The Oakland Athletics and New York Yankees engaged in a spectacular pitchers' duel on Friday night. The A's managed to tie the game late, but the home run-heavy Yankees game allowed for a 2-1 win for the home team in 10 innings.
CC Sabathia no-hit the A's through the first five innings before the no-no was broken up by a Stephen Drew line drive to lead off the sixth. Meanwhile, Jarrod Parker held the Yankees to just one run on a fourth-inning sacrifice fly from Curtis Granderson.
In the top of the ninth, Brandon Moss hit a pinch-hit home run off of Rafael Soriano with one out to tie the game. It was the 19th home run of the year for Moss. Unfortunately, although the A's were able to force extra innings, Russell Martin led off the bottom of the 10th with a home run off of Sean Doolittle for the win.
The A's will try to regroup and even the series on Saturday.
