Impact: The third baseman continued his assault on American League pitchers, picking up his 13th, 14th, and 15th hits in the last nine games. Each of Donaldson's nine RBI on the season have come during his current nine-game hitting streak, and he is a big reason why the A's have jumped out to an early lead in the AL West.(RotoWire, )
