Marcus Semien is playing with a lot more discomfort than he lets on, other A’s players and coaches believe. Yet five months after right wrist surgery to repair a fractured scaphoid bone, Oakland’s shortstop has improved offensively. Since the All-Star break, Semien, a career .247 hitter, is batting .270 and his two-run homer Wednesday helped Oakland sweep the Tigers. “There are some pitches that still aggravate him,” manager Bob Melvin said. “Some of the wrist pain he has, some soreness probably doesn’t go away until after the season with significant rest. “Marcus is a guy with a significant pain threshold and he wants to play.

The Oakland right-hander pitched seven scoreless innings, and Marcus Semien homered and drove in three runs, leading the A’s to a 3-2 win and three-game sweep of the Tigers on Wednesday.

DETROIT — The A’s weren’t trying to pull a fast one on the Tigers. The effect, though, was much the same. After the Tigers spent the day expecting to face Oakland’s Jharel Cotton, he was scratched a few minutes before Monday night’s game with a strained groin. His replacement, Raul Alcantara, held Detroit scoreless for 32/3 innings to set up an 8-3 victory. “I just felt a pull in my groin, and when I tried to keep warming up, it kept grabbing at me,” Cotton said. “It was just a freak accident when I was ready to pitch.” Alcantara came into the game with a 12.27 ERA in five appearances this season, all in relief. He made five starts as a rookie last year.

The Oakland A’s got a thumbs down Monday from the Golden Gate Audubon Society, which claimed the proposal to build a ballpark on land owned by the Peralta Community College District is a bad deal for birds. The influential advocacy group, which has more than 7,000 members in Oakland and nearby cities, said the proposed ballpark in the Eastlake neighborhood would be disastrous for nearly 200 species of ducks, herons, songbirds, nesting cormorants and fish that make their homes in Lake Merritt, the nation’s oldest wildlife refuge. “We’re not antibaseball. We love the A’s, but we want them to stay where they are,” said Cindy Margulis, the executive director of Golden Gate Audubon.
