BOSTON (AP) - Rajai Davis singled home Mark Ellis in the ninth to send the game into extra innings, then did it again in the 11th on Tuesday night and the Oakland Athletics beat the Boston Red Sox 9-8.
Boston led 7-4 when Jonathan Papelbon blew just his third save in 28 opportunites, thanks in part to two ninth-inning throwing errors by shortstop Nick Green. It was still 7-7 with two out in the 11th when Ellis doubled off Manny Delcarmen (2-2) and scored on Davis' single to right.
Davis scored on Adam Kennedy's career-high fifth hit to make it 9-7. Craig Breslow (4-4) pitched a perfect 10th for the win, and Andrew Bailey earned his 12th save despite giving one run back in the 11th.
