Recap

Oakland pitching stymied San Francisco batters for the third straight day and Jake Fox broke a scoreless tie with a seventh-inning double as the Athletics completed a sweep of the visiting Giants with a 3-0 victory on Sunday afternoon.

Adam Rosales led off the Oakland seventh with a single, was sacrificed to second, and scored on Fox’s double.

Kurt Suzuki and Ryan Sweeney had run-scoring singles in the eighth for the Athletics.

Oakland used five pitchers in shutting out San Francisco, giving up three hits. Reliever Michael Wuertz (1-0) got the win and Andrew Bailey recorded his eighth save.

This is the second straight three-hit shutout that Oakland pitched against San Francisco, as the Giants only scored one run the entire series.

Oakland starter Ben Sheets scattered two hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out eight.

Giants lefthander Jonathan Sanchez (2-4) was on the wrong end of a shutout for the third time this season. Sanchez was removed after walking the leadoff hitter in the eighth. He gave up two runs and three hits.
