• A's utility man Stephen Vogt is hitting .457 (16-for-35) during his career-high, 10-game hitting streak. In 2014, he's played catcher, right field, left field and first base and hit .400 against right-handed pitching.
"We believe in Stephen Vogt? I think that's what the fans are saying out there in right field. I believe in Stephen Vogt? Well we believe in Stephen Vogt," manager Bob Melvin said. "He's been terrific for us. He's a battler. He fits in very well with the makeup of the team… he's been really instrumental in the success the team's been having here recently."
