MLB Note - Oakland Athletics Mengden, Daniel

Sep 21, 2017 - 9:26 AM RHP Daniel Mengden extended his scoreless innings streak to 16 while collecting his second straight win Wednesday. He held Detroit in check for seven innings after tossing a complete-game shutout against Philadelphia. He was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sept. 5. "I hadn't planned on throwing him more than 100 pitches, but the way our bullpen was, we needed him to pitch the seventh, and he felt good enough to do it, and got through it," manager Bob Melvin said after Mengden tossed 106 pitches. "(That's) back-to-back outings that he should get some confidence from."
