OAKLAND , Calif. (AP) — Ramon Laureano reached his hands out to each side and knew he had his first major league hit at last, a big one at that to end the game.Laureano somehow forced himself to relax with the game on the line and two outs in the 13th inning, having already failed at the plate four times in his big league debut.He came through this time as he singled home the winning run for his first major league hit, sending the Oakland Athletics past the Detroit Tigers 1-0 on Friday night.“I’m shocked, I’m speechless,” he said. “It’s awesome. I could have never imagined it this way.”After going hitless with two strikeouts before his milestone single, Laureano finally ended the game that went 3 hours, 32 minutes with a clean hit to right against Buck Farmer (3-4). Laureano clapped his hands and rounded the bases to be greeted with some star treatment.Soon after, he took a celebratory pie in the face and a Gatorade shower from his teammates. Once inside, they got him with beer and tomato juice, “everything that you can imagine.”The souvenir baseball and his bat will go home with his parents for safekeeping.Jose Iglesias hit a two-out single in the top of the 13th against winner Emilio Pagan (3-0) and stole second. When catcher Jonathan Lucroy’s throw went into center, Iglesias tried for third and was got thrown out — a play that was upheld on replay review when the Tigers challenged.Yusmeiro Petit pitched perfect 11th and 12th innings for the A’s, who remained in the lead for the second AL wild card.Matt Olson doubled to start the 10th against Victor Alcantara but pinch-runner Franklin Barreto was thrown out at third.Right fielder Stephen Piscotty made a beautiful run-saving catch to end the 10th on a liner by Iglesias.Matt Chapman and Jed Lowrie hit back-to-back singles with one out in the ninth against Alex Wilson .Blake Treinen struck out four over two innings on a night both starters shined but had nothing to show for it.Tigers left-hander Blaine Hardy gave up Lowrie’s infield single to begin the seventh inning for the A’s first hit, ending a no-hit bid. Hardy had issued only a pair of walks to Olson — the first on a 13-pitch plate appearance in the second. Before the walk, Olson’s drive to right went to a crew chief review and was confirmed as sailing just right of the pole.“As soon as that ball was hit by Lowrie kind of in the hole, I knew he’s got some speed, he’s going to be safe David Ross Jersey ,” Hardy said.Hardy struck out six over seven scoreless innings, done after a career-high 106 pitches in a 0-0 game.A’s lefty counterpart Brett Anderson retired his first 16 batters in order before Iglesias doubled with one out in the sixth.Until the winning run, only Iglesias had gone as far as third base.Oakland won its fourth straight after sweeping Toronto on the heels of losing all three last weekend at Colorado.The A’s are 5-0 against the Tigers this season after sweeping a set in Detroit from June 25-28.Hardy was trying to win consecutive starts for the first time since May 27 and June 1, and he pitched well enough to win if the Tigers had scored for him.Anderson allowed two hits, struck out and walked one in his fifth start since coming off the disabled list July 8 from a strained right shoulder.Laureano played center field and batted eighth after his callup earlier in the day.He ran into the wall in center to make a nice catch on No. 2 hitter Nicholas Castellanos‘ deep fly in the first. Laureano ran forward the next time he made a play, going down to his right knee to catch Jeimer Candelario’s liner to end the second.While he got a feel for how the Coliseum outfield plays, the hit meant so much.“You couldn’t ask for a much better first hit,” Anderson said. “I’m sure he’ll remember that forever.”TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: RHP Mike Fiers, whose name came up in trade chatter around the A’s at this week’s deadline, should make his next turn in the rotation with an extra day after leaving Wednesday’s game with a bruised left shin after taking a line drive against the Reds. … LHP Daniel Norris, recovering from a left groin injury that has sidelined him since April 29, is still experiencing soreness and his status for the rest of the season is in doubt. “He’s got to be pain-free,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. … RHP Michael Fulmer (left oblique strain) is in Lakeland, Florida, rehabbing. “We’ve told him to be calm in a lot of different ways,” Gardenhire said. “You can’t push this thing.”Athletics: If Chad Pinder got through his Friday batting practice with no issues as he recovers from a laceration on his left elbow, the A’s plan to activate him from the disabled list ahead of the interleague opener at home against the Dodgers on Tuesday.UP NEXTTigers: RHP Jordan Zimmerman (4-3 Steve Cishek Jersey , 4.44 ERA) tries to end a three-start skid after going just three innings his last time out. He is 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA and eight strikeouts in his initial three career starts vs. the A’s.Athletics: Coming off career win No. 100, RHP Edwin Jackson (2-2, 3.32) pitches the middle game of the series after making his A’s debut at Detroit on June 25. NEW YORK — As the New York Yankees start the final month, their roster will be getting some significant fortifications via a trade and a key piece returning from the disabled list.Andrew McCutchen and Gary Sanchez are expected to be in the lineup Saturday afternoon when the Yankees continue a four-game series with the Detroit Tigers.The Yankees also acquired infielder Adeiny Hechavarria in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.Article continues below ...Masahiro Tanaka will start for the Yankees and Daniel Norris will return from a lengthy disabled-list stint because of a groin injury to start for Detroit.McCutchen and Sanchez are joining the Yankees after an eventful 7-5 Yankees win on Friday night. New York’s 10th win in 14 games was decided on a bases-loaded, two-run single by rookie Gleyber Torres in the eighth inning off Alex Wilson after a controversial check-swing walk by Luke Voit off Joe Jimenez.McCutchen was acquired from the San Francisco Giants on Friday for two prospects — infielder Abiatal Avelino and pitcher Juan De Paula.Friday was the last day players could be traded and still be eligible to appear in postseason games for their new teams.McCutchen was in his first season with the Giants after spending his first nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. McCutchen batted .255 with 15 homers and 55 RBIs in 130 games while posting a .357 on-base percentage.“We’re getting a really good player,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I think that’s exciting for us and I’m just looking forward to him getting here tomorrow, hopefully putting him in the lineup and seeing him help us. “Last week when the Giants visited the New York Mets, McCutchen cleared waivers and when informed about it, he quipped: “I’ve got a better chance of understanding trigonometry.”What the Yankees understood was they possess a right field problem since Aaron Judge is finishing his fifth week of being on the disabled list with a fractured right wrist. While Giancarlo Stanton has manned right field at times, the Yankees would like to use him at designated hitter. But New York’s right fielders are hitting a combined .189 (23-for-122) in Judge’s absence.When McCutchen arrives in New York, he will be reunited with Neil Walker and J.A. Happ. Walker spent seven seasons in Pittsburgh playing with McCutchen and Happ spent the final two months of 2015 season with the Pirates.“I saw him for the three years that we made September,” Walker said. “Postseason pushes elevate his game to the next level, not that he needed to do that, but you saw him be the player that he’s capable of being when the spotlight’s on him. That’s fully what I expect when he steps in here.”The Yankees are hoping to see some big hits from Sanchez, who has missed 57 games in two DL stints with a groin injury. Sanchez last played July 23 in Tampa Bay, and he is trying to improve on a subpar season that has seen him bat .188 with 14 homers and 42 RBIs in 66 games.Sanchez tuned up for his return by homering twice in four rehab games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre.“I think we’re getting potentially a front-line player and a guy that will be an absolute presence in our lineup,” Boone said.The Tigers totaled 12 hits Friday but lost for the sixth time in seven games. Niko Goodrum homered for the second straight night and Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 Drew Smyly Jersey , giving him a .339 average (21-for-62) in his last 17 games.“I’m just proud of our guys,” said Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire, whose team came into the series after getting outscored 34-10 during a five-game losing streak. “I’m proud of the way they played. We’re in a big atmosphere here.”Tanaka (9-5, 3.97 ERA) starts for the Yankees after allowing four runs and 10 hits in seven innings Monday against the Chicago White Sox. He is 0-3 with a 4.40 ERA in his last five starts.Tanaka is 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA in five career starts against Detroit. He is 0-3 with a 5.71 ERA in three home starts against the Tigers.Norris was 0-2 with a 5.87 ERA in five appearances (two starts) this season, but he has been on the disabled list since April 30.Norris appeared in four rehab games at three different levels and compiled a 2.31 ERA in 11 2/3 innings. His velocity was around 91, 92 mph and he is stretched out to 90 pitches, according to Gardenhire.Norris last appeared for the Tigers on April 29 in Baltimore when he exited after three innings. He underwent surgery after pitching with the groin problem since last summer.“I’m just happy to be here,” Norris said. “Obviously appreciative of the opportunity. It was definitely an interesting year, rehabbing the whole time pretty much. I started with kind of a frustrating April, getting surgery and then going through that. It was difficult but I’m happy to be here.”The 25-year-old left-hander was one of three pitchers acquired from Toronto at the 2015 non-waiver trade deadline for David Price. Since joining Detroit, Norris has been on the disabled list four times with oblique, back, hip, quadriceps and groin issues.Norris is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two career appearances (one start) against the Yankees.
