Kila Ka'aihue blooped a winning single in the 14th inning soon after Yoenis Cespedes' tying two-run homer, and the Oakland Athletics rallied past the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Wednesday.

Cespedes delivered his fifth homer of the season against Hector Santiago (0-1) after Chicago took the lead in the top half. Then Ka'aihue came through in a game that lasted 3 hours, 56 minutes.

Jim Miller (1-0) struck out Brent Lillibridge for his first major league win after being called up earlier in the day.

Alexei Ramirez hit a go-ahead two-run double with two outs in the top of the 14th.

Paul Konerko hit his 400th career home run to tie the game at 2 in the Chicago ninth.
