Mengden, Semien power A's to sweep of Tigers

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Daniel Mengden followed up a shutout by tossing seven scoreless innings and Marcus Semien drove in all three runs in the Oakland Athletics' 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park.

Mengden (2-1) gave up seven hits but didn't walk a batter while striking out four. The right-hander allowed just two hits while blanking Philadelphia on Friday. Mengden was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sept. 5.

Semien had a run-scoring double and two-run homer for the Athletics (69-83), who swept the three-game series and extended their winning streak to four games. Bruce Maxwell, who left the game in the ninth after getting hit in the catcher's mask by a foul ball, supplied two hits and scored twice.
