OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Brett Tomko pitched five scoreless innings to beat the New York Yankees less than a month after being released by them, winning his debut with the Oakland Athletics, 3-0 on Monday night.
Kurt Suzuki and Mark Ellis had RBI hits in a three-run fourth inning against A.J. Burnett (10-6) in the Yankees' second straight loss on this West Coast trip.
Three relievers finished the shutout, the fourth this season against the Yankees, who lead the majors in home runs and are second to the Los Angeles Angels in runs scored.
Tomko (2-2) allowed five hits and one walk, throwing 78 pitches in his first start May 26, 2008, for Kansas City. Tomko went 1-2 with a 5.23 ERA in 15 appearances before being designated for assignment on July 21.
