Colon, A's shut down Pirates 2-1

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Bartolo Colon allowed one run over seven innings and the Oakland Athletics won for the ninth time in their past 12 games, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 on Monday night.

The 40-year-old Colon (12-3) shook off a tough-luck 3-1 defeat in his previous start to win for the ninth time in his last 10 outings. He outdueled Jeff Locke, who had a personal 8-game winning streak snapped. Locke (8-2) lost for the first time since his first start of the season April 10.

Colon moved into a tie for second in the majors in victories, and has the second-most wins by a 40-year-old in A's history. He allowed seven hits and one walk with five strikeouts.

Coco Crisp made a diving catch in left-center to preserve Oakland's lead in the seventh off a hard-hit sinking liner from Andrew McCutchen with two men on and two outs.
