Worth noting

• Yoenis Cespedes entered Wednesday one home run shy of 20, and should he reach that mark before season's end, it would be the first time the A's have had two players hit 20 or more home runs in a season since 2007 (Jack Cust, Nick Swisher). Josh Reddick has 29.

• The A's struck out nine times on Tuesday, thus entering Wednesday with an American League-leading 1,241 on the season, which is an ongoing A's franchise record. Moreover, it is the seventh-highest single-season total in AL history. The AL record is 1,324, set by Tampa Bay in 2007.
