Mon Jul 1602:48Success on the road lifts A's into contention
The Oakland Athletics have played their way into contention by beating up on teams that are far from it.Oakland enters the All-Star break having won 21 of its last 27, and the A's are only three games behind the second wild card. At 55-42, manager Bob Melvin's Athletics would have the second-best record in the National League if they were in it. Instead, they play in the AL West, where their impressive mark still leaves them eight games behind division-leading Houston.Nevertheless, there have been some encouraging signs for an Oakland team that hasn't finished above .500 since 2014.
