A bleak May day at Yankee Stadium ended with a lackluster A's loss on Sunday afternoon, their fifth in six games. Following a two-hour, 45-minute rain delay, lefty Brett Anderson surrendered three runs in the first inning of an eventual 6-2 loss to the Yankees, dropping the A's two games under .500 (19-21) for the first time since April 20.

The American League West finds itself stocked with stars, from Mike Trout to Jose Altuve to Robinson Cano to Adrian Beltre and beyond. Everyone is aware of the aces and the sluggers, but every team has other players fans don't know much about. Here's a look at five key contributors in the AL West who aren't big names, but are stepping up early this season under the radar in their respective roles.
The A's went quietly Wednesday afternoon, swept in three games by the Astros following a pair of late-inning homers in a 4-1 loss at the Coliseum.
At last, Dustin Fowler got the at-bat he was robbed of during his big league debut. The A's promoted the highly touted outfield prospect ahead of Wednesday's series finale against the Astros and plan to give him his first starting assignment opposite the team that drafted him. Ahead of time, they gave Fowler an at-bat in the seventh inning Wednesday, and Fowler softly lined out on the second pitch.
The words did not escape Stephen Piscotty in this moment. It would have been understandable if they had, given the circumstances. But the A's outfielder, sprinkled with questions by a crowd of mostly strangers hovering over him in the home dugout Wednesday morning, channeled the bravery mom Gretchen so strongly radiated during her yearlong battle with ALS and wholeheartedly embraced the opportunity to talk about her.
