(OAKLAND, CA) – Trevor Cahill struck out 10 batters in six innings, while Krhis Davis and Matt Chapman both homered for the second consecutive game as the A's beat the Detroit Tigers 6-0 on Sunday to complete a weekend and season sweep. Matt Olson also homered and Ramon Laureano added three hits and an RBI to help the streaking A's win their sixth in a row overall. Oakland won all seven games against Detroit this season and has a franchise-record 12 consecutive victories over the Tigers. Cahill (4-2) was masterful in one of his most dominant outings this season. The right-hander walked one and yielded three hits while pitching through traffic much of the afternoon. Cahill retired Jim Aducci on a swinging strikeout with the bases loaded to end the first, got James McCann to line out with a runner at second in the fourth and then struck out Jeimer Candelario looking to end the sixth. It's the first time Cahill has won three consecutive starts since 2012. Yusmiero Petit, Lou Trivino and Ryan Buchter finished the five-hitter. Davis provided all the offense Cahill needed with his 31st home run leading off the fourth against Tigers starter Francisco Liriano (3-6). Chapman hit his 15th homer, a two-run shot off Daniel Stumpf, in the seventh. Olson homered in the eighth, his 22nd. Mike Gerber had two hits for Detroit.
