Recap: Oakland vs. Toronto

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Coco Crisp's sac fly in the bottom of the 15th led the Oakland Athletics to a 5-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in the second of four games.

Weeks led off with a triple into the right field corner off Aaron Loup (0-2) and Crisp quickly followed with a fly ball to center that easily scored Weeks.

It was the second 15-inning win of the week for the Atheltics, who took a 4-3 decision over Tampa on Monday. Travis Blackley (4-3) got the win on Friday for twirling three scoreless innings.

Regarded as one of the top pitching prospects in the Oakland organization, Dan Straily was called up on Thursday to make Friday's start and didn't disappoint as he gave up just one run on five hits and a walk while striking out five over six innings.

"Boy he settled in after throwing quite a few pitches in the first inning," A's manager Bob Melvin said of Straily's start.

Jonny Gomes and Chris Carter each hit a solo home run for the Athletics, who have taken the first two games of this set.

Jeff Mathis tied the game with a three-run home run in the ninth while Rajai Davis drove in the other run for the Blue Jays, who have lost a season-high six straight.

"I was in shock," Melvin said of the game-tying homer. "I was waiting for the ball to hit the wall and the next thing you know it went out."

Brett Cecil gave up four runs on nine hits with a walk and strikeout over five innings in the start for Toronto.

Oakland went on top in the second on an RBI single from Brandon Inge and Gomes added his 11th homer of the year in the third for a 2-0 lead.

A sac fly from Davis in the fourth got Toronto on the board, but Carter got it back in the bottom of the inning with his leadoff shot.

Josh Reddick's sac fly in the fifth scored Crisp and gave Oakland a three-run lead, but it was not enough.

Toronto had just one baserunner from the fifth through eighth innings, and Ryan Cook struck out the first two batters of the ninth. David Cooper, though, kept the inning alive with a single and Davis followed with a base hit. Mathis then clubbed a pitch over the left-center wall to tie the game.

The Blue Jays threatened in the 12th when Omaz Vizquel singled with one out and Colby Rasmus followed with a double to the corner in left. Vizquel was sent home on the play, but the A's executed the relay and got Vizquel at the plate.
