Oakland Athletics pitcher and Saugus High graduate Tommy Milone works against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday in Oakland.

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.

Saugus graduate Tommy Milone pitched six scoreless innings for Oakland and struck out six, but receive no run support.

Milone allowed four hits and walked one intentionally. The left-hander is 6-0 in his last 11 starts and hasn’t lost since May 3 at Boston.

But Friday's game was decided in the 12th when Derek Norris was walked by Chad Jenkins (0-1) to lead off the 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.
