Yankees rally before losing in Oakland

The Yankees lost a game, a streak and possibly their right fielder tonight in Oakland. A 3-2 loss to the Athletics snapped a streak of 43 consecutive games in which the Yankees had scored at least three runs. More significantly, the game ended without Nick Swisher, who came up hobbling after a seventh-inning groundout and was removed from the game. He was diagnosed with a mild left hip flexor strain, and there was no immediate word on how long he’ll be out. Robinson Cano momentarily tied the game with a solo home run in the top of the ninth, but the A’s won it on Brandon Moss’s walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth. Oakland starter Tommy Milone struck out 10 through seven shutout innings. Yankees starter Ivan Nova allowed nine hits but limited the damage to two runs through 6.2 innings. The Yankees didn’t get on the board until Russell Martin homered in the eighth.
