KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The struggling Oakland Athletics took
advantage of some bumbling Kansas City defense to pile up their
most offense in more than three weeks, helping them snap a
nine-game losing streak with a 9-3 victory over the Royals on
Saturday.
Brandon McCarthy (4-3) came off the disabled list to throw six
innings, Jemile Weeks reached base four times and Josh Reddick had
a two-run triple during a four-run fifth for Oakland.
The A's nine runs surpassed their total from the previous six
games combined.
One of the worst offenses in baseball hardly looked like it
against Luke Hochevar (3-6), who has become something of a salve
for scuffling attacks. The former first overall draft pick allowed
six runs in 4 2-3 innings, the sixth time he's failed to get past
the fifth this season.
