A's rally late, beat Orioles in 10th on error
OAKLAND 9, BALTIMORE 8 (10 INNINGS)

By MICHAEL WAGAMAN
Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- His face full of dirt and his body atop
the third base bag, Eric Sogard was more concerned with being
safe than watching the throw from Baltimore's Manny Machado sail
into left field.



For a few moments, it even looked as if Sogard would stay put on
the ground.



Sogard eventually got to his feet and scrambled home, making a
headfirst dive with the winning run in the 10th inning that
lifted the Oakland Athletics over the Orioles 9-8 Sunday.



"I was trying to read the crowd whether I was safe or out," said
Sogard, who singled leading off the inning. "Everyone was
screaming at me to go and I didn't know what was going on. I was
just trying to figure out what the play was, where the ball
ended up (and) whether I was just safe."



Down 5-0 in the sixth, the A's tied it at 8 on Yoenis Cespedes'
two-run homer with one out in the ninth. He was activated from
the disabled list before the game after being out with a
strained muscle in his left hand.



The Athletics ended a four-game losing streak and prevented
Baltimore from a four-game sweep.



Sogard hit a leadoff single in the 10th and moved to second when
reliever Pedro Strop (0-1) made a wide throw to second on Adam
Rosales' bunt. Coco Crisp followed with a sacrifice bunt and
Machado threw wildly past to shortstop J.J. Hardy covering
third.



"I'm proud that they went for it. I would have too," Orioles
manager Buck Showalter said of his defense. "You have to take a
pop at it or they have too many things set up."



Cespedes also singled and scored during Oakland's four-run sixth
inning. The A's are 9-2 with the Cuban slugger in their lineup
this season and 5-10 without him.



"He's very impactful, obviously," A's manager Bob Melvin said.
"That home run was kind of what he's all about. We need him in
the lineup and he showed today why."



Seth Smith also homered for Oakland. Coco Crisp had two hits and
scored twice and Josh Donaldson drove in two runs.



Chris Davis hit his team-leading ninth home run, a solo shot in
the eighth that put Baltimore ahead 7-6. Machado added an RBI
double in the ninth.



Nate McLouth, who scored four times, and Machado each had four
hits for the Orioles.



Baltimore was trying for its first four-game sweep at the
Coliseum since 1987. The Orioles lost for just the fourth time
in 13 games.



Orioles closer Jim Johnson had pitched four times in the
previous five games and was unavailable. Strop had also
struggled in recent outings, which is why Showalter stayed with
the left-handed Brian Matusz against Cespedes in the ninth.



Jerry Blevins (1-0) pitched one inning for the win.



Davis had a two-run double off Oakland starter Bartolo Colon in
the fourth and later homered off Sean Doolittle.



The A's scored four runs in the sixth. Smith hit a tying two-run
homer in the seventh.



Baltimore starter Miguel Gonzalez, who allowed only two
baserunners through the first five innings, gave up four in the
sixth.



NOTES: Colon has walked just one batter in 32 innings this
season. ... The A's scratched LHP Brett Anderson from his
scheduled start Monday due to lingering soreness in his right
ankle. RHP Dan Straily (1-0) will replace Anderson and start
against the Angels. ... Baltimore placed backup catcher Taylor
Teagarden on the 15-day DL with a dislocated left thumb. ... To
make room for Cespedes, OF Casper Wells was designated for
assignment. ... LHP Zach Britton will make his first start this
year when the Orioles begin a three-game series in Seattle.
Britton, who was recalled from the minors on Thursday, is 16-14
in two seasons with Baltimore.
