A's slug, pitch past Tigers 7-0 for 7th straight win

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Superstitious manager Bob Melvin ditched his in-game candy habit during Oakland's awful start. Now that things have drastically trended upward, Melvin is sticking with a couple of favorite, lucky pens and specific parking places for now.

He doesn't dare change a thing - the A's are slugging it again, and the pitching has been impressive.

Matt Olson, Aramis Garcia and Mark Canha each homered and the defending AL West champs shut out the Detroit Tigers for a second straight game, 7-0 on Saturday for their seventh consecutive win.
