The A's were on the winning end on Tuesday with 25 hits -- their most in a nine-inning game since June 14, 1969 (a game that also ended 21-7). Six players had three hits (nobody had four) while Matt Olson and recent call-up Sean Murphy each slugged two home runs. In that 1969 game, Reggie Jackson went 5-for-6 with 10 RBIs.
