CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Jonny Gomes homered to tie the game, and Brandon Inge hit a go-ahead single as the Oakland Athletics scored twice in the eighth inning and beat the Chicago White Sox 9-7 on Saturday night.

Oakland had a five-run third and led 5-2, but the White Sox rallied and took a 7-6 lead in the seventh on A.J. Pierzynski's RBI single off Ryan Cook (5-2).

After Gomes homered off Matt Thornton (4-8), Yoenis Cespedes and Chris Carter singled before Inge greeted Brett Myers with the go-ahead single into the right field corner. Gomes added an RBI single in the ninth to put the A's up two.

Grant Balfour pitched the ninth for his eighth save in 10 chances, his first since May 5.

Tyler Flowers homered and had three RBIs and a career-high three hits for the White Sox. Kevin Youkilis also homered for Chicago.
