Good News, Bad News As A's Win Again

Jack Cust hit a go-ahead solo home run, Jack Hannahan tied the game with a three-run double and the Oakland Athletics extended their best winning streak in three years to seven games with a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

Rookie Josh Outman recovered from an early deficit to continue an impressive run by the A's young staff.

Outman, one of four rookies in Oakland's rotation, fell behind in the top of the fourth when Carlos Gomez drew a two-out, bases-loaded walk, then Matt Tolbert singled in two runs.

The A's tied it in the bottom half and went ahead on Cust's homer off Luis Ayala in the fifth.

Oakland's Aaron Cunningham suffered a concussion after a pitch hit him in the head.
