OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jesse Hahn pitched into the seventh inning in his return to the majors and combined with two relievers on a four-hitter as the Oakland Athletics beat the Houston Astros 2-0 on Saturday.

Hahn (1-0) was called up from Triple-A Nashville before the game and pitched as well as he did for most of 2015 before missing the final three months with a right forearm strain that also delayed his debut in spring training this year.

The right-hander faced the minimum through five innings. He gave up three hits and allowed only one runner past first base to win for the first time since July 1.

John Axford retired four batters and Ryan Madson worked the ninth for his eighth save, completing Oakland's first shutout of the season.
