Moments earlier, Broxton (0-1) plunked new A's cleanup hitter
Yoenis Cespedes on the first pitch to load the bases and the closer
received a mound visit from pitching coach Dave Eiland.
It marked the third time the A's won on a game-ending hit by
pitch in Oakland history and first since Olmedo Saenz on July 20,
2002, against Texas.
Coco Crisp's RBI groundout earlier in the 12th tied it at 4
after Billy Butler doubled home the go-ahead run in top half of the
12th against Andrew Carignan (1-1).
