DETROIT (AP) — Zach Logue pitched seven scoreless innings in his second major league start and the Oakland Athletics spoiled the debut of Joey Wentz by thumping the floundering Detroit Tigers 9-0.

Sean Murphy and Kevin Smith each drove in two runs and Christian Bethancourt supplied three hits, two runs scored and an RBI for the A’s.

Oakland, which entered Detroit on a nine-game losing streak, is 3-1 in the five-game series.

The Tigers have lost eight of their last nine, scoring two runs or less in each of those defeats.
