A’s Edge Rays In 15th Inning

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jemile Weeks hit a sacrifice fly in the 15th inning and the Oakland Athletics outlasted the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 Monday night.

Weeks was 0 for 7 when he came up against the Rays’ five-man infield. He lofted a fly ball and Brandon Inge easily beat the throw home from center fielder B.J. Upton.

Brandon Hicks homered for the A’s, who have a major league-leading 12th walkoff wins this season.

Matt Joyce hit his 12th home run of the season for Tampa Bay.
