Five takeaways from Thursday's game
1) While throwing 109 pitches, Masahiro Tanaka only mustered six innings of work while laboring through a few innings, starting right out of the gate in the first. The A's plated three runs in the opening frame, which was helped by two walks from Tanaka, after he did not walk a single batter over his last two starts. Matt Olson grounded into a force out which scored Marcus Semien for the game's first run, then Mark Canha added a two-run single to left field.
