Athletics 5, Yankees 4, 11 innings
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Rookie Travis Buck tripled and scored the winning run, beating New York first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz's throw to the plate on Bobby Kielty's fielder's choice.
Down 4-1 in the sixth, the Athletics clawed back with a two-run homer by Eric Chavez off Yankees starter Kei Igawa. In the seventh, Oakland tied the score on Nick Swisher's solo homer off Kyle Farnsworth.
Huston Street (2-1) pitched the 11th for the win. Brian Bruney (0-1), who hit Mark Ellis with a pitch after Buck's triple and loaded the bases with an intentional walk, was tagged with the loss.
