Jose Iglesias finished 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored in Saturday's 6-5 loss in Oakland.

Iglesias is heating up at the plate ever so slightly, as he carries a modest three-game hit streak into Sunday's series finale. The Cuban middle infielder has racked up five runs scored, a double, triple and RBI in 15 at-bats in the month of May. It isn't a monster run by any stretch, but it's a start.
