A's beat Marlins 7-6 in 14 innings

MIAMI (AP) - Josh Donaldson's two-out RBI single scored the go-ahead run from second base in the 14th inning, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Miami Marlins 7-6 Saturday.

For the second game in a row, the Athletics won despite squandering a 4-0 lead. They also overcame a blown save by Sean Doolittle, whose streak of 26 2-3 innings ended when Miami scored the tying run in the ninth.

Jeff Francis came on with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 14th to earn his first career save.

AL West leader Oakland has won three in a row and is 6-1 in interleague play.

Brandon Moss doubled with two out in the 14th inning against Jacob Turner (2-6). Donaldson singled on the next pitch to drive Moss in for his team-high 60th RBI this season.

Jim Johnson (4-2) pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings.
