A's hope to stay hot against Twins

The Oakland Athletics are riding homers as they open a four-game road series against the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.

The recent numbers for manager Bob Melvin's A's have been impressive -- six consecutive victories, winners of 12 of 14 and a sizzling 19-5 in their last 24 games.

The club arrives in Minneapolis having swept their six-game homestand and are a season-high 14 games over .500.
