MLB Scores: Oakland Athletics 9, Miami Marlins 5

Mike Ehrmann

The Miami Marlins fell to the Oakland Athletics 9-5 on Friday night. A five run sixth inning gave the Marlins a lead before Steve Cishek had difficulty in the ninth.

A four run ninth inning in a tie game against Marlins closer Steve Cishek led the Oakland Athletics to a 9-5 victory over the Miami Marlins in the first game of a three game series on Friday night at Marlins Park.

A replay review revealed Coco Crisp scored on a Yoenis Cespedes single to right field, and Josh Donaldson, Stephen Vogt, and Josh Reddick all added RBIs before Cishek was lifted for Jacob Turner.

Oakland got on the board in the top of the first against Marlins starter Anthony DeSclafani. Josh Donaldson drove in a run with a ground ball to shortstop, and a Jed Lowrie RBI single gave the Athletics a 2-0 edge.

DeSclafani appeared to bounce back but exited after three innings with a bruised forearm. In his three innings of work, the former Florida Gator yielded just the two runs while striking out a pair and not walking a batter.

Brian Flynn, called up from Triple-A to give the Marlins relief help earlier on Friday, relieved DeSclafani and gave up an RBI groundout to Coco Crisp in the fourth and Donaldson triple in the fifth to give the A's a four run advantage.

Jesse Chavez had been solid for the A's until the sixth, when the Marlins scored five times to take their first lead of the night.

Garrett Jones and Marcell Ozuna added RBI hits before a Jeff Mathis RBI groundout against Athletics reliever Dan Otero tied the game.  Jeff Baker's single to center field gave the Marlins a 5-4 lead, but Stephen Vogt scored with two outs in the eighth against Kevin Gregg after Ozuna had difficulty fielding a Josh Reddick sinking line drive to left field, tying the game at five.

Bryan Morris tossed a scoreless inning in relief for the Marlins, and Sean Doolittle retired the Marlins in order in the ninth.
