Third baseman Manny Machado made a throwing error in the 10th inning and the Oakland Athletics completed their comeback, beating the Baltimore Orioles 9-8 Sunday.

Down 5-0 in the sixth, the A's tied it at 8 on Yoenis Cespedes' two-run homer with one out in the ninth. He was activated from the disabled list before the game.

The Athletics ended a four-game losing streak and prevented Baltimore from a four-game sweep.

Eric Sogard hit a leadoff single in the 10th and moved to second when reliever Pedro Strop (0-1) made a wide throw to second on Adam Rosales' bunt. Coco Crisp followed with a sacrifice bunt and Machado threw wildly past to shortstop J.J. Hardy covering third, allowing Sogard to score.
