(Newser) – Travis Buck doubled home two runs in the 12th inning and the Oakland Athletics completed a three-game sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays with a 3-2 win Thursday night. Buck went 3-for-6 with three RBIs, matching an Oakland record with three doubles. The Athletics have won four of six overall, and seven straight in Toronto in a streak that began during the 2007 season.

The winner was right-hander Joey Devine (1-0), who worked two innings after being recalled from Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the day when Rich Harden landed on the 15-day disabled list. Keith Foulke gave up an RBI single to Vernon Wells in the bottom of the 12th, but still picked up his first save of the season.
