OAKLAND -- Miguel Cabrera was ready, a bat in his hands. The right situation never developed, so the Tigers' slugger never got a chance to hit with multiple runners on base.
The Tigers had trouble getting any baserunners against Athletics right-hander Jesse Hahn, who threw his first career shutout and complete game in a 4-0 victory, sending the Tigers to their third straight loss and sixth of nine overall.
