ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Orlando Cabrera hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Oakland's four-run seventh, leading the Athletics to a 7-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

Kurt Suzuki and pinch-hitter Jack Cust each singled in a run and Mark Ellis drove in Landon Powell with a groundout to set up Cabrera's hit off Chad Bradford.

Suzuki and Ryan Sweeney tacked on RBI singles in the eighth and Ellis connected in the ninth to make it 7-3.

Oakland starter Brett Anderson left after four scoreless innings. There was no immediate word on why he departed.
