BALTIMORE (AP) - Pinch-hitter Stephen Vogt singled in the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning, and the Oakland Athletics got home runs from Josh Donaldson and Derek Norris in a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night.
It was the sixth win in seven games for the Athletics, who own the best record in the AL (38-23) and the best road record in the majors (21-11).
Chris Davis and Manny Machado homered for the Orioles.
Both dugouts emptied briefly in the third inning after Donaldson slapped a tag on Machado, but peace was restored without incident.
John Jaso led off the 11th with a pinch-hit double off Evan Meek (0-2). With one out, Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy botched a grounder, his fourth error in two games. Meek went to third on the play and scored when Vogt hit a liner to left.
