A's get 1st hit on replay reversal in 8th, edge Red Sox 1-0

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.
