OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Brandon Moss hit a two-run homer and a solo shot for his third career two-homer game, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Moss' power stroke helped Dan Straily (4-2) win his third straight decision.
Moss hit his 10th homer in the second inning and 11th with a solo drive in the eighth. He also connected twice April 29 against the Angels. Of his five hits over 40 at-bats in his last 19 games, all are home runs.
John Jaso added an RBI double and a run-scoring single in Oakland's 10th consecutive home victory. The A's (40-27) won for the 20th time in 25 games and are off to their best start since 1990.
