OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jerome Williams beat the Athletics for the third time this season with three different teams, and Oakland missed an opportunity to extend its lead in the AL wild-card race with a 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.

Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning against Dan Otero (8-2). Marlon Byrd added an RBI single in the eighth.

The A's remained a half-game ahead of Kansas City for the top wild-card spot. The Royals lost 3-2 at home to Detroit earlier Saturday.

Williams (4-2) allowed four hits, struck out three and walked one in seven innings.
