A's snap out of offensive funk to beat Twins 5-2

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Seth Brown hit a tiebreaking double in the seventh inning, Sean Murphy followed with a two-run single and the Oakland Athletics ended their four-game losing streak against the Twins, beating Minnesota 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Kevin Smith homered to end a long slump and help Oakland break out of its own offensive funk. The A's went into the game with the lowest team batting average in the majors (.199) and had scored one run in each of their three previous games.

"I think it's just what this lineup is capable of every day," Brown said after the A's second win in six games. "We've been hitting the ball really well the last couple of weeks, and finally seeing them fall tonight was a real positive. It's something we needed to see."
