OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Melky Cabrera couldn't corral Nick Punto's double with one out in the 12th inning, sending the Oakland Athletics to a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday.

Derek Norris was walked by Chad Jenkins (0-1) leading off the 12th inning. After Jed Lowrie lined out, Punto hit a slicing double down the line in left.

Cabrera moved to his right to cut off the ball, which squirted by his glove for an error. Norris scored from first for an odd ending to a game highlighted by stellar pitching performances by starters Tommy Milone of Oakland and Marcus Stroman and both bullpens.

Dan Otero (7-1), the fifth Oakland reliever to toss a scoreless inning, earned the win.
