at 4, Brandon Moss was the hero as he singled home Jed Lowrie, giving Oakland a 5-4 lead.

“It had not been a very good day until that last at-bat,” Moss said. “I was just trying to battle, stay on the ball a little bit. Get on base any way I could. If I got a good pitch to hit, hit it hard.”

Josh Donaldson gave the team some insurance runs as he later doubled home Yoenis Cespedes and Moss.

The Athletics are now 66-40, and have the best record in all of Major League Baseball.
