Athletics: LHP Brett Anderson (3-1, 3.04) is 0-2 with a 3.72 ERA in three career starts against Toronto. It was the only inning where Sanchez allowed a run.

Andujar finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year voting a year ago.

"You're finally watching baseball be played the way it's always been played", Sanchez said of the change. On the fifth pitch, he hit a sharp grounder to first baseman Kendrys Morales, who made the play unassisted.

Oakland manager Bob Melvin said he was impressed with Guerrero's performance at the plate. "For the most part, just inconsistent". "I think it's just gonna take care of itself". "I couldn't buy a 3-up, 3-down inning". "It was coming out of my hand good, I just wasn't able to command it like I usually am".

Pitcher Marcus Stroman, who started the game and pitched seven outstanding innings, compared it to playing with future National Basketball Association phenom Zion Williamson.

A day after his going 1 for 4 with a ninth-inning double in his major league debut, the 20-year-old Guerrero took a called third strike in the first, lined out in the second, walked leading off the fifth, struck out swinging in the sixth and singled in the eighth on a ball up the middle that shortstop Marcus Semien was unable to handle. Two runs came in, but Grichuk's slide initially was ruled to be interference, and the A's came off the field.

North Carolina university on lock down following reports of active shooter
The university's website had a banner alert warning about an " active assailant ", saying, "Campus lockdown continues". The campus was reportedly about to host a concert at the school's football stadium at the time of the shooting.

Thornton, seeking his first big league win, has allowed 13 runs in 12 2/3 innings.

The Blue Jays are 5-8 on their home turf. Grichuk singled home Hanson. Guerrero was even cheered when he picked up a foul ball that rolled down the third-base line and tossed it in the stands. Eric Sogard doubled, Justin Smoak walked and Grichuk singled. Profar went in to the left of the base, legs high, and Sogard's throw was offline and the run came in. The Blue Jays won the last meeting 4-2. "So just to have the opportunity to play with him, it's incredible to look out there and see him behind me at third base".

Oakland couldn't capitalize on the turn of events, though. Anderson struggled from the start, allowing four runs over the first two innings of the start.

Profar continues to be a disappointment for the A's so far after being acquired in a trade with Texas.

"I still feel, and I saw him today when I congratulated him, and I still looked at him and said, 'That's a kid". "And I promise you that, no matter what he's experienced or where he's been, I will guarantee you his heart will be pounding and his knees will be weak at his first at-bat tonight".
