One hit is all Oakland needs

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — This is how well things are going for the Oakland Athletics: They had only one hit — and won.

“Sometimes that’s all you need,” said manager Bob Melvin after the A’s won for the 11th time in 12 games, beating the Tampa Bay Rays, 3-2, Wednesday night.

Brandon Moss hit a solo homer for Oakland’s only hit and the Athletics took advantage of walks and two errors to win their fifth straight.

“It’s not the easiest way to win a baseball game,” said Moss, who hit his 10th homer. “But it’s better than getting one hit and losing.”

Oakland scored twice on two errors and a pair of walks in the second inning, helping the A’s win a regular-season game for the first time since at least 1914 while getting only one hit, according to the team.

Moss’ 11th extra-base hit in seven games came off Erik Bedard in the fourth inning. Oakland’s fifth straight victory, coupled with Detroit’s loss earlier Wednesday, gave the A’s the best record in the major leagues at 30-16.

Tommy Milone (2-3) gave up two runs in 5 2/3 innings for the A’s.
