Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Stays hot with two hits, steal

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. Though his on-base average sits at an ugly .276 for the season, Andrus has enjoyed a nice surge at the plate in June after struggling mightily during the first two months of the season. Through 16 games on the month, Andrus is slashing .298/.365/.439 with nine runs, seven RBI and two stolen bases. Despite the improved production, Andrus hasn't benefited from a move up the batting order. He'll start at shortstop and bat eighth in Sunday's series finale.

Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Walks it off Friday

Andrus went 2-for-4 with a game-winning RBI single and a double in a victory over the Royals on Friday. Andrus' ninth-inning single narrowly plated Matt Chapman to snap a 3-3 tie, allowing the veteran shortstop to atone for a pair of earlier gaffes on defense that led to a Royals run in the eighth inning. Andrus' .213/.266/.274 season slash line naturally has plenty of room for improvement, but he's been markedly better thus far in June with a .276 average (8-for-29), four doubles, two RBI, five walks, a stolen base and four runs across nine games.

A’s Elvis Andrus unconcerned about power numbers as his bat heats up

OAKLAND — Going back to his days as a youth in Venezuela idolizing Yankees great Derek Jeter, Elvis Andrus hasn’t fallen prey to kneeling at the altar of the home run.
