Marcus Semien scored from second base on the misplay by Crawford, giving the newest Athletic reliever, Jeurys Familia, his first win with Oakland. Familia pitched two scoreless innings and struck out one in his Athletics debut. And this comes after he arrived just one hour before the game, as the trade to bring him to Oakland took place on Saturday. Familia recorded 17 saves in 40 appearances with the New York Mets this season. He is now 5-4 overall on the year.
Khris Davis and Matt Olson both homered twice, as the Athletics took the weekend series, as well as the season series from the Giants in front of their third straight sellout crowd at Oakland Coliseum. They knew how big of a deal this series would be, as they opened up the outfield bleachers for the first time in 13 years.
Andrew McCutchen went deep for the Giants, while Austin Slater recorded three hits in the loss. Pablo Sandoval had a key pinch-hit, two-run single to help force extras, while Nick Hundley scored twice. The Giants scored three times in the seventh inning to tie things up, but dropped to just a game over .500 on the season, and 11 games below .500 on the road. They are now five games back in the NL West and Wild Card, while the A's kept pace with the Seattle Mariners to remain three games back in the AL Wild Card.
