A’s Bats Come Alive in Win

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Derek Norris and Coco Crisp hit early three-run homers to back a strong start by Jesse Chavez, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees 10-5 on Sunday.

Carlos Beltran hit his first home run for the Yankees since coming off the disabled list. But the All-Star veteran also was called out on a strange play in the eighth inning when he seemed to lose track of the outs and wandered away from first base.

Norris homered in the first and Crisp connected in the second off Vidal Nuno (1-3).

The A’s had been held to one run or fewer in four of their previous nine games before taking a 10-0 lead in four innings.

Yoenis Cespedes drove in two runs and Josh Donaldson snapped an 0-for-33 slump with an RBI single.

Chavez (6-4) carried a shutout into the sixth.
