Player Notes
Josh Donaldson hit a solo home run in the sixth inning of the A's 4-3 loss to the Angels on Thursday.

Advice: Donaldson hit the bomb off of Angels starter C.J. Wilson. He also doubled in the contest, finishing 2-for-3 with one RBI and two walks. He has 88 RBI to go with the 26 long balls. While Donaldson's average is down from his breakout 2013 campaign (.256 this year vs .301 in 2013), he's been an integral part of the A's offense this season, having already set a career high in home runs. He's also on-pace to set a career high for RBI. On the year, he's slashing .256/.346/.471.

Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a stolen base Monday in his return to the starting lineup.

Advice: Donaldson didn't play Sunday because of a sore left knee. It was kind of odd to see him attempting a steal with the bad wheel, but it seems it didn't do any damage. Before the nice game tonight he hadn't scored or driven in a run in nine games since Aug. 12.
