Photos.com/Thinkstock(BOSTON) — Yoenis Cespedes hit an RBI infield single in the top of the tenth and Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless bottom half of the inning to give the Oakland Athletics a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox Sunday.
The win allowed Oakland (19-12) to avoid the sweep and remain two games ahead of Texas for first place in the AL West.
The Red Sox (15-17) had a chance to do some damage in the bottom of the tenth. Will Middlebrooks opened the inning with a base hit which ended up with him at second when A’s center fielder Coco Crisp misplayed the ball. Jackie Bradley Jr. then bunted the ball down the first base line to try and advance Middlebrooks to third, but A’s first baseman Daric Barton charged the ball and threw to third to get Middlebrooks.
“He made a terrific play,” Oakland skipper Bob Melvin said. “That’s a gutsy play. That’s a play that if the runner gets over, they can win the game with a hit. A gutsy play.”
Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray pitched six innings, allowing two runs and striking out three in the win.
