Billy Butler hit a walk-off double in the 10th inning, helping the Athletics beat the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Butler was 0-for-3 with a walk leading up to his 10th-inning at-bat. Yimi Garcia had allowed a leadoff double to Mark Canha, and Butler followed up with one of his own to end the game. The DH had really hit the skids, batting .133 (4-for-30) in his previous nine games. Overall, Butler is batting .236/.304/.357 with nine home runs and 48 RBI in a disappointing first year in Oakland.
