OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Coco Crisp hit a game-ending sacrifice fly to go with his leadoff homer in the first, and the Oakland Athletics rallied to beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Tuesday night.
The A's got singles from Chris Carter and Cliff Pennington before pinch-hitter Brandon Moss' tying single against Alfredo Aceves (0-6). Then Crisp delivered his third career walkoff RBI and Oakland's first game-ending sacrifice fly since Dan Johnson had one May 15, 2007, against Kansas City.
Jerry Blevins (2-0) worked 1 2-3 innings for the victory. The Red Sox squandered a scoring chance in the top of the ninth with two base running blunders, including Ryan Kalish's caught stealing trying for third.
Jon Lester pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning but had nothing to show for it.
