A’s hold Yankees to 1 hit, win 3-2 in 11 on LeMahieu error


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Shea Langeliers scored the game-winning run on a throwing error by second baseman DJ LeMahieu in the 11th inning, and the Oakland Athletics held the New York Yankees to one hit in a 3-2 victory Saturday night.

With runners on first and second and one out, Chad Pinder hit an apparent double-play grounder to shortstop off Lou Trivino (2-8).

The Yankees got the force at second base but LeMahieu’s throw to first was off target, allowing Langeliers to score the run that snapped New York’s five-game winning streak.

Joel Payamps (3-3) pitched a scoreless 11th for the win as the Yankees managed just one hit — their fewest in an extra-inning game since at least 1906, according to Sportradar.

After neither team scored in the first nine innings, there was plenty of action in extras.

The Yankees got on the board in the top of the 10th, with Andrew Benintendi and Josh Donaldson scoring the first runs of the game on a wild pitch by A.J. Puk followed by a throwing error by catcher Sean Murphy.

Stephen Vogt answered with a two-run homer off Ron Marinaccio with one out in the bottom half to tie the game.

Neither team managed a hit through five innings — the third time that’s happened in a game over the past three seasons.

Adam Oller faced the minimum 24 batters in eight innings for Oakland, allowing one hit and one walk. He had one batter reach on an error in an 88-pitch outing. Oller erased two runners on caught stealings he initiated and the other was retired on a double-play grounder in the best outing of his young career.

Domingo Germán was just as sharp for the Yankees, allowing three hits and no walks in 7 2/3 scoreless innings.


The game was delayed briefly in the top of the ninth when a fan got out on the field. He was brought down by security near the right-field line and taken out.


There were several highlight-reel plays on defense both ways.

LeMahieu making a slick, backhand stop to rob Murphy to end the first inning.

Pinder making a leaping catch into the right-field wall to take an extra-base hit away from Oswaldo Cabrera in the third.

Germán got help from his outfield, with Aaron Judge making a leaping grab into the center-field wall to rob Cal Stevenson leading off the sixth and Benintendi making a sliding catch in left to take a hit away from Vimael Machin in the seventh.
