Absolute barnburner- Yankees top Oakland in 14 innings
Sun, 23 Sep 2012 03:47:08 GMT —
NEW YORK (AP) - Raul Ibanez hit his second home run of the game during a dramatic rally in the 13th inning, then the New York Yankees won a thriller when Ichiro Suzuki scored on first baseman Brandon Moss' two-out error in the 14th to beat the Oakland Athletics 10-9 Saturday.
The AL East leaders held their one-game edge over Baltimore. Down 9-5 in the 13th, the Yankees won for just the second time in team history after trailing by at least four runs in extra innings.
Oakland began the day with a 3 1-2 game lead over Los Angeles for the second AL wild-card spot, and blew a huge opportunity.
Moss let a bases-loaded grounder by Eduardo Nunez skip off his glove, ending a game that took 5 hours, 43 minutes.
