OAKLAND http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authen...astillo-jersey , Calif. (AP) — Luke Voit let a changeup go by for a called strike on the first pitch from Fernando Rodney in the eighth inning. When the Athletics reliever tried sneaking another changeup past him, Voit sent it soaring into the left-field stands.The big first baseman hit a tiebreaking home run, Adeiny Hechavarria also went deep and the New York Yankees beat Oakland 5-1 on Tuesday night.“He’s had a great changeup forever and I saw a good one first pitch,” Voit said. “I was taking that approach just to stay right-center if he hangs it. He left a pitch up and I have to do some damage with it.”The Yankees didn’t have a baserunner until the fifth inning and didn’t get their first hit until the sixth. But they scored late off the normally reliable A’s bullpen to even a series between the top two teams in the AL wild-card race.New York increased its lead over Oakland to 4½ games for the first wild card.Four pitchers combined on a two-hitter for the Yankees. David Robertson (8-3) retired three batters to earn the win.Brett Gardner singled twice and scored a pair of runs for New York. Aaron Hicks added two RBIs.“This is like a playoff game,” Voit said. “I think we’re going to get hot at the right time. This team is so freaking dangerous, especially when we get some of these guys back from injuries. The sky’s the limit and I’m excited.”Voit homered on an 0-1 pitch from Rodney (4-3), a towering solo shot to left field. Voit emphatically pointed to the Yankees dugout and smiled while heading toward first base as a large contingent of New York fans at the Coliseum cheered.It was Voit’s seventh home run in 12 games.“To see the Luke Voit show roll on, he’s been terrific,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “He’s got confidence deep down in his ability. He plays with a little bit of a swagger, but that’s from a place of confidence.”Hicks Chris Sale Jersey , who drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game in the seventh, added a two-out RBI single later in the eighth.Hechavarria homered in the ninth, his first with the Yankees after being acquired from Pittsburgh last week.“It definitely felt nice,” Hechavarria said through a translator. “The second pitch was a fastball and I was kind of late on that. I figured he was going to come back with that, and the next time around I was ready for it.”Stephen Piscotty hit his 22nd home run for Oakland.For the second time in four games, the A’s started a reliever. Liam Hendriks, who also started Saturday, pitched the first inning before Daniel Mengden took over in the second.Mengden kept the Yankees hitless until Gleyber Torres singled just past diving shortstop Marcus Semien. Torres was promptly picked off by Ryan Buchter.“It’s more we just didn’t do enough offensively tonight,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “No matter what we give up, even if it’s two runs Steven Wright Jersey , when you get two hits, it’s going to be a tough time winning.”Piscotty homered off Yankees starter J.A. Happ in the second, matching his season high set in 2016 with St. Louis.ALMOST GOT HIMOakland reliever Ryan Buchter appeared to hit Gardner in the head with his first pitch after relieving Mengden with two outs in the sixth. Gardner walked slowly to first base while Boone and a trainer came out of the dugout to check on him. Plate umpire Tom Hallion conferred with first base umpire Dan Bellino, and the two determined the ball hit Gardner’s bat and not his batting helmet. “I think it scared him more than anything,” Boone said.HELPING AT HOMEYankees pitcher CC Sabathia and wife Amber will host a backpack giveaway, pep rally and career panel Thursday at their old high school in Vallejo, about 30 miles north of Oakland.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: For the second consecutive day, Aaron Judge ran the bases and did defensive work in the outfield.

General managerJerry Dipoto issued a statement:Seattle Mariners MarinersJerry Dipoto on the extension for Scott Servais: NAsECZX5gUServais has become the franchise's fourth-winningest manager since taking over ahead of the 2016 season. He has gone 222-199 (.527) in two-plus seasons on the job, and while he hasn't yet been able to snap the organization's long playoff drought, he has had his team in contention.The Mariners battled for a playoff spot until the eve of the regular-season finale in 2016. They finished in third place in the American League West last year with a record of 78-84.This year, though, the 51-year-old skipper has his club in position to make the postseason for the first time since 2001.Seattle enters the second half at 58-39. While they trail the Houston Astros by five games in the AL West, the Mariners hold a three-game lead in the race for the second wild-card spot. Servais deserves some credit for the success.The Mariners have continued to pile up wins even without key players. All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano wassuspendedfor 80 games in May, while pitchers Felix Hernandez (the 2010AL Cy Young winner)and James Paxton (who threw a no-hitter in May) are both on the disabled list.Seattle still has to battle for a playoff spot, but Servais can now do so without feeling as though he's managing for his job down the stretch.
