Jonathan Lucroy hit a walk-off RBI single in the 11th inning of Saturday's win over the Giants.

Lucroy stepped to the dish with two outs in the 11th inning and a pair of runners on base. Facing off with Will Smith, he proceeded to put an end to a game that the A's realistically should have just won in the ninth inning, hitting an RBI single to right to finally put the contest to rest. For the overall campaign, the backstop owns a punchless .241/.296/.311 battling line with one home run and 28 RBI in 75 games played. Lucroy will finish the year with at least one shining moment, though, courtesy of Saturday's heroics.

Blake Treinen suffered a blown save in Saturday's 11-inning win over the Giants, allowing one run on one hit while walking two over two innings of work.

This one almost ended in completely innocuous fashion, as Treinen recorded a pair of quick groundouts before Alen Hanson managed to reach first base on a wild-pitch strikeout. Predictably, Hunter Pence immediately followed that Hanson at-bat with a run-scoring double to tie the score at 3-3. Treinen would eventually make it out of the inning with no further run-scoring damage on his line, even coming back out to pitch a scoreless 10th inning -- not something that you'll often see from a closer who just blew the save. Looking at the reliever's overall body of work this year, Treinen is now 24-of-28 in save chances with a sterling 1.08 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 64/18 K/BB ratio posted over the course of an even 50 innings pitched.

Hunter Pence went 3-for-5 with an RBI double, two total RBI and a steal in Saturday's 11-inning loss to the A's.

Had it not been for Pence, this game would have ended sans bonus cantos, but he twice notched huge hits to keep the Giants alive. The first of those was an RBI single in the seventh inning which drew his crew to within 3-2 on the scoreboard. He worked his magic once more in the ninth inning against Blake Treinen, when he knotted up the score with an RBI double. These groovy hits failed to ultimately propel San Francisco to victory, but it was a game one-man effort from Pence nonetheless. For the campaign as a whole, the outfielder is still slashing a mere .228/.273/.285 with zero home runs and 13 RBI in 49 games played.

Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 11-inning loss to the A's.

Belt was just activated off the paternity leave list earlier on Saturday, and he celebrated the birth of his new bundle of joy in high style, rocking a solo home run off Trevor Cahill with one out in the fourth inning. This summer, the slugger is working to a .287/.383/.487 triple-slash with 14 home runs and 43 RBI across 82 games played.

Trevor Cahill yielded one run on two hits over 5 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Saturday's 11-inning win over the Giants.

Cahill struck out five and walked three in the outing. He left the contest in line for a victory, but the Giants upended that potential decision with solitary runs scored in the seventh and ninth innings. That latter run tied the game at 3-3 and ultimately pushed it to extra innings. Cahill will carry a lovely 2.95 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 55/17 K/BB ratio (58 innings) into a road showdown with the Rangers when he next toes the rubber. A strained right Achilles tendon which took him out of action for about a month earlier this summer is cause for his diminished innings total at this juncture.

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs on two hits while walking six and taking a no-decision in Saturday's 11-inning loss to the A's.

Just a nightmare of a day in terms of control for the veteran ace. No frame proved more frustrating than the fifth for Bumgarner. He came out to start that frame, but would not record an out before being relieved of duty, issuing four walks in the frame, including two which drove in runs with the bases loaded. To put Mad-Bum's six free passes in context, his previous highest walk tally for a start was four back on June 16. He had not issued more than three walks in any of his previous five outings before tossing them out like candy at a parade on Saturday. Bumgarner will look for a considerably crisper performance when he brings his 3.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 46/23 K/BB ratio (53 2/3 innings) into a home date with the Brewers next time out.
