Athletics Vs. Padres Final Score: Oakland Can't Manage Sweep, Loses 2-1

On Sunday afternoon, the Oakland Athletics sent Bartolo Colon to the mound to try to secure a series sweep over interleague opponents the San Diego Padres and pick up Oakland's sixth straight win. Unfortunately, Colon and the A's took the loss by a final score of 2-1 as Oakland's offense finally took a day off after being red-hot for most of a week.

The Padres plated their first run in the top of the third on a fielder's choice. Their second and final run in the top of the ninth was just as unorthodox, as Logan Forsythe came in to score on a wild pitch by Ryan Cook.

The A's had four walks and six hits in the game but were just 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position. The A's left 10 runners on base and had no extra-base hits in the game. Colon ended up leaving the game in the third inning with an oblique strain.
