Worth noting

• Jed Lowrie set or tied a series of Oakland records on Monday night. His nine at-bats tied for most in a game, with Mike Heath the last to do so on July 1, 1979. He has 34 hits in April, an Oakland record, and 11 doubles, tied with Mark Ellis for the most in the month.

• Chris Young's pinch-hit triple on Monday was just the second successful pinch-hit of the season for the A's and stopped an 0-for-21 streak. The A's are 2-for-25 in such situations, an average of .080.

• The A's had 71 at-bats on Monday, the second most in Oakland history to 76 on June 4, 1971.
