Ben Sheets finally pitched like an ace, Daric Barton drove in a pair of runs and the Oakland Athletics beat Tampa Bay 4-2 on Saturday to hand the Rays their second road loss of the season.
     
Sheets (2-3) scattered four hits over 6 1-3 innings and had a season-high eight strikeouts in his most impressive start of the year. Sheets signed a $10 million, one-year contract in the offseason, but had allowed 17 runs in only 7 1-3 innings his previous two starts.

Jason Bartlett had an RBI double for Tampa Bay, which fell to 13-2 away from Tropicana Field. It was also the Rays first loss to the A's this season.
