OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Adam Frazier tripled in the tying run with one out in the sixth, then scored on an infield single to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

David Friese hit a two-run homer and Gregory Polanco added two RBIs as the Pirates completed the three-game sweep in their first visit to the Oakland Coliseum since 2010.

Francisco Liriano (5-8) pitched five innings to win for the first time since May 24. The lefty had lost five straight games before beating the A's to help extend Pittsburgh's winning streak to four.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle was ejected in the bottom of the sixth for arguing balls and strikes.

Billy Butler had an RBI double and scored for Oakland. The A's have lost four straight after winning the opener on this five-game homestand.
