The Oakland Athletics put an end to their five-game losing streak with a convincing 11-2 victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday. The A's had struggled in recent games, but they found their form against the Pirates, who were on a six-game winning streak before the game.

The Pirates' ace, Mitch Keller, had a poor outing, giving up five runs on eight hits and four walks in just over five innings of work. Keller had been in great form earlier in the season, but he has struggled in his last three starts.

A's End Losing Streak in Style

In contrast, the A's right-hander, James Kaprielian, had a solid game, allowing only one earned run on four hits in six innings. Kaprielian had come into the game with an 8.12 ERA, but he was able to keep the Pirates' batters in check.

Jace Peterson was the star of the show for the A's, hitting two home runs and driving in five runs. Peterson had a difficult start to the game, making an error that allowed the Pirates to take the lead in the first inning. However, he bounced back with a fantastic performance at the plate.

The win was a much-needed boost for the A's, who have struggled for form this season. They will be hoping to build on this victory and put together a winning streak.
