SAN JOSE — Antti Niemi stopped Jeff Carter on a 2-on-1 in overtime and then was perfect in the shootout to help the San Jose Sharks move into a tie for fourth place in the Western Conference with a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

Raffi Torres scored the only goal of the shootout and Brent Burns scored one goal and assisted on another by TJ Galiardi on a productive second-period shift for the Sharks, who followed Monday night’s win in Phoenix with a home victory against the Kings.

Niemi made 41 saves, including the key pad stop on Carter in overtime.

Sacramento River Cats

Sacramento pitcher Dan Straily was dominant again on Tuesday at Cashman Field, striking out seven and allowing just one run in seven innings to lift the River Cats to their sixth-straight win, a 2-1 triumph over the Las Vegas 51s.

Straily (2-0) scattered four hits and walked just one batter, improving to 2-0 in his second Triple-A start of the season. Travis Banwart and Pedro Figueroa had scoreless outings in relief for the Cats, setting up Dan Otero for his second save of the season.

Sacramento’s Grant Green paced the offense with four hits and scored the go-ahead run on a Michael Choice single in the seventh inning. Choice’s RBI was his team-leading 16th of the season, while Stephen Vogt continued his hot hitting with two hits to put his batting average at .543 for the season.

Oakland A’s

Josh Donaldson’s eighth-inning triple drove in Josh Reddick for the winning run and Oakland Athletics overcame starter A.J. Griffin’s early struggles for a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros.

Reddick drew a two-out walk off reliever Rhiner Cruz (0-1) and took off for second just before Donaldson’s hit down the right-field line landed just fair. Houston outfielder Rick Ankiel made a diving attempt, but came up short as Reddick raced around the bases.

Eric Sogard added a career-high three hits for the A’s, who have won all five games against the Astros this season.

San Francisco Giants

Yuniesky Betancourt hit a grand slam, and Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki also homered as Milwaukee used an eight-run third inning to beat Barry Zito and San Francisco, 10-8.

Betancourt’s fifth career slam highlighted the seven-hit inning that chased Zito, who hadn’t lost since Aug. 2 against the New York Mets.

Zito (2-1) had opened the season with consecutive scoreless seven-inning outings. He lasted only 2 2/3 innings this time and his spotless ERA ballooned to 4.86. Dating to last season, the Giants had won the previous 13 regular-season games started by Zito.
