Sean Manaea equaled his career high with 10 strikeouts over seven innings to pitch the Oakland A's to a 3-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Khris Davis doubled home two Oakland runs in the fourth inning as the A's improved to 25 games above .500.  

Christin Stewart hit a solo shot in defeat.  Daniel Norris took the loss, falling to 3-and-12.

Detroit became the first MLB team to lose 100 games this season.

In Florida, Tyler Glasnow struck out five over two innings in his return from a four-month layoff caused by a strained right forearm, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Toronto 8-3 to complete a four-game sweep that left the Blue Jays on pace to lose 100 games.

Toronto has lost seven straight, its longest skid since April 2017 and 16 of its last 19.

At 55-89, the Blue Jays are on pace to lose 100 games for the first time since 1977-79, their first three seasons.
