A's make it 15 straight over Tigers with 4-1 victory

DETROIT (AP) Once he made it through the first inning, it was smooth sailing for Daniel Mengden.

Mengden pitched seven impressive innings and Nick Hundley and Chad Pinder homered to lift the Oakland Athletics to their 15th straight win over Detroit, 4-1 on Saturday. If the A's beat the Tigers on Sunday, they would tie a franchise record for their longest winning streak against one team. Oakland won 16 in a row over the New York Yankees from 1989-91.

Mengden (1-1) allowed a run and three hits. He walked Nicholas Castellanos and Miguel Cabrera in the first but got out of that jam. Those were the only free passes he issued all day.
