|Moss: 3-3, HR 4 RBI|

Outfield prospect Brandon Moss went 3-for-3 with a pair of singles and a home run. The lefty slugger, whose longest major league stint was 133 games with the Pirates in 2009, drove in four runs and is batting a brisk .526 this spring with 10 hits in 19 at-bats.
The A's won their 8th road game and lead the Cactus League with a 13-4 record.
