OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Fan favorite Kurt Suzuki greeted his old fans with a three-run homer in his first game back at the Coliseum with Oakland since being traded away last August, Jed Lowrie hit a go-ahead double in the eighth, and the Athletics beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Friday night.

Lowrie extended his hitting streak to 12 games with his Oakland-record 13th double in August, off Joel Peralta. James Loney had tied it with a double in the top half for Tampa Bay.

Jarrod Parker dueled with David Price to run his unbeaten streak to 17 straight starts, matching Catfish Hunter's Oakland record set from June 2-Sept. 3, 1973. The A's pulled within two games of the first-place Texas Rangers in the AL West, and moved ahead of Tampa Bay in the wild card.

Price (8-6) lost for the first time in nine starts since July 12 against Houston.
