Coco Crisp went 4 for 4 with two runs as the A’s edged the Yanks, 6-4 in ten innings. CC Sabathia gave way to a game tying single in the eighth before Rafael Soriano gave up a three-run bomb in the tenth to effectively end the game. Nick Swisher homered twice and Teix added a message of his own, but it wasn’t enough as the A’s have won this series against the Yanks.

Outside of Crisp’s RBI single in the eighth, Sabathia was effective tonight. He struck out seven over seven innings and walked one. It’s tough to see the Big Man blow a two-run lead in the eighth, but that’s baseball, Suzyn. 

The Yankees will try to avoid the three-game home sweep tomorrow afternoon. Daytime special, folks!

Thursday, 1:05PM: Rich Harden (3-0, 3.91 ERA) vs. Phil Hughes (4-4, 5.74 ERA)
