Kemp went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Padres while also drawing a walk.
Kemp singled in each of his first two at-bats but was left stranded on each occasion as Oakland fell behind early. He later walked and swiped a bag, marking his third steal in his last seven games. It was also Kemp's first multi-hit game since Aug. 25, and he's still batting just .194 this month with one homer, three RBI and three runs scored following Saturday's performance.... See More ...

Athletics' Tony Kemp: Logs 14th steal
Kemp went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Rangers.
Kemp has picked up a steal in each of his last two games after going 29 contests without one. In that time, he's seen his once-steady playing time drop into more of a strong-side platoon role, and he hit just .227 during his dry spell on the basepaths. For the year, Kemp is slashing .215/.310/.308 with four home runs, 14 steals, 26 RBI and 40 runs scored over 388 plate appearances. With Zack Gelof commanding a starting role at second base, most of Kemp's playing time down the stretch will likely be in left field.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Tony Kemp: Delivers in pinch-hit capacity
Kemp entered Sunday's win over the Angels as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and delivered a two-run single in his only plate appearance.
Kemp stepped into the batter's box for Carlos Perez in the seventh inning and snapped a 4-4 tie with a single to center that brought home Zack Gelof, Ryan Noda and Brent Rooker, the latter on a throwing error. Kemp ended up at third base on the play and subsequently came across to score in his own right on a Shea Langeliers double, making it quite the eventful cameo. The veteran recently went through a brief 0-for-12 skid over a five-game span, but he's now hit safely in back-to-back games and sports a .323 average and .916 OPS across his last 14 contests overall....

Athletics' Tony Kemp: On base five times Friday
Kemp went 3-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch, a walk and two runs in a win over the White Sox on Friday.
One day after belting just his fourth home run of the season, Kemp went back to playing his trademark small ball and serving as an incessant thorn in the side of White Sox pitching throughout the night. The veteran pushed his season on-base percentage to .315 with Friday's production, a middling figure that's nevertheless his best since way back on April 12. Kemp now has back-to-back multi-hit efforts for the first time since late July and has a blistering .571 average (8-for-14) and 1.595 OPS over his last seven games.... See More ... See Less

Kemp went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and an additional run in a win over the White Sox on Thursday.

Kemp got off to a quiet start in August, but he's heated up over the last six games by going 5-for-11 with two doubles, Thursday's homer, two RBI, two walks and Thursday's pair of runs....

Kemp (rib) went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.
Kemp left Wednesday's game with a rib issue but was able to return after missing a handful of games. He got the start in left field and played all nine defensive innings there before Esteury Ruiz hit for him in the bottom of the ninth. Kemp should be good to resume his usual role going forward. He's slashing .215/.304/.308 with three home runs, 22 RBI, 34 runs scored and a career-high 12 stolen bases through 91 contests.... See More ... See Less
