Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - A.J. Griffin tossed his first career shutout and Josh Donaldson hit a three-run homer as the Oakland Athletics blanked the Cincinnati Reds, 5-0, to complete the sweep in a brief, two-game interleague set.

Griffin, who earned his first win since May 25 and snapped a five-game winless streak, shined while striking out seven and allowing just two hits. The righty also surrendered two walks -- both coming in the first inning -- but escaped by fanning Todd Frazier and cruised the rest of the game.

Donaldson also hit a two-run homer in Tuesday's 7-3 series opening win, while Brandon Moss and Nate Freiman also drove in a run for the Athletics.

Homer Bailey (4-6) absorbed the loss, tossing six frames of six-hit, four-run ball while also striking out seven for Cincinnati, which has dropped five of six. Xavier Paul had a double and Devin Mesoraco added a single to account for the Reds' only offense.
