Hellickson (1-1) allowed three hits, walked one and struck out six to win for the first time in four starts this season. Joyce homered off Jarrod Parker (0-3) leading off the second inning. Joel Peralta pitched the eighth for Tampa Bay, which has won two straight over the AL West-leading A's after dropping seven of nine of a road trip that ended Thursday night.
