MLB: Oakland 9, Toronto 5

TORONTO, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Mark McLemore's one-out sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run in a five-run ninth Saturday to help lift Oakland to a 9-5 victory over Toronto.

Damian Miller ended 2-for-2 with a two-run double and Eric Byrnes collected a three-run double for Oakland, which has won 16 of 18.
