This was one of those games that once the offense got going, I knew the outcome was never in doubt so I was doing school work while watching. The game summary is courtesy of our friend Chad Jennings at Lohud.

Trevor Cahill, second in the AL in ERA, allowed eight earned runs in four innings. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano each had three hits off him — including back-to-back home runs — and it was Marcus Thames who went deep off the A’s bullpen for his sixth home run in as many games.
