Mengden throws 7 scoreless, A's sweep Tigers with 3-2 win

DETROIT (AP) Now that he's healthy, Daniel Mengden is showing his potential.

The Oakland right-hander pitched seven scoreless innings, and Marcus Semien homered and drove in three runs, leading the Athletics to a 3-2 win and three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday.

Mengden (2-1) allowed seven hits and struck out four, extending his scoreless streak to 16 1/3 innings and helping the A's to their fourth consecutive win. The 24-year-old missed the first two months of the season after undergoing offseason foot surgery and was making his fifth major league start this year.
