Kirk captains A's to victory
Jimmy Rollins, who had three hits and two steals, led off the game with a homer, but that was it for the Phils, who hit into four double plays and had a runner thrown out at home. Cory Lidle was strong, allowing just two runs over 7 2/3 innings, but took the loss.

Kirk Saarloos allowed nine hits and four walks in 6 1/3 innings, but he held the Phillies to one run as the A's defense turned four double plays. In the fourth, Scott Hatteberg's RBI single tied it, and Dan Johnson's sacrifice fly put Oakland ahead to stay.
