MILWAUKEE – Carlos Gomez scored from first on Yuniesky Betancourt's line drive in the gap between center and right in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.
John Axford (2-3) got the win with a scoreless 10th. He retired Yoenis Cespedes, whose first career multi-home run game had given the Athletics a 3-0 lead through seven innings, and after walking Jed Lowrie he struck out Josh Donaldson and got Josh Reddick on a flyout.
Pat Neshek (1-1) took over in the bottom of the 10th and retired Ryan Braun on a grounder to third before Aramis Ramirez blooped an 0-2 pitch into short left and was replaced by pinch-runner Jeff Bianchi. Gomez reached on a fielder's choice and scored with a head-first slide on Betancourt's line drive.
