OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Josh Donaldson blooped an RBI single with two outs in the 11th inning and the Oakland Athletics beat Boston 3-2 Sunday despite a stellar start by Red Sox rookie Brandon Workman.

Workman took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning of his first major league start. Coco Crisp broke it up with a leadoff infield single.

Workman had pitched only once in the majors, getting roughed up over two innings in relief at Seattle. He became the third rookie in four days to pitch no-hit ball into the sixth inning of his first big league start - Houston's Jarred Cosart and Cleveland's Danny Salazar did it in their major league debuts.

Donaldson hit a tying, two-run homer off Workman in the seventh, then singled with two outs in the 11th. Matt Thornton (0-4) lost in his Boston debut.
