OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Coco Crisp drove in Kyle Blanks with a two-out single in the eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Friday night.

Josh Donaldson hit a three-run home run, his first in two weeks, to help the A's extend their winning streak to four games. Oakland also owns the best record in the majors.

Boston reliever Andrew Miller (2-5) hit Blanks and Alberto Callaspo with back-to-back pitches with one out in the eighth. After Nick Punto struck out looking, Crisp lined a 2-2 pitch to right and Blanks easily scored ahead of the throw from Brock Holt.

Sean Doolittle pitched the ninth for his 10th save. The A's closer also extended his scoreless streak to 23 1/3 innings, the longest active mark in the AL.
