Reliever Ryan Cook returns to Athletics with strong inning
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Reliever Ryan Cook, who was recalled by the Athletics on Sunday, wasted no time in providing a boost to the Oakland bullpen, pitching one perfect inning during the team's loss to the Astros

Cook struggled mightily in spring training, with an 16.88 Cactus League ERA. That earned him a ticket to Triple-A Nashville, where he threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings before being recalled. 

He retired the side in quick order in the seventh inning, with a groundout, flyout and strikeout. 

"Just getting back to being myself and throwing the baseball the way I know I can," Cook said. "I feel confident in all my pitches right now, so hopefully I can get on a roll and help the team in whatever way they see fit."

Marisnick boosted his average to .364 with eight RBI in 44 at-bats this season.

Astros DH Evan Gattis picks up four RBI in win Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis went 2 for 5 at the plate in Houston's 7-6 win over the Athletics Sunday. Gattis got things going in the third when he ripped an RBI single off Drew Pomeranz to right field, scoring Jake Marisnick and Jose Altuve. 

Then, in the ninth with Houston down 6-5, Gattis cracked a double to center with the bases loaded to chase home the go-ahead run. Gattis has struggled early in the season, but boosted his average to .156 with five RBI in 64 at-bats.

"I'm not going to hit .300 tomorrow," Gattis said. "It's going to be a process, and I need to stick with the appropriate approach and slowly dig my way out of it."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Asher Wojciechowski allowed five runs on five hits in four innings of work in Houston's 7-6 win over the Athletics Sunday.

Wojciechowski ran into issues in the second inning when Josh Reddick ripped a triple over the center fielder's head to bring home a run. Then, Brett Lawrie chipped in a sacrifice fly to score Reddick. His struggles continued into the fourth inning when he allowed runners on second and third with two out for Lawrie, who singled to center to bring home two more runs. Craig Gentry added the final run with an RBI single to left to score Lawrie.

Wojciechowski, who remains 0-1 on the year, ballooned his ERA to 7.31 in 16 innings this season. He will look for his first win of the year Friday against the Mariners.
