Big Inning Dooms Twins

Big Inning Dooms Twins

Jed Lowrie’s foul ball that turned into a two-run double after umpires changed the call highlighted a 10-run fourth inning as the Oakland Athletics pounded the Minnesota Twins 18-3 on Wednesday night.

Every Oakland starter had at least one hit, one run and one RBI as the A’s recorded a season-high 22 hits and extended their lead over Texas in the AL West to three games.

Lowrie, Coco Crisp and Stephen Vogt also homered. Yoenis Cespedes had three RBIs to help the A’s score their most runs in a game since beating Boston 20-2 on Aug. 31, 2012.

Sonny Gray, who had received fewer than four runs of support over his last six starts, struck out seven in five innings for the win.
