Khris Davis' 2-Run Homer Leads A's to Sweep of Yankees

19 June 2017

Oakland Athletics' Ryon Healy (25) hitting a solo home run against the New York Yankees during the fourth inning of a baseball game on Saturday, June 17, 2017 in Oakland, Calif. Ryan Madson allowed a two0out single in the eighth before Sean Doolittle collected his second save in three attempts in the ninth.

"You can feel the confidence that the guys are playing with right now and the energy they're playing with right now".

"It was awesome to see the way we pieced it together today and have each guy come in and feed off the guy's performance before".

Joyce reached base five times, and Jesse Hahn (3-4) pitched five innings to defeat NY for the first time in his career.

"It's not what you want", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of the losing streak.

A's right-hander Jesse Hahn (3-4) struggled with his command but improved to 2-0 in three starts since returning from the disabled list with a strained right triceps. He said A's regular catcher Stephen Vogt, who served as the designated hitter on Sunday, advised him to attack the Yankees' hitters and not to nibble because they'll just "foul you off". Holliday returned to the lineup at DH after sitting Saturday with an allergic reaction to something he ate. He has allowed 21 homers in 76 2/3 innings this season.

On Sunday, they were defeated 4-3 by the A's at the dump known as Oakland Coliseum, capping a 1-6 swing that began with a victory last Monday in Anaheim but got steadily worse from there.

A bullpen alternately described last week by Joe Girardi as exhausted, taxed and fried, was called upon one last time this trip when a starter failed to go deep. The first pitch made by Tanaka was hit over the outfield fence by Matt Joyce for a leadoff home run. Cessa regrouped to get Jed Lowrie on a grounder to the right side but gave up a two-run homer to Davis that put the A's ahead 4-2. "I think that was an important game for him to know that you don't have to have your best stuff and you don't have to start out great to be able to continue through the game and give your team a chance to win".

The A's jolted Yankees rookie right-hander Luis Cessa (0-1), making his first start of the season, in the third to take a 4-2 lead.

"Towards the end I wanted to win for the team so badly I just wanted to pitch as long as I can go", Cotton said.

"Against a team that's that good, one of the best teams in the American League, to come away with a four-game sweep is really big for us", said Doolittle, who spent time in the clubhouse to stay cool. "But at this point at some point he's throwing a few too many pitches early in games".

"I don't look at things in a snapshot", Girardi said. There's been a lot of days this season where I feel awful in the cage and I just have to go out and clear my mind and just battle, compete in the box.
