BOSTON (CBS SF/AP) — J.D. Drew singled home Carl Crawford from second with two outs in the 14th inning Saturday, lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 9-8 win over the Oakland Athletics after closer Jonathan Papelbon blew a four-run lead in the ninth.

Crawford had four hits and drove in three runs and Adrian Gonzalez had a solo homer and three hits for the Red Sox, who posted their 15th win in 20 games.

Conor Jackson had a tying, pinch-hit two-run single in the ninth and a key double in the 11th as Oakland grabbed the lead, but Andrew Bailey couldn’t hold it. The Athletics lost their fifth straight.

Alfredo Aceves (3-1) pitched four innings for the win.

Crawford doubled into the left-field corner against Guillermo Moscoso (2-1). After Jed Lowrie was intentionally walked, Drew lined a single to right-center to end the 5-hour, 17-minute game.
