Barton remains an on-base machine

Athletics 1B Daric Barton went 0 for 3 against the Angels on Monday, but he did walk twice, giving him 41 walks on the season. His .397 on-base percentage coming into the game ranked sixth-highest in the AL. "He's just kind of maturing into the major leagues," manager Bob Geren told "He wasn't that type of player his whole career in the minor leagues, but we expected that type of performance from him. He's matching the expectations we had of him."
