OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Mark Canha hit a two-out double in the 10th inning to drive in Sam Fuld and lift the Oakland Athletics to a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

Fuld singled off Cody Allen (1-3) before Canha hammered a 3-1 pitch off the wall in left-center. Fuld raced around third base and slid into home, easily beating the relay throw from shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Canha entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning. It was the first game-ending hit of his career.

Francisco Rodriguez (2-1) pitched one inning for the win, striking out Lindor with the go-ahead run on third base in the top of the 10th.

Fuld finished with two hits while Billy Burns drove in Oakland's other run.

Lonnie Chisenhall singled and scored for Cleveland, which has lost two straight.
