OAKLAND, Calif. - Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning for his first career game-ending shot, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 on Thursday for a three-game sweep.

Cespedes connected with no outs off Josh Lindblom (2-1), sending a drive just inside the left-field foul pole for his seventh homer. Oakland won for the eighth time in nine games.

Coco Crisp drew a leadoff walk from Lindblom and advanced on a wild pitch. He moved to third on Jemile Weeks' infield single on which Lindblom fielded the ball and looked to third and then first but didn't make a throw.
