OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jesse Hahn pitched into the eighth inning for his third consecutive win, Josh Reddick hit a tiebreaking double in the sixth and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-1 on Saturday afternoon despite committing their majors-leading 70th error.

One day after blowing a five-run lead with ace Sonny Gray on the mound in a 12-7 loss, the A's pounded out five doubles - three in the three-run sixth.

Hahn (5-5) allowed one run and four hits in 7 2-3 innings. He struck out four and walked four while winning for the first time in six starts this season against teams from the AL West.

Rookie Billy Burns had two infield hits to raise his AL-leading mark to 21 while Stephen Vogt added three hits for Oakland, which won for only the second time in the last seven games between the two teams.
