Oakland outfielder Coco Crisp went 4 for 4 with two homeruns, including a three-run shot in the 10th inning that led the Athletics to a 6-4 victory Wednesday night against the Yankees.

The loss dropped the Yankees a game behind Boston in the AL East when the Red Sox finished a 13-2 rout of Texas. New York has a 7½-game lead in the wild-card race.

Nick Swisher homered twice and Mark Teixeira also connected for the Yankees, who played without Alex Rodriguez (sprained left thumb) for the second straight game. New York had dropped only two of its previous 20 series since June 10.

Yankee captain Derek Jeter picked up two more hits, giving him 3,055 for his career, tying him for 21st all-time with Rickey Henderson.

Oakland goes for a three-game sweep Thursday afternoon with Rich Harden on the mound against Phil Hughes. You can catch all your Yankee action on 104.5 “The Team” ESPN Radio!
