Trevor Cahill Leads A's to Sixth Straight Win and Season Sweep of Tigers

OAKLAND - Trevor Cahill tossed six shutout innings, as the A's blanked the Tigers 6-0 for their sixth straight win, and eighth consecutive at home.

Cahill allowed just three hits and one walk, striking out 10. He improved to 4-2 on the season and lowered his ERA to 4.12.

His performance continued an incredible run by the A's starting rotation. During the team's six-game winning streak, Oakland starters have allowed just three earned runs in 37 innings, an ERA of 0.73. This series, Detroit scored just one run in 31 innings.

Here's what else you need to know from Sunday's series finale...

--- Khris Davis blasted his 31st home run of the season in the fourth inning, a line shot to center field. He passed Mike Trout for the third-most home runs in MLB this season. The home run was Davis' 10th since the All-Star break, tied for the most in baseball. In his last 14 games, Davis has belted 10 homers and driven in 22 runs.

--- Matt Chapman also went yard, ripping a two-run shot to left in the seventh inning for his 15th long ball of the season. Chapman has now reached base safely in a career-high 21 straight games.

--- Matt Olson went opposite field for his 22nd home run of the season, a two-run blast in the eighth inning. It was Olson's first homer since July 22 against the Giants.

--- Rookie Ramon Laureano went 3-for-3 with an RBI and his first career stolen base. In three career games, Laureano is batting .364 (4-for-11) with two RBI.

--- After completing the season sweep of Toronto Wednesday, the A's did the same to Detroit this weekend. Oakland went 7-0 against both teams.
