He was also able to dance out of a jam in the fourth inning without giving up a run after Oakland had loaded the bases with nobody out.

Even better than the young man wearing an old-school retro jersey was that he made the one-handed snare with a toothpick in his mouth the entire time.

Will the A's pull off the upset in Tampa when they take on the Rays at 2:10PM ET for Game 1 of a Saturday double-header?

"We've got to try to move forward", Rays third baseman Evan Longoria said.

OUR PREDICTION: Ramirez has been great at home (3-0, 2.86 ERA in seven appearances - three starts - at home in 2017), but has struggled in each of his last two outings.

Longoria worked a full count and roped Hendriks' offering down the left-field line to score Peter Bourjos and extend the Rays' win streak to four games.

Cobb (5-5), coming off a start Saturday at Seattle in which he allowed nine runs and 14 hits over five innings, gave up one run and four hits.

The Rays' chances of sweeping their first doubleheader since 2014 ended with a pair of long home runs in the seventh inning.

Featherston will be the primary backup to first baseman Logan Morrison. "We left a lot (13) on base".

The 27-year-old IN native has a.329 on-base percentage with 10 stolen bases and seven home runs through 62 games this season after signing a six-year, $53.5 million contract extension. The hardest ball hit in the inning was an inning ending double play ball off the bat of Ryon Healy.

A's center fielder Jaycob Brugman got his first major league hit, a sixth-inning single off Ramirez.

Shortstop Matt Duffy, out following offseason Achilles tendon surgery, was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

The last regularly scheduled doubleheader in the majors was on July 11, 2011, when the A's hosted the Angels.

Kiermaier was put on the 10-day disabled list. The Athletics called up OF Matt Olson from Triple-A Nashville and reinstated LHP Sean Doolittle (left shoulder) from the 10-day DL to be the 26th man.
