A's end skid vs. Angels

BY foxsports • July 18, 2009

Joe Saunders struggled with his command all night. His errant pickoff attempt to first base was the perfect example of how things went.

Speedy Rajai Davis scored the go-ahead run from first in the sixth inning on Saunders' miscue, and the Oakland Athletics snapped a four-game home losing streak to the rival Los Angeles Angels with a 7-3 victory Friday night.

"It was a combination of hustle along the bases and (third-base coach Mike Gallego) waving me on. He was my eyes when I couldn't see," Davis said. "Not only were we aggressive on the basepaths, we were able to take advantage with men on base."
