Bartolo Colon pitched six shut-out innings and Derek Norris led the offense with four RBIs as the Oakland Athletics defeated the New York Yankees 6-4 in the series opener.
It looked like the Yankees were going to get on the board first after Brett Gardner singled to lead off the game, and Robinson Cano followed it up with a walk. After Mark Teixeira flied out to center field and advanced both runners, Travis Hafner walked to load the bases. But Colon got Kevin Youkilis to pop out in foul ground and Lyle Overbay to fly out to left field, ending the threat.
The A’s didn’t waste any time getting themselves on the scoreboard, as Coco Crisp hit his third lead-off homerun of the season. They didn’t waste much time extending their lead, either. Nate Freiman led off the bottom of the second with a single, followed by a Josh Reddick fielder’s choice. Norris then collected his first RBI of the night on a bloop double to right field, scoring Reddick all the way from first.
Norris was just gett...

In April I decided, for various reasons, that this year should be Joba Chamberlain's last in pinstripes. Chamberlain's performance in Oakland last night only reinforced this belief. Until now, I have not addressed the obvious fact that Phil Hughes should tag along when Chamberlain leaves the Yankees. After last night, however, it is obvious that the two should hop a plane...

I’m a die-hard New York Yankees fan. I live and breathe by defending people like Alex Rodriguez (until recently), watching Yankees’ classics and debating whether Yankees players like Don Mattingly (no) and Mike Mussina (yes) belong in the Hall of Fame. So when Andy Pettitte walked off the mound having dominated the Seattle Mariners and officially winning his 250th career game...

Nine walks was just part of the poor pitching in tonight’s 5-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics.
Phil Hughes started tonight’s game and in the second inning, the home run would haunt Hughes once again. With one on, Brandon Moss would hit...
