OAKLAND, Calif., June 17 (UPI) -- Clayton Richard shut down the Athletics on five hits over 7 2/3 shutout innings Sunday, allowing San Diego to edge Oakland 2-1 in an interleague game.

Richard (4-7) turned in his second straight strong start after handling the Seattle Mariners on one run over seven innings Tuesday.

The left-hander walked two and struck out six while locating 79 of his 115 pitches for strikes as the Padres salvaged one win in their three-game series in Oakland.

Huston Street delivered a four-out save, his eighth of the year, and Will Venable got the only RBI for San Diego.

Oakland's Bartolo Colon (6-7) allowed one run on one hit before exiting after two innings with a strained oblique muscle.

Coco Crisp had two hits, including an RBI single, for the A's.
