Following the All-Star break, the A's and Giants will resume play across the Bay for a three-game set in Oakland, beginning with Friday's 6:35 p.m. PT matchup. The A's have taken 14 of their last 20 against the Giants at the Coliseum. Edwin Jackson takes the mound for Oakland, and he will be opposed by Dereck Rodriguez.
Blake Treinen received an extended ovation from his former home crowd when he was introduced at Nationals Park before the All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday. He responded with a smile and a wave, soaking in his first appearance in the Midsummer Classic.
The ball wasn't flying out of Nationals Park quite as frequently as it did during Bryce Harper's heroic hometown homer binge a night earlier, but it was flying all the same in a dinger-driven, record-breaking 89th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday night.
It was only appropriate that the A's capped their fruitful first half with a win Sunday. The American League Wild Card contenders put together a four-run fourth inning that fueled a 6-2 victory over the Giants behind Sean Manaea, taking two of three from their Bay rivals at AT&T Park.

The 20th edition of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game had no shortage of big moments, with the two sides combining for eight home runs -- doubling the previous Futures Game record -- as Team USA outslugged the World, 10-6, on All-Star Sunday at Nationals Park. Here is a recap of each player's performance, with a breakdown of each club's representatives.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Monday.
Seeking to set a single-game attendance record during this weekend's Bay Bridge Series against the crosstown-rival Giants, the A's announced on Monday that they will open Mount Davis, an upper-deck section in center field at the Oakland Coliseum.
Led by closer Blake Treinen, the A's earned MLB Bullpen of the Week presented by The Hartford for the period of July 9-15.
Mark Canha's first career pinch-hit home run -- a go-ahead, two-run blast off lefty Tony Watson in the seventh inning -- catapulted the A's to a 4-3 victory over the Giants on Saturday night at AT&T Park. With a Mariners loss in Colorado, Oakland is positioned just four games back of the second American League Wild Card spot with one to play before the All-Star break. Brett Anderson was knocked around for eight hits in just 3 1/3 innings.
Veteran reliever Santiago Casilla, who has spent the entirety of his 15-year career in the Bay Area, was designated for assignment ahead of the A's second meeting with the Giants on Saturday.
The A's usual late-inning shenanigans were missing in Friday night's 7-1 loss to the Giants at AT&T Park. Instead, their neighbors mimicked them in the Bay Bridge Series opener, pouncing for five runs in a disastrous seventh inning after the A's squandered their own opportunity in the top half of the frame.
A's second baseman Jed Lowrie is considered day to day after suffering a bone bruise in his left lower leg during Friday night's 7-1 loss in San Francisco.
Jeremy Bleich is finally a big leaguer. It only took 10 years. The A's promoted the 31-year-old pitcher from Triple-A Nashville ahead of Friday's series opener in San Francisco, swapping out Josh Lucas for a second lefty reliever.
The A's sealed a four-game series victory against the host Astros in familiar fashion Thursday afternoon, scoring six unanswered runs to take their third of four games over Houston at Minute Maid Park. After Matt Chapman tied it in the eighth with an RBI double, Mark Canha struck a two-run single to left that just stayed fair to give Oakland the lead. Alex Bregman started the Astros off with a two-run double, and Tony Kemp homered, but starter Charlie Morton labored as he and Chris Devenski let up three runs each.
With less than three weeks until the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, things are heating up.
Buchter's glove skills prove you never give up
The A's jumped out to a six-run lead Wednesday en route to an 8-3 victory over the Astros at Minute Maid Park. Chad Pinder's three-run homer in the fourth capped the assault against Houston righty Lance McCullers Jr., whose wild ways (5 walks, 2 HBPs) fueled the booming A's. Oakland rang up three runs before starter Chris Bassitt, who pitched five strong innings to get the win, even took the mound, with Khris Davis' two-run double highlighting a three-run first inning. A two-run single by Yuli Gurriel in the fourth and solo homer by Tyler White in the fifth cut the deficit to three runs, but the Astros would get no closer.
The A's staged a remarkable rally in Houston on Tuesday night but ultimately landed on the wrong end of a wild 6-5 affair that spanned 11 innings at Minute Maid Park.
A's second baseman Jed Lowrie was named as the injury replacement on Tuesday for Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres in the 2018 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Wednesday.
Unable to crack the Astros in their previous eight meetings, the surging A's prevailed with a 2-0 victory over their American League West division foes in Monday's series opener at Minute Maid Park. Stephen Piscotty staked them to a 1-0 lead with his third homer in as many days, launched in the seventh inning against righty Brad Peacock after the A's worked Gerrit Cole for 108 pitches through six. Piscotty was back for more in the eighth, delivering an insurance run with an RBI single.
Brett Anderson, fresh off the 10-day disabled list and facing the Indians for the first time since 2012, tossed five scoreless innings to set the tone as the A's cruised to a shutout win over the Indians on Sunday at Progressive Field. Stephen Piscotty and Jed Lowrie both homered for the second straight game to power the Athletics' offense in the series-clinching win. Shane Bieber struck out seven for the Tribe, which was 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position.
The Athletics' injury carousel continues as left-hander Brett Anderson returned from the 10-day disabled list from a left shoulder strain Sunday only for right-hander Paul Blackburn to take his place.
The Athletics couldn't figure out Corey Kluber all day, but as soon as the Cy Young Award winner headed to the bench, their offense awoke. Behind home runs from Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis and Stephen Piscotty, the A's stormed back against the Indians bullpen for an 11-inning win on Saturday at Progressive Field. Kluber pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing five hits and striking out three. Indians reliever Neil Ramirez allowed the runs that tied the game in the eighth -- a two-run homer to Lowrie and a solo shot to Davis.
The Oakland A's have placed outfielder Matt Joyce on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to July 5 due to a lumbar strain, and have recalled outfielder Nick Martini from Triple-A Nashville.
The A's welcomed Indians starter Carlos Carrasco off the disabled list with some authoritative power on Friday night. Center fielder Dustin Fowler led the game off by sending a 2-1 fastball deep into the right-field stands to put the A's on the board. The homer marked Fowler's sixth of the season
The American League West had four teams above .500 for most of the first three months of the season, but is evolving into a two-team race between the Astros and Mariners. With the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaching, clubs now have to decide where they stand, what their needs are and what they hope to accomplish leading up to that crucial date.
Stephen Piscotty had three RBIs, including a go-ahead two-run double, his third of the day, with the bases loaded in the eighth inning as the A's beat the Padres. Sean Manaea and Luis Perdomo started the game locked in a duel, each allowing two runs on four hits. Manaea notched his fifth consecutive quality start, and Perdomo impressed in his first start since April 18. Oakland now stands 40-0 when leading after eight innings.
Prepared for the worst but hoping for the best, A's starter Andrew Triggs was relieved to land in the latter camp following his latest examination.

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Tuesday.
Oakland's season-high six-game win streak came to an end after a 15-3 loss to the Indians at the Coliseum on Sunday. Cleveland pounded out 20 hits -- including a season-high 11 doubles -- as the A's bullpen allowed 12 earned runs.
Edwin Jackson earned his first win with the A's, allowing two runs on two hits -- fourth-inning homers by Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez -- while striking out six batters over 6 2/3 innings of work. Josh Phegley tied the game with a two-run blast in the sixth, and Matt Olson hit his 18th home run of the season in the eighth with his own two-run shot. Cleveland's Adam Plutko pitched four perfect innings before finding trouble in the sixth, allowing three runs in the loss.
