Yanks Fall to A’s 5-4

The pitching faltered for the Yanks on Sunday and they lost to the A’s 5-4.

Unable to rebound off of his worst outing of the year, Andy Pettite faltered early and gave up four runs over only five innings – putting his Yankees in an early 4-1 hole. The Bombers did rally in the sixth – pulling even by way of Overbay single after Ichiro’s two-run double had gotten them within one – but the bullpen couldn’t hold on, and a Josh Donaldson home run put the A’s ahead 5-4.  A ninth inning rally came up short for the Yanks and, in the end, they fell by that score.

Eduardo Nunez left the game with a rib cage injury and is listed as day-to-day.  Preston Claiborne made his major league debut for the Yanks, working two scoreless innings in relief of Andy Pettitte.

After a day off, the Yankees will head west to take on the Rockies on Tuesday night. Be sure to listen to the game with us on 104.5 The Team!
