The A’s allowed only two hits on Saturday afternoon but five walks hurt and they lost to the Yankees, 3-2.
Jharel Cotton walked Gary Sanchez twice and both times he came around to score. Starlin Castro hit a sacrifice fly to score him in the first and Matt Holliday homered with him aboard with two out in the sixth. Holliday’s two-run job chased Cotton from the game.
Oakland now turns to Andrew Triggs in the rubber match; he’s coming off of five earned runs in a loss to Boston. Triggs has given up one run or less earned run in six of his nine starts this year and three, five and six in the other three. He has won five of the six (Oakland 6-0) and lost the three so when he’s very good, the A’s win and when he isn’t, they lose.
New York Yankees
CC Sabathia got his fifth win of the season with 19 outs on Saturday and the bullpen continued to be one of many strengths for New York.
Adam Warren, Tyler Clippard and Dellin Betances lowered their ERA’s to 2.88, 1.74 and 0.52, respectively, with shutout appearances. Betances earned his fifth save in his last five appearances, all since Aroldis Chapman went on the DL.
Michael Pineda has been some strength for the Yankees, too. He’s got a 1.04 WHIP and New York has won seven of his last eight starts. He’s not striking out as many as you might think a starter with that kind of WHIP would, nor even how many he probably could but that’s the point.
Pineda has become a complete pitcher and one of the more consistent in the league after several seasons that left you wanting more.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: the pitching is going to be really good.
It seems straight-forward enough. Both of these starters have been, and should continue to be, dynamite. New York’s bullpen is dominant, Oakland’s is ok and it isn’t like either offense is a presence that should change that.
