Prodigal infielder Jed Lowrie is A’s top hitter so far
DETROIT - A month into his return stint with the A’s, Jed Lowrie is the team’s most reliable offensive performer.
Lowrie, who was Oakland’s shortstop in 2013-14, is now at second base, and he’s batting a team-high .325 with 12 RBIs.
“I would say he’s our most consistent hitter up to this point,” manager Bob Melvin said.
 a guy who really doesn’t care where he hits in the lineup -move him around and it doesn’t faze him.
Lowrie’s former team, the Astros, comes to town for a series that starts Friday.
Lowrie said he always feels that about every opponent, but well, yes, there’s more against a former team, especially one he’d signed with.
The Astros, a playoff team last year, are off to a surprisingly poor start at 7-15, but Melvin doesn’t expect that they will stay in the AL West cellar.
Khris Davis is batting .368 during a five-game hitting streak and has hit cleanup two games in a row.
After star’s injury, Murray leads No. 8 Cardinal into postseason
Red-shirt sophomore attack Kelsey Murray was already a leader of the Stanford women’s lacrosse team when star midfielder Lucy Dikeou sustained a season-ending knee injury a month ago.
Murray leads the No. 8 Cardinal with 39 goals and 22 assists going into the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament at Stanford’s Cagan Stadium.
The Women of Troy last week snapped Stanford’s 18-game winning streak in conference play in a 10-9 thriller at the L.
DETROIT - A road trip that opened with such brightness and hope after a sweep at Yankee Stadium petered out toward the end, with the team dropping five of the final six games.
Chris Bassitt, who started the final game of the trip, allowed four runs in a 40-pitch third inning in the A’s 7-3 loss to the Tigers, squashing any chance of a winning record on the trip and leading to some anxiety about his health.
The night before, Sonny Gray was more off kilter than he’d even been in his big-league career, throwing 65 pitches and exiting after two innings; he allowed four runs in a 40-pitch second inning.
Jesse Hahn, who pitched well for Oakland in the first half of 2015, has a minor blister issue at Triple-A Nashville but could be good to go soon, and Henderson Alvarez, who is coming off shoulder surgery, will be ready to join the A’s rotation in mid-May.
Oakland stranded 11 men; the team’s runs scored on a single by Josh Reddick in the third, a solo homer by Vogt in the fourth and an RBI single by Khris Davis in the ninth.
The A’s did walk nine times, which was a big improvement - they drew just seven walks, total, in the previous five games and entered the day with a major-league low 49 walks and a major-league low .287 on-base percentage.
Oakland has won only three of 10 games at home this season and returns home for series against the Astros and Angels, with top pitching prospect Sean Manaea making his major-league debut Friday against Houston’s Mike Fiers.
Big impression: 49ers’ WR Eric Rogers looks the part
Rogers, who is listed at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, is the tallest and second-heaviest of the nine wideouts on the 49ers’ roster.
 he looked even larger than his listed dimensions during the portion of minicamp practice that was open to the media today.
Rogers could be one of the more intriguing players to monitor during the offseason.
Rogers, 25, who has never played in an NFL regular-season game, led the CFL with 1,448 receiving yards, tied for the league lead in receiving touchdowns (10) and was third in receptions (87) last season with Calgary.
After the season, Rogers received 13 contract offers after visiting 16 NFL teams.
In January, on Kelly’s first day as the 49ers’ head coach, one of his first calls was to Rogers, who was influenced by Kelly’s recruiting pitch and signed with the 49ers.
Rogers was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cowboys in 2013 and was waived after training camp.
During head coach Chip Kelly’s three seasons in Philadelphia, the Eagles did not have a fullback on their roster.
Miller was a defensive end at Central Florida who was a two-time Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year.
A seventh-round pick in 2011, he’s shown excellent blocking ability and reliable hands (76 catches) as an NFL fullback.
“We look at Bruce as a football player,” Kelly said.
Celek indicated Miller’s role wouldn’t necessarily mirror that of the team’s other tight ends as of the offseason progresses.
