6:28 AM UTC

MLB.com is keeping track of a Stat of the Day for the A's this season, highlighting a unique, interesting or fun nugget from each game.

April 16: A's 3, Tigers 0 -- From 0-6 to .500 in no time
The A's extended their American League-best winning streak to six games, quickly putting their six-game losing streak to begin the season in the rearview mirror. The last time that the A's had a winning and losing streak of at least six games in the same month was June 2011, when they lost eight in a row from June 1-9 and won six in a row from June 15-21.

April 15: A's 8, Tigers 4 -- Two more hits for Lowrie
Jed Lowrie's 2-for-4 night marked his fifth straight multi-hit game, which matches the longest such streak of his career. The last time he turned in five consecutive multi-hit performances was July 5-9, 2014, during his first stint with the A's.

April 13: A's 7, D-backs 5 -- No ordinary HR for Brown
Seth Brown's second Major League home run provided the game-winning run for the A's in the eighth inning of their comeback against the D-backs on Tuesday. He's the first Oakland player to knock a game-winning homer within his first two career home runs -- and in the eighth inning or later -- since Franklin Barreto on July 4, 2017.

April 12: A's 9, D-backs 5 -- All Canha does is score runs
After scoring a pair of runs on Monday night, Mark Canha now leads the Major Leagues this season with 12. The last A's player to lead the league in runs scored was Rickey Henderson, who tallied 119 in 1990.

April 10: A's 7, Astros 3 -- Quality starts lead to series win
Sean Manaea and Frankie Montas posted nearly identical statlines to propel the A's to their first series victory of the season. Both pitchers allowed just one earned run across six innings of work (with Montas pitching into the seventh) while walking one and allowing six hits. Montas struck out five batters to Manaea's four.

April 9: A's 6, Astros 2 -- Lowrie's first HR in years!
Jed Lowrie's fourth-inning solo home run was his first big fly since Sept. 29, 2018, which came during his previous stint with the A's.

April 8: Astros 6, A's 2 -- A catcher breaks through
Aramis Garcia's pinch-hit single in the ninth inning was the first hit by an A's catcher this season. Garcia and fellow backstop Sean Murphy were a combined 0-for-25 to that point.

April 7: A's 4, Dodgers 3 -- Laureano's stolen bags in first seven games
stole two bases during one game for the second time in his career on Wednesday, bringing his total to four steals on the season, which matches the most by an A’s player over the first seven games of the season in the last 23 years. Rajai Davis also stole four bases over the first seven games of the 2010 campaign.

April 6: Dodgers 5, A's 1 -- A's tie franchise-worst start
A rough start to the regular season for the A's reached historic heights with Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Dodgers. Now with a record of 0-6, they've matched the 1916 Philadelphia A's for the worst start to a season in franchise history. That 1916 club won its seventh game before finishing with a franchise-record 117 defeats.

April 5: Dodgers 10, A's 3 -- A rough start continues
The A's have started this season 0-5, which matches their worst start to a season since moving to Oakland in 1968. The 1979 and 1987 A's also started the regular season 0-5 before winning their sixth game of the season.

April 4: Astros 9, A's 2 -- Bats silent in series sweep
The A’s never led at any point in the 36 innings played against the Astros in their season-opening four-game series, marking the first time they’ve never led in such a series since July 19-22, 2017 ... which also came against the Astros at the Coliseum.

April 3: Astros 9, A's 1 -- Guduan goes wild
had three wild pitches in the ninth inning, which tied an Oakland record for most wild pitches in a game by a reliever. Fernando Arroyo threw three wild pitches in a game against the Rangers on July 4, 1982.

April 2: Astros 9, A's 5 -- Taking it for the team
was hit by a pitch for the 54th time in his career, which tied Miguel Tejada for fifth-most in Oakland history. The club record for most hit-by-pitches is 59 by Sal Bando.

April 1: Astros 8, A's 1 -- Another Coliseum Opening Day
The A's were the home team on Opening Day for the 12th straight season, hosting the Astros at Oakland Coliseum. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that sets an American League record for consecutive openers as the home team, breaking the mark of 11 held by the Rangers/Senators (1961-71), Orioles (1996-2006) and Rays (2010-20).
