OAKLAND, Calif (AP) - Seth Brown hit a two-run double in the sixth inning, Cristian Pache made another spectacular defensive play, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 on Tuesday night. 

A day after their lowest attendance for a home opener without Covid restrictions in more than 30 years, the A’s drew a crowd of 3,748 – the smallest crowd at the Coliseum since Sept. 25, 1980. 

Elvis Andrus and Christian Bethancourt both had two hits and scored to help Oakland to its seventh win in 10 games after an 0-2 start. Anthony Santander and Trey Mancini each had two hits for the Orioles.
