1:12 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.

May 6: Blue Jays 10, A's 4 -- Leadoff power
Mark Canha's home run to lead off the bottom of the first was the first leadoff homer of his career and the first leadoff homer by an A's hitter this season.

May 5: Blue Jays 9, A's 4 -- All streaks come to an end
The A's led 3-2 after seven innings on Wednesday before the Blue Jays scored five times in the eighth and went on to win. This marked the first time this season that the A's lost a game when leading after six or seven innings. They hadn't lost a game they led through six innings since Sept. 6, 2019 -- so Wednesday snapped a franchise-record 49-game winning streak in such circumstances.

May 4: A's 4, Blue Jays 1 -- Lowrie, master of the multi-hit game
Jed Lowrie recorded two more hits on Tuesday, marking his third consecutive multi-hit game. He is now tied for the Major League lead with 12 multi-hit games this season.

May 3: A's 5, Blue Jays 4 -- Lowrie's consecutive 3-hit games
Jed Lowrie collected three hits for the second game in a row, marking the sixth time in his career he's had back-to-back three-hit games. The last time he got three hits in consecutive games was April 5-6, 2018, during his previous stint with the A's.

May 2: A's 7, Orioles 5 -- Canha's hit (by pitch) parade
Mark Canha stands alone! Hit by a pitch for the 60th time in his career from Orioles lefty Bruce Zimmermann in the third inning of Sunday's game, Canha set the Oakland record for hit by pitches, eclipsing Sal Bando's previous mark of 59.

May 1: Orioles 8, A's 4 -- Homers aren't enough in loss
The A's lost their first game of the season when out-homering the opposition on Saturday. Prior to the defeat, the A's were 13-0 when out-homering opponents in a game this year.
