Oakland, CA - Coco Crisp and Stephen Vogt homered, A.J. Griffin struck out seven in seven innings, and the Oakland Athletics completed a three-game sweep of fellow playoff contender Tampa Bay with a 5-1 victory Sunday.

The A's pulled off a pair of one-run wins before Sunday's result against the Rays, who are right behind Oakland in the AL wild-card race.

After Crisp led off the bottom of the first with a home run, James Loney tied it with his own longball in the top of the second. Griffin (12-9) settled in after that to win his second straight outing following a four-start winless stretch in which he was 0-2.

AL West-leading Texas brings a one-game division lead over Oakland to town for a three-game series with the A's starting Monday.
