(AP) Coco Crisp hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the ninth inning and Jarrod Parker earned his eighth straight win as the Oakland Athletics beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 Saturday.


After Parker and Chris Tillman waged a magnificent pitching duel for eight innings, Crisp connected on a 3-1 pitch from Darren O'Day (5-3). It was the third home run in three games for Crisp, who had four hits on Friday night.


Parker (10-6) gave up one run, five hits and three walks to improve to 8-0 in 16 starts since May 22. The right-hander threw 117 pitches and worked out of jams in the sixth and eighth innings.


Grant Balfour got three straight outs for his 32nd save.
