Athletics Vs. Twins Final Score: Oakland Takes Series With 5-1 Win

Wednesday was another trying day for the Oakland Athletics, as the team found out they would be losing Bartolo Colon for the rest of the season after failing a drug test. Still, the A's managed to keep their focus as they defeated the Minnesota Twins by a final score of 5-1 to capture yet another series at O.co Coliseum.

Josh Reddick hit an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning to open the scoring. The Twins managed to tie things up in the top of the second as Drew Butera picked up an RBI groundout.

The Athletics took the lead for good in the bottom of the third, as Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-run single to make it 3-1 Oakland. Coco Crisp added two insurance runs with an RBI double in the fourth inning and a solo home run in the seventh.
