Athletics 5, Dodgers 4

Rajai Davis and Jack Cust homered in the third inning, helping to give the A's and Trevor Cahill a big enough cushion to overcome three errors -- including a dropped popup -- that led to three unearned runs. Cahill allowed two runs -- both unearned -- over 5 1/3 innings to pick up his fourth victory.
