Graveman ends long skid in A’s 3-2 win over Twins
Coco Crisp homered leading off the game, Khris Davis hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the sixth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Monday.
Jed Lowrie added two hits and scored the game-winning run for Oakland while first baseman Yonder Alonso singled, scored and made a diving catch to end a threat in the seventh and strand the potential tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position.
Kendall Graveman pitched six uneven innings to win for the first time in more than a month for the A’s. Oakland has won three straight since dropping the opener of this six-game homestand.
