Oakland A's continue to dominate punchless Detroit Tigers
The A's stranded two more in the seventh when reliever Drew VerHagen struck out Jed Lowrie.
The Athletics have won five straight during their sustained push for a playoff spot. They have given up just seven runs during the winning streak.
Detroit is 0-6 against the Athletics this season after dropping the first two games of the series, including a 1-0, 13-inning loss on Friday. Dating back to last season, the Tigers have lost 11 straight to Oakland.
A miscue led to the Tigers' first-inning run. Leadoff hitter JaCoby Jones hit a shallow fly to left, and Oakland shortstop Marcus Semien and left fielder Nick Martini collided on the play as the ball dropped in. Martini was charged with a two-base error. Jones scored on Candelario's two-out single.
Oakland loaded the bases in the first, but Zimmermann escaped the jam when Stephen Piscotty lined out to right.
The A's used the long ball to take the lead in the third. Chapman led off the inning with a homer to center, his 14th. One out later, Davis drilled a no-doubter to left-center for his 30th homer this season.
Oakland left a runner on third in the fourth. The A's stranded two more in the seventh when reliever Drew VerHagen struck out Jed Lowrie.
