OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Rajai Davis slapped a single to right to drive in the winning run in the ninth, and the Oakland Athletics rallied from a late three-run deficit for a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
Adam Kennedy hit a tying two-run homer in the three-run eighth for the A's, who finally solved Minnesota starter Nick Blackburn before splitting the four-game series on a soft hit by Davis.
Brad Ziegler (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings of relief for Trevor Cahill, who gave up an early three-run homer to Minnesota's Joe Crede.
Jason Giambi drew a leadoff walk in the ninth from Sean Henn (0-2), and Davis eventually drove home pinch-runner Chris Denorfia from third.
