But left fielder Lazaro Armenteros followed up his RBI single in the 1st inning with his 4th home run of the year, a 3-run homer in the 8th to give him 4 RBIs on the night and bring his team back within a run. A walk, a single and a ground out pushed home the tying run for the A’s in the top of the 9th, but a passed ball by catcher Jesus Monserratt allowed the winning run to score in the bottom of the 9th off LHP Pat Krall who took the loss for the A’s on Tuesday.
