  • Athletics' Sean Murphy: Paces offense Friday

    Murphy went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two total RBI in Friday's 3-1 win over the Mariners.

    Murphy opened the scoring with an RBI single in the fifth inning and added a solo shot in the seventh to restore a two-run lead. This was his fourth multi-hit game in his last nine, but he hadn't posted an extra-base hit in that span prior to Friday. The catcher is slashing .224/.297/.406 with nine homers, 32 RBI, 29 runs scored, a stolen base and 17 doubles through 283 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Sean Murphy: Hot hitting continues Wednesday

    Murphy went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Murphy's fourth multi-hit effort in the last 12 games pushed his slash line over that span to .302/.375/.558 across 48 plate appearances. The 27-year-old backstop's .216 average and .291 on-base percentage for the season still have plenty of room for improvement, but both figures are certainly on an upswing at the moment thanks to his hot hitting.
