Lowrie's homer in 9th lifts A's over Tigers 5-4

DETROIT (AP) Edwin Jackson figures he'll enjoy pitching for as long as teams are willing to put him on the mound.

Jackson tied a record Monday when he played for his 13th major league club, allowing a run in six innings for the Oakland Athletics in their 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Called up from Triple-A for his first big league appearance of 2018, Jackson matched the mark for most teams set by former reliever Octavio Dotel.

''It's always good to be wanted,'' Jackson said. ''When I can't find a team that wants to bring me in, then I guess it'll be time to sit it down. But until then, I like to come out. I like to compete, to have fun. I feel like I still have something in me and that I can bring value to a team.''

Jed Lowrie hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the top of the ninth. The A's trailed 4-1 after Detroit's Nicholas Castellanos hit a three-run homer in the seventh, but Oakland scored three in the eighth off Joe Jimenez to tie it. Then Lowrie connected for his 12th home run of the year, barely fair down the line in right field off a cutter from Shane Greene (2-4).

Lou Trivino (6-1) got the win in relief, and Blake Treinen pitched the ninth for his 18th save in 20 chances. The A's have won seven of nine.

Jordan Zimmermann pitched five scoreless innings for the Tigers, but that wasn't enough to prevent Detroit's sixth straight loss.

''I felt good,'' Zimmermann said. ''I threw a lot of sliders today, and they were pretty good.''

Stephen Piscotty and Jonathan Lucroy had three hits apiece for Oakland. Piscotty hit a solo homer in the seventh to tie it at 1. The A's have homered in a record 26 consecutive road games.

The 34-year-old Jackson allowed six hits and struck out seven with no walks. It was his first start since Sept. 28, when he was with Washington.

''For most guys, it's tough to go to a new team in the middle of a season. There can be some nerves and some uncomfortableness being with a new team,'' A's manager Bob Melvin said. ''This is probably the last guy that you worry about that, being that it's his 13th team. He seemed real comfortable when he came out of the bullpen, seemed really comfortable when he took the mound. That has a lot to do with experience.''

Down by three in the eighth, Oakland chipped away against Jimenez. Marcus Semien hit a sacrifice fly, and Lucroy followed with an RBI single. Then Franklin Barreto tied it with a run-scoring double.

John Hicks hit an RBI single for Detroit in the fourth to open the scoring.

Oakland center fielder Dustin Fowler made a diving catch with a runner on second to end the seventh.

JOURNEY

Jackson made his big league debut in 2003 with the Dodgers. He's also pitched for the Rays, Tigers, Diamondbacks, White Sox, Cardinals, Nationals, Cubs, Braves, Marlins, Padres and Orioles. Detroit traded him in 2009 as part of the three-team deal with Arizona and the New York Yankees that brought Max Scherzer to the Tigers.

''I've been playing against him forever, so I was pretty familiar with his stuff, just from a hitting standpoint,'' said Lucroy, Oakland's catcher. ''Look, this guy's an innings eater. He throws strikes. He fills the zone up, attacks guys. Veteran pitcher who knows exactly what he's doing out there.''

Monday marked eight years since Jackson threw a no-hitter for Arizona at Tampa Bay.

CITIZENS

Before the game, the Tigers held a ceremony for a group of people being sworn in as American citizens. Included were Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and outfielder Leonys Martin, both natives of Cuba.

''It's amazing,'' Iglesias said before the game. ''Become an American citizen on a ballpark, and with full uniform and everything. It's a blessing.''

TRAINER'S ROOM

Athletics: Oakland reinstated LHP Ryan Buchter from the disabled list. He'd been on the DL since April 26 with a strained left shoulder. The A's also purchased Jackson's contract from Triple-A Nashville, designated RHP Liam Hendriks for assignment and optioned OF Nick Martini to Nashville.

UP NEXT

Detroit sends LHP Blaine Hardy (3-1) to the mound Tuesday night against Oakland RHP Frankie Montas (4-1).
