Michael Pineda won for the first time since his opening start this season, Starlin Castro hit a tiebreaking, two-out single in the sixth inning and the New York Yankees beat the A’s 5-4 on Sunday at the Coliseum to complete a four-game sweep, the team’s first in Oakland since 1979.
“It doesn’t feel good,” A’s manager Bob Melvin told The Associated Press. “I don’t know that we could have fought much harder at the end of this game. (We were) ahead by a run and we got our best guys rested in the bullpen. We just couldn’t finish it off.”
