The Yankees streak of three-runs or more continued, but three runs wasn’t enough tonight in Oakland. Nick Swisher’s ninth-inning home run made it close, but the Yankees lost to the A’s 4-3. Freddy Garcia took his first loss since returning to the rotation. Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-run homer in the first inning, Seth Smith had a two-run single in the third and Garcia was charged with four runs through 5.2 innings. The Yankees couldn’t solve A’s rookie A.J. Griffin who made his fifth big league start, all of which have lasted exactly six innings with three runs or less. He had retired 11 in a row before the Yankees finally got on the board with a two-run sixth.
