The Oakland A’s outlasted the Marlins in a marathon game today, winning 7-6 in 14 innings. The five hour plus game gave A’s righty Jim Johnson the win, as he threw 3 innings, allowing no runs on three hits. The A’s used eight pitchers in the game to seal the extra-inning victory. Miami tacked on a run in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game at six on back-to-back hits that ended Steve Doolittle’s streak of 26 2/3 consecutive innings. Neither team scored after that for another four innings before Josh Donaldson knocked a RBI single off of the Marlins’ sixth and final reliever in the game, Jacob Turner that put the A’s at their Major League best record of  50-30. Derek Norris, who has a sour left shoulder, was the only player left on Oakland’s bench by the end of the game, which gave even pitcher Tommy Milone his first at bat of the season. The A’s are back at it tomorrow, when they take on the Marlins for the rubber match of their three game set at 1:10 PM EST.
