OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jason Hammel pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning to snap a four-start losing streak since being traded to Oakland, leading the Athletics past the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Hammel (1-4) allowed seven hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings. He entered the game with a 9.53 ERA since the A's acquired him and Jeff Samardzija from the Chicago Cubs on July 4.

Coco Crisp singled home a run in the fifth and Nate Freiman hit an RBI double during a two-run sixth to spoil Drew Smyly's debut with Tampa Bay. Smyly (6-10) gave up all three runs, seven hits and two walks, including one intentional, in 5 1-3 innings.

The left-hander was traded from Detroit last week in the three-team deal that sent ace David Price to the Tigers.
