OAKLAND, CA - Brandon Moss finished a triple shy of the cycle and the Oakland Athletics completed a three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox with a 3-2 win on Wednesday.

Jemile Weeks singled home the go-ahead run in the seventh inning after Coco Crisp led off with a triple.

The A's won their fourth straight game and spoiled an historic day for Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who hit his 400th career home run.

Moss was 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored while reliever Grant Balfour (2-2) worked 1 2/3 perfect innings for the win. A.J. Griffin got his third straight no-decision in three MLB starts after striking out three and giving up two runs -- one earned -- in six innings.

Aaron Cook (2-2) was charged with three runs on nine hits in six-plus innings to take the loss, snapping a two-start winning streak since he came off the disabled list.
