OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Nate Freiman singled home the winning run in the 18th inning against Mariano Rivera, lifting the Oakland Athletics to a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Thursday for a three-game sweep.

John Jaso singled off Preston Claiborne (0-1) to start the rally.

Freiman ended the 5-hour, 35-minute game on New York's getaway day to Anaheim for a weekend series with the Angels. A day game after a night game turned into a night game after a day game.

Moments before, Rivera issued just the 39th intentional walk of his 19-year career to Jed Lowrie.

Oakland became the first American League team to play two 18-inning games in one season since the A's and Washington did so in 1971.
