ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Kendall Graveman gave up three hits over six innings in his return from the minors, Sam Fuld drove in two runs and the Oakland Athletics beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Saturday.

Graveman (2-2), recalled from Triple-A Nashville to make the start, struck out six and walked two to help the A's win for just the third time in 17 games.

Oakland broke through for four runs in the sixth. Xavier Cedeno replaced Rays starter Nathan Karns (3-2) with two outs and gave up Eric Sogard's RBI single. After Mark Canha walked to load the bases, three runs scored on Fuld's single that also included two Tampa Bay errors.

Fuld was credited with two RBIs on his hit that was misplayed by center fielder Kevin Kiermaier for the first error. Catcher Rene Rivera got the second error after dropping Kiermaier's throw that allowed the third run to score.
