At the plate: Right-fielder Jordan Danks is making a late push with two hits, including an RBI double in the third.

On the mound: Ramon Troncoso cracked a fingernail on his pitching hand after retiring two batters. Troncoso has a shot at making the opening day roster if a reliever is injured.

In the field: A popup that fell between shortstop Alexei Ramirez and outfielders Dayan Viciedo and Dewayne Wise was reminiscent of disasters of previous seasons, as the A's went on to score three runs in the second.
