Crisp's blast sends A's past Mariners in extra innings

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Coco Crisp led off the bottom of the 12th inning with a game-winning home run, as the Oakland Athletics edged the Seattle Mariners, 3-2, in the opener of a four-game series Thursday at O.co Coliseum.

After fouling off the first pitch of the frame, Crisp scorched a high fastball from Hector Noesi (0-1) over the out-of-town scoreboard in right-center field.

The umpires briefly reviewed the play before ruling Crisp's blast cleared the wall to give the A's their second win of the season.

Crisp also scored on Yoenis Cespedes' game-tying triple in the eighth, while Sam Fuld knocked in Oakland's other run with a triple in the fifth.

Drew Pomeranz (1-0) picked up the win after spinning a perfect top of the 12th.

Abraham Almonte went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored for Seattle, which suffered its first setback of the season.
