OAKLAND, Calif. – Trevor Cahill became Oakland’s first 16-game winner in four years, Kurt Suzuki hit a two-run double and the Athletics beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Friday night.

Daric Barton added a two-run single in the second as the A’s knocked Clay Buchholz (15-7) out after only an inning-plus, his second-shortest outing as a starter and shortest in a noninjury situation.

Cahill (16-6), who began the year in the minors, became the first A’s pitcher to reach 16 wins since Joe Blanton and Barry Zito in 2006. The only other pitcher in Oakland history to win more games without getting a victory in April was Vida Blue, who posted 17 wins in 1974.
