MLB Game Summary - Oakland at Miami



(Friday, June 27)

Final Score: Oakland 9, Miami 5

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Athletics benefited from a replay reversal during a four-run ninth inning that pushed them past the Miami Marlins, 9-5, in the opener of a three-game interleague series.

With the score tied at 5-5 in the top of the ninth, Giancarlo Stanton gobbled up Yoenis Cespedes' single to right and appeared to throw out Coco Crisp at the plate for the first out of the inning.

Replay, however, showed Crisp's right foot slid in just before Jeff Mathis' tag, and following a long review, the out call was overturned.

"It was a great slide on a guy with a cannon for an arm in the outfield," A's third baseman Josh Donaldson said.

Donaldson added his third RBI of the night with a sacrifice fly, while Stephen Vogt and Josh Reddick each drove in an insurance run with base hits.

Reddick recorded three of Oakland's 16 hits, while Luke Gregerson (2-1) stranded a runner in scoring position in the eighth to earn the win, the club's seventh in its last nine games.

The Marlins were forced to empty their bullpen when rookie starter Anthony DeSclafani exited due to a right forearm contusion after tossing three frames.

Closer Steve Cishek (4-3) was used in a tie game in the ninth and surrendered all four runs as the Marlins fell for seventh time in 10 games.

"I thought I made good pitches," Cishek said. "For some reason things just unraveled."

The A's loaded the bases in the first inning and plated two runs, the first coming on a Donaldson fielder's choice grounder and the other on Jed Lowrie's base hit to right.

Oakland filled the bags again in the fourth but only managed one run when Crisp beat out a potential inning-ending double play ball.

Donaldson's fifth-inning triple off the wall in center plated Cespedes, who kept the Marlins off the board in the third inning when he threw out Stanton at home with a pinpoint throw from left field,

Miami, though, jumped in front with five runs in the sixth.

Oakland starter Jesse Chavez was pulled after giving up four consecutive singles to start the frame, the last two from Garrett Jones and Marcell Ozuna each driving in a run.

Donovan Solano greeted Dan Otero with an RBI double into the right-field corner, and Mathis' run-scoring groundout evened things at 4-4 before Brian Flynn drove in a go-ahead run with a single to center.

The lead stood until the A's tied things in the eighth. With a runner on first and two outs, Reddick sent a sinking liner to left field. Ozuna came up short trying to make a diving catch, and Vogt raced around and scored all the way from first. Reddick was credited with a triple but was stranded at third.

Game Notes

Cespedes extended his hitting streak to 11 games and recorded his MLB-leading 10th outfield assist ... DeSclafani was charged with two runs on five hits in his fifth career start, while Chavez yielded four runs on six hits and three walks ... Miami fell to 8-2 against the AL this year ... These teams are meeting for the first time in Miami since 2003.
