Davis, Cahill help A's pick up win over Detroit


DETROIT – Rajai Davis scored twice and Trevor Cahill continued to pitch well as the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 4-1 on Monday.

The win was Oakland's third of the four-game series and fifth out of seven during their ongoing 10-game trip. Detroit has lost five of six.

The start of the game was delayed by nearly three hours due to threatening weather, although no rain fell until more than an hour after the scheduled start. It started to rain again with Detroit batting in the bottom of the eighth, leaving the stadium almost empty by game's end.

Cahill (4-2) won his third straight start, allowing one run on five hits in 6 1-3 innings. Andrew Bailey got the final four outs for his 11th save.
