OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Coco Crisp singled in Alberto Callaspo with one out in the 10th inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Boston Red Sox 2-1 on Saturday to extend their winning streak to five games.
Callaspo drew a leadoff walk against reliever Edward Mujica (2-3) and was sacrificed to second. Red Sox closer Koji Uehara replaced Mujica before Crisp lined his first pitch into right field. Boston right fielder Brock Holt made a strong throw but Callaspo slid home with the game-winner.
It's the second game-ending hit for Crisp this season and seventh of his career.
The A's have won the first three games of this four-game series by a total of four runs.
Boston was shut out for the first seven innings before Dustin Pedroia scored on a wild pitch in the eighth.
