MILWAUKEE -- Carlos Gomez scored from first base on Yuniesky Betancourt's 10th-inning double, giving the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Oakland A's on Tuesday night at Miller Park.
Oakland reliever Pat Neshek (1-1) got Ryan Braun to ground out to open the inning but then gave up a base hit to Aramis Ramirez. Gomez hit into a fielder's choice that retired Ramirez at second before Betancourt slapped Neshek's second offering deep enough into right field to give Gomez plenty of time to score.
Milwaukee's comeback spoiled a very good start from Oakland's A.J. Griffin and two homers by A's left fielder Yoenis Cespedes.
The right-hander threw seven shutout innings while holding Milwaukee to just four hits -- two of them from Gomez -- and striking out five.
Through his first four innings, Griffin allowed just one hit -- a two-out single by Brewers starter Kyle Lohse. He worked out of a jam in the fifth, when the Brewers put two on with nobody out.
Cespedes belted a two-run homer to left-center off Kyle Lohse in the first inning. Lohse retired 13 of his next 17 batters before Cespedes opened the sixth with a solo shot, again to left-center.
Cespedes finished the day 3-for-5. The two home runs increased his team-leading total to 11 on the season.
Lohse worked through the sixth, allowing three runs on seven hits. He struck out three and didn't issue a walk.
The Brewers got their comeback started in the eighth.
Rickie Weeks and Norichika Aoki began the eighth with back-to-back singles, and both scored on Jean Segura's triple, cutting Oakland's lead to 3-2. Braun grounded out to third for the inning's first out, but Ramirez tied the game when his broken-bat fly ball to short center dropped in between three A's defenders.
Gomez, though, grounded into a double play to end the threat.
Milwaukee loaded the bases in the ninth but couldn't convert against lefty Jerry Blevins.
John Axford (2-3) worked around a one-out walk in the 10th to keep Oakland off the board.
Coco Crisp singled off Lohse to open the game, and Cespedes' home run gave Oakland a 2-0 lead in the first inning.
