The New York Yankees won a walk-off against the Oakland A's on Saturday, 10-9, ending in 14 after the Yankees loaded the bases and Brandon Moss muffed what should have been a groundout by Eduardo Nunez. Oakland had a chance to win when they went up by four in the bottom of the 13th, but the Yankees immediately answered with four runs in the bottom of the inning, sending the game to the 14th.
Neither team's starter made much of a showing. Oakland starter Travis Blackley threw 59 pitches before being pulled after two innings. He gave up four runs on four hits. Only two of the runs were earned, with the other two coming after an error by Josh Donaldson extended the bottom of the first. The A's knocked Yankee starter Ivan Nova out almost as quickly, sending him to the showers after getting three runs on five hits in 2-1/3 innings.
The game went back-and-forth from there and entered the ninth tied, 5-5. It stayed that way for four more innings, with the A's twice loading the bases only to strand all three men, and twice surviving the Yankees having a man on third with two outs. Moss was 3-for-6 on the night, and Stephen Drew went 4-for-8. Jonny Gomes, Yoenis Cespedes and Chris Carter had home runs in the 13th that gave the A's their temporary lead.
