Yankees Fall to Athletics 7-3, Suffer 3-Game Sweep

Khris Davis and Coco Crisp homered on consecutive pitches, backing Rich Hill's sox strong innings, and the Athletics beat the Yankees 7-3 Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep.

With the score tied at 2-all to start the seventh inning, Davis greeted reliever Chasen Shreve (1-1) by sending his first pitch deep over the center-field wall. Crisp then lined the first pitch he saw into the second deck in left for the A's first back-to-back home runs of the season.

The 36-year-old Hill (2-2) kept his former club's anemic offense off-balance with a big, sweeping curve, limiting them to just two runs and three hits while striking out 10.

Oakland won its fifth straight and remainedg the only team in baseball with a perfect road record. It was the first time they swept a series in the Bronx since 2006.
