New York Yankees 2 — Oakland Athletics 3 (10 innings)

 

Brandon Moss walked off in tonight’s 3-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics in 10 innings.

 

Ivan Nova has a habit of surrendering the extra base hit and tonight reflected that. Of the 9 hits that Nova surrendered over 6.2 innings, 4 of them were doubles. Despite giving up 9 hits, Nova allowed just 2 runs on a sacrifice fly following a triple to lead off the 3rd inning and back-to-back doubles to lead off the 4th inning. Cody Eppley would come in in the 10th inning with 1 out already but 3 consecutive singles would bring in the game-winning run by Brandon Moss to end the game.

 

Tommy Milone shut down the Yankees bats through 7 innings as he allowed no runs on 6 hits while striking out a career-high 10. Once the bullpen came in, the Yankees were able to get to them early in the reliever’s appearance. Russell Martin welcomed the first reliever, Jerry Blevins, with a home run to deep left field to put the Yankees on the scoreboard and cut the two-run deficit in half. Robinson Cano had two hits tonight to extend his hitting streak to 23 games but his big hit was a 9th inning, game-tying home run off of All-Star closer Ryan Cook’s second pitch upon entering the game. Prior to yesterday’s game, Ryan Cook had not allowed a home run in his career. Last night, Nick Swisher went deep against Cook but Swisher would not make an impact after the exiting with a leg injury in the 7th inning. Tonight’s loss also ended the 43-game streak for the Yankees scoring 3 or more runs.

 

Win – Ryan Cook (4-2)

Loss – Cody Eppley (0-1)

Inge lifts A's over Yankees, 2-1

OAKLAND, Calif. -- When rookie starting pitcher Jarrod Parker walked off the mound after eight innings of one-run ball against the New York Yankees in line for no decision, Oakland A's third baseman Brandon Inge had a message for him. "Inge, he told me," Parker explained. "He said, 'I'm gonna get you one.' And he did. That's pretty sweet that...

Yankeetorial: We must not do something stupid due to the terrible events out West

Not long ago, CC was returning, Brett Gardner was healing, Joba was throwing well, Arod was heating up, and our only problem was securing tickets for the upcoming midnight premier of "The Dark Knight Rises." We were fat, dumb and winning. The last thing anyone pondered was having to suddenly drain our farm system for a Shane Victorino or a Justin Upton, some outfielding...

Athletics 4, Yankees 3

A.J. Griffin glanced into the visiting dugout and saw Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira among others. Oakland's rookie right-hander felt some nerves all right. Then, Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-run homer in the first inning to give him a quick lead and Griffin shut down one of baseball's best lineups for five innings as the Athletics beat the Yankees 4-3 Thursday...

Yankeetorial: Oakland has undressed the fundamental fact that we are back to waiting for Arod

Dim the mood lights. Cue the Moby soundtrack. Push the potato snug into the tailpipe, and let's get comfy. Nobody wants to hear us whinnying when nine eight seven games up. But today, all that stands between hope and a humiliating four-game sweep is Hiroki Kuroda, and we've rolled enough of his dice to not plan the victory party in advance. (Which is bad juju, BTW...

Athletics 2, Yankees 1

OAKLAND -- It wasn't a walk-off, but Brandon Inge's solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning powered the Oakland A's to their third consecutive one-run victory over the New York Yankees, a 2-1 triumph Saturday. It pushed the A's MLB-best July record to 13-2. Yankees starting pitcher Phil Hughes was pulled from the game after 7 2/3 innings. He allowed four...

I'm not worried that we've lost two in a row

Why would anyone worry about such a thing? You'd be a fool to worry. The Yankees are too far ahead to blow the lead. And we have too many great players. There's no need to worry. None at all. And I'm not worried. Not one bit. I'm not even thinking about the fact that I'm not worried. It's not worth wasting time thinking about. So I'm not. Worried, that...

A's fans enjoy seeing Oakland knock off Yankees, Swisher

OAKLAND -- Former A's outfielder and one-time fan favorite Nick Swisher might not be so beloved in Oakland anymore. After his ninth-inning home run Thursday cut the Athletics' lead to one and extended the New York Yankees' streak of games with three or more runs to 43 -- the second-longest stretch in the live-ball era -- the boos rained down from an announced crowd...

Straily could be on Athletics' radar

The Oakland Athletics are a ½-game out in the wild-card race. They lead the American League in ERA. Yet their best pitcher, in terms of sheer performance, is at Triple A. Doesn't quite make sense. So, don’t be surprised if the Athletics try to figure out a way to squeeze right-hander Daniel Straily into their rotation soon. Straily, 23, is a combined 6-6 with a 2.64...
