A's, Griffin Blank Reds 5-0

By  | 

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A.J. Griffin pitched a two-hitter for his first win in more than a month, Josh Donaldson hit a three-run homer and the Oakland Athletics beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 on Wednesday for a sweep of their two-game series.

Griffin (6-6) struck out seven and walked two in a 108-pitch gem for his first career complete game.

The shaggy-haired right-hander had been 0-3 in five starts since winning at Houston on May 25. He didn't allow a hit until Devin Mesoraco's one-out single in the fifth.

Pinch-hitter Nate Freiman and Brandon Moss each hit RBI doubles for the A's.
