Athletics' Billy Butler snaps hitless skid Monday vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler ended an 0-for-20 slump by hitting a single in the first inning Monday but couldn't find another hit across his final four at-bats in his team's 8-7 loss to the Twins.

"I got one, but I had other pitches to hit," Butler said after the game, per the Bay Area News Group. "It’s just not working out for me right now, you know? I got pitches from (Twins’ starter Phil) Hughes after that, pitches to hit from other guys, too."

Butler was unable to find success late against closer Glen Perkins, popping up with a man on base and his team down two.

"I got a pitch from Perkins," Butler said. "I was just swinging, and I’m not getting the results for reasons I can’t see right now."

Butler, who sported a .377 batting average and 1.023 OPS on April 22, is hitting .257/.318/.396 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 101 at-bats due to his recent struggles.

Canha then added a second RBI on an eighth-inning groundout. He's hit .284/.348/.469 with four home runs, 14 RBI and two stolen bases in 81 at-bats.

Athletics' Stephen Vogt homers, drives in five runs vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics' catcher Stephen Vogt went 3 for 5 with a double, a grand slam and five RBI in his team's 8-7 loss to the Twins Monday.

Vogt saw his offense dip last week before blasting two home runs Sunday. He stayed hot out of the gate one night later, smacking his grand slam to give his team the early lead. His ninth-inning RBI double brought his team to within one run with two outs, but he was stranded on second base as the A's failed to complete the comeback.

Vogt has hit .372/.462/.718 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 78 at-bats.

Athletics' Jesse Hahn rocked in loss vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Jesse Hahn took the loss Monday, giving up six earned runs on 10 hits in five-plus innings while striking out five in his team's 8-7 defeat against the Twins.

Hahn (1-2) hadn't allowed more than three earned runs in a start coming into Wednesday's game, and things looked good for a win after a first-inning grand slam gave Oakland a 4-0 lead. The pitcher was knocked around in the second inning, giving up four earned runs to lose his lead. After he was staked to another lead in the top of the sixth, the Twins were able to push across four more runs in the bottom half of the inning, with two being charded to Hahn.

Hahn owns a 4.33 ERA and 16:4 K:BB ratio in 27 innings. He's slated to face the Mariners in Seattle Saturday.

Athletics first baseman Nate Freiman made his rehab debut with Triple-A Nashville Monday, going 0 for 2 with an RBI sacrifice fly.

Freiman played seven innings at first base before being removed from the game. He's recovering from a lumbar muscle strain in his back and could be ready to return to action soon, provided he doesn't suffer a setback during his rehab assignment.
