OAKLAND -- Right-hander Jesse Hahn pitched his first career shutout, allowing just four hits to guide the A's to their third straight win on Monday, a 4-0 shutout of the Tigers in the three-game series opener at the Coliseum.
"The way his sinker was going, it wasn't tough to call a game for him today," said A's catcher Stephen Vogt. "He, from inning No. 1, had his sinker going today, he was throwing it with conviction, with confidence. He was some kind of disgusting with his sinker."
