MLB wrap: A's turn tables on Yankees, beat AL East leaders 8-2 | Sporting News

Jurickson Profar had a night to remember – both good and bad.

First, the bad. The Athletics infielder botched a double play which allowed the Yankees to get out to a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning.

Then, the good. Profar broke the second tie for a second time Friday – the first was with a 0-0 score and a home run in the second – with a two-run double in the sixth to give Oakland the edge for good. The Yankees would not score again and the A’s ended the night with an 8-2 win over the American League East leaders.

Brett Anderson was awarded the win after pitching six innings allowing two runs off six hits and striking out one.

Yankees righty Tommy Kahnle was tagged with the loss. He gave up three runs on three hits in just one inning of work.

Studs of the Night

Jose Quintana pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings and allowed just four hits while striking out three in the Cubs’ 7-1 win over the Brewers.

Todd Frazier hit two three-run home runs as the Mets beat the Phillies, 11-5.

Austin Pruitt, and three Rays relievers, combined on a five-hitter as Tampa Bay shut out Cleveland 4-0.

Duds of the Night

Matt Hall came in for relief of Tigers starting pitcher Edwin Jackson, but Hall was quickly replaced himself after surrendering four runs on three hits in 1 2/3 innings.

Tim Anderson was 0 for 5 as the White Sox went on to lose 10-7 to the Braves.


Jorge Soler has been a highlight reel of his own this season and Friday he tied the Royals’ single-season home-run record (37) in a 14-2 loss to the Orioles.

The one is going, going, gone. George Springer hits a monster three-run home run in the Astros’ 7-4 win over the Blue Jays.

What’s Next?

Mets (68-66) at Phillies (69-64), 4:05 p.m. ET (FS1) – The Phillies cannot afford to give up another game now. The National League wild-card race is heating up and they are currently 3 1/2 games back of making the cut. A win Saturday against the Mets, who won the series opener, will almost certainly better their position. Philadelphia will start Jason Vargas (6-6, 4.09 ERA) while New York goes with Steven Matz (8-8, 4.06).
