OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Vogt hit a game-ending single in the 10th inning and the Oakland Athletics rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Saturday night.

After the teams were held to one total run in the first eight innings behind sharp pitching from Oakland's Scott Kazmir and Minnesota's Phil Hughes, the game opened up late.

The Twins took the lead with two runs in the top of the ninth - only to squander it when pinch-hitter Jake Smolinski tied it in the bottom half to give Glen Perkins his first blown save of the season.

The A's then won it in the 10th. Billy Burns led off with a double against Casey Fein (2-4) and stole third. Vogt followed with a clean single to left to give Oakland its second walk-off win of the season.

Drew Pomeranz (4-3) pitched the 10th for the victory.
