A's Score Four in 9th, Beat Twins

By  | 

MIAMI (AP) - Coco Crisp scored the go-ahead run in the ninth inning on a replay reversal, and the Oakland Athletics bounced back after blowing a four-run lead to beat the Miami Marlins 9-5 on Friday night.

Josh Reddick's two-out RBI triple tied the game in the eighth, and Oakland scored four times in the ninth off Marlins closer Steve Cishek (4-3).

Crisp singled to start the ninth and took second on Alberto Callaspo's single. When Yoenis Cespedes followed with a single, right fielder Giancarlo Stanton made a strong throw home, and Crisp was ruled out at the plate.

After a review that took 3½ minutes, the called was overturned, giving the A's a 6-5 lead. Josh Donaldson hit a sacrifice fly for his third RBI, and Stephen Vogt and Reddick followed with run-scoring singles.

Reddick had three of the Athletics' 16 hits.
