Hunter tallies three hits in loss

DETROIT — Pine Bluff native Torii Hunter had three hits, including a home run, but the Tigers lost 14-4 to the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday.

Hunter’s homer to left was one of three hits in the home third, bu the A’s piled on seven runs over a two-inning span, starting with the four-run fifth.

Oakland’s Brandon Moss hit pair of home runs and a career-high six RBIs as the A’s banged out a season-high 21 hits.

Moss, who leads the A’s with 24 homers this year, belted a two-run shot in the sixth inning and added a three-run blast in the eighth as part of a 4-for-5 performance.
