Moss Homers in 10th to Lift A’s Over Yankees, 5-2
NEW YORK (AP) — Brandon Moss hit his second homer of the game leading off the 10th inning, and the Oakland Athletics rallied for a 5-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
Returning to the lineup after missing two games with a strained right calf, Moss drilled a full-count pitch from Adam Warren (1-3) into the second deck down the right field line for his 15th homer. That gave the AL West-leading A’s their first lead in a game that was delayed more than an hour at the start by rain.
Sean Doolittle finished off the A’s fourth straight win with a perfect 10th for his sixth save.
Dan Otero (5-1) pitched an inning for the A’s.
