OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - David Phelps pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and two relievers were perfect the rest of the way, leading the New York Yankees past the Oakland Athletics 7-0 on Friday night for their fourth straight victory.
Phelps (2-4) didn't allow a hit until Derek Norris' soft single over the head of third baseman Kelly Johnson with one out in the fifth. Phelps struck out four and walked three in 6 2-3 innings.
Dellin Betances recorded four straight outs, and Jose Ramirez pitched a perfect ninth for New York.
Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark Teixeira and Brett Gardner each drove in a run as the Yankees built a 3-0 lead against Sonny Gray (6-3) in the first two innings. New York scored four more in the eighth off Jeff Francis.
