Oakland A’s owner John Fisher and team president Dave Kaval are in Southern Nevada this week to further examine locations for a potential new stadium. Following up their visit to the Las Vegas area last month when they met with a handful of local government officials, Fisher and Kaval on Monday continued their exploration of sites for a possible new stadium that would cost, by team estimates, approximately $1 billion and have 30,000 to 35,000 fixed seats.

Though seemingly in control of the AL Central for the time being, the Detroit Tigers would love to add to their lead.

Raburn looks to continue his hot hitting in the series as the Tigers go for their seventh win in nine games Saturday night against the offensively challenged A’s.

DJ LeMahieu talks about seeing the Yankees three game winning streak come to an end. LeMahieu belted his 5th homer of the season but it wasn’t enough, as Tony Kemp’s three-run shot in the 6th inning gave the A’s the lead for good.

With the Yankees’ offense unable to break through against Oakland’s left-hander Sean Manaea until the sixth inning on Sunday afternoon, it was up to New York’s southpaw Jordan Montgomery to keep his team in the game. Even after allowing a booming home run in the first, Montgomery did just that, buckling down for 5.1 strong frames of three-hit ball with six strikeouts.

Going back home pretty much, and facing the team that I played (for) my whole career. I know it’s going to be a lot of memories coming back to me when I’m there. At the same time, I’ve got to make sure I just go about how I do every day and take care of business.

The combined pitching was so dominant that between Olson’s home run and the bottom of the sixth, 37 batters came to the plate and only 4 managed to hit the ball with an exit velocity of 100 mph or better. However, the Yankees broke through in the bottom of the sixth when Manaea finally lost a little of his command. Clint Frazier drew a full-count walk to lead off the frame, and after a strikeout of DJ LeMahieu and a Manaea balk to advance Frazier to second, Aaron Judge followed with one of his own.
