    Olson went back-to-back with teammate Matt Chapman in the fifth inning, blasting a 387-foot homer to right field. The long ball extended his hitting streak to 11 games, during which he has gone 13-for-46 with four homers and eight runs batted in.

    Olson went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double, a walk and three runs in a win over the White Sox on Saturday.

    Impact

    Olson crossed the plate more than any other teammate during the Athletics' 13-run outburst, and his multi-hit effort extended his hitting streak to nine games. Olson already has seven RBI over his first eight games of July as well, and he's knocked in 27 of his 39 runs for the season since June 1.

    Olson went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in a victory over Seattle on Sunday.

    Impact

    Olson did all of his damage in the first inning, plating Oakland's first three runs with a 434-foot moonshot to right field. The 25-year-old has now racked up eight homers in his last 15 games, knocking in 15 runs over that stretch. On the season, he is slashing .252/.328/.570 with 19 home runs and 38 RBI in 214 at-bats.

    Olson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Mariners.

    Impact

    Olson's blast off Mariners starter Marco Gonzales extended the Athletics' lead to 2-0 in the third inning. Olson has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, batting .266 with five homers and nine RBI in that span. For the season, he's hitting .250/.332/.557 with 18 homers, 35 RBI and 32 runs scored in 56 games.

    News

    Olson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday in the Athletics' 8-6 win over the Twins.

    Impact

    Any concerns about Olson's ability to hit for power coming off March surgery to repair a broken hamate bone in his right hand have dissipated at this point. Since coming off the injured list in early May, Olson has mashed 17 home runs in just 50 games, putting him on track to surpass his career-high 29 from 2018, when he needed the full 162-game slate to achieve that production.
