Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a homer and drove in three runs to lead the Oakland Athletics to a 7-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in spring training action.
Lowrie hit a two-run shot that scored Coco Crisp in the third inning, then brought Daric Barton home with a double in the fifth. Seth Smith and Michael Choice drove in a run apiece for the Athletics.
However, Athletics starting pitcher Brett Anderson lasted just eight pitches before leaving the game with a strained neck. He allowed two runs -- one earned -- and didn't record an out.
