OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Eduardo Rodriguez's no-hit bid for the Boston Red Sox was broken up after a replay reversal with two outs in the eighth inning, and Khris Davis hit a game-ending double in the ninth that sent the Oakland Athletics to a 1-0 victory Sunday.

Brock Holt misplayed Davis' double in deep left field for an error that allowed Danny Valencia to score from first base.

Valencia drew a leadoff walk against Craig Kimbrel (2-4), and Oakland averted a three-game sweep.

Marcus Semien reached on an infield single in the eighth after Rodriguez stuck out his right leg to knock down a grounder. The left-hander scooped up the ball and threw to first, where Semien initially was ruled out by umpire Laz Diaz.

A's manager Bob Melvin challenged the call, which was overturned after a quick review that took approximately 19 seconds.
