OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics caught Justin Smoak early, ending a wild sequence that began with another eye-popping play by center fielder Ramon Laureano.
But the A's couldn't totally stop Smoak and the Toronto Blue Jays, who finished off a three-game sweep with a 5-4 victory Sunday.
"Over this road trip we finally started swinging the bats," Smoak said after getting four hits, including a home run. "Hopefully we can continue to do that. If we do we'll be in a better position to win some ballgames."
