Coco Crisp homered leading off the bottom of the 12th inning to lift the Oakland Athletics to a 3-2 win over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night. Crisp, who scored the tying run with two outs in the eighth inning, hit a towering home run off Seattle reliever Hector Noesi (0-1) on an 0-1 pitch.
The ball landed just above the out-of-town scoreboard in right field. It's the sixth game-ending hit of Crisp's career. Yoenis Cespedes and Sam Fuld also drove in runs for Oakland, which rallied from two runs down for its first walkoff win of the season. Drew Pomeranz (1-0), the fifth A's pitcher, worked one scoreless inning for the win. Abraham Almonte had two hits and an RBI for Seattle.
