Posted: Updated:

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Yoenis Cespedes homered, Daric Barton had a tiebreaking RBI single in the 10th inning and the Oakland Athletics held off the Cleveland Indians 7-6 on Tuesday.

Cespedes' fourth home run of the spring, a two-run shot off Zach McAllister in the fifth inning, put the A's up 5-3.

Jose Ramirez had an RBI single for Cleveland in the ninth, and scored the tying run on Travis Blackley's wild pitch.

Barton's two-out single in the top of the 10th put Oakland back ahead, and Nate Freiman scored two batters later on a bases-loaded walk increase the lead to 7-5.

Brett Anderson gave up three runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings for the A's.

McAllister gave up five runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings.

Oakland's Grant Balfour, recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Feb. 14, retired all three batters he faced.
