For a third night in a row, the Yankees were one run short. Tonight it was Brandon Inge’s solo homer in the eighth inning that carried the Athletics to a 2-1 win in Oakland. All three games this series have been decided by one run, with the Yankees losing all three of them, and they’ll need a win tomorrow to avoid a four-game series sweep. Inge’s game winner came four innings after Yoenis Cespedes tied the game at 1 with a solo homer in the fourth inning. The two home runs were the only dark spots in an otherwise strong start by Phil Hughes, who allowed four hits through 7.2 innings. A’s starter Jarrod Parker was the third straight Oakland rookie to shutdown the Yankees. He allowed one run through eight innings.
