The Oakland Athletics put left-hander Jesus Luzardo on the injured list Sunday with a hairline fracture in his finger, an injury he suffered while playing a video game.

A's manager Bob Melvin said Luzardo hit his left hand on a table while playing the game before Saturday's start against the Baltimore Orioles.

After getting his hand checked out by the team's training staff and testing it out during warmups, Luzardo was able to start the game as planned. However, he left after giving up six runs (three earned) in three innings and throwing a pair of wild pitches in an 8-4 loss.

  A's extend win streak to 13 with 7-2 victory over Orioles BALTIMORE (AP) — The Oakland Athletics were not deterred by a six-game losing streak to open the season. They were simply going to “Ride the Wave,” a mantra the team embraced to get past the adversity. Jed Lowrie hit a three-run homer and the Athletics won their 13th straight game, building a big lead early and beating the Baltimore Orioles 7-2 on a rainy Saturday night. “You just go out there and grind on it," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said about the challenging conditions. “Play as long as you can until someone says it's no longer playable.”This is the third-longest winning streak in Oakland history.
