The 14th was the charm: the Yankees’ streak ended at the hands of Dominican Frankie Montas and the Athletics

Oakland Athletics end 13-game winning streak in the ...

LThe Yankees’ winning streak was 13. New York lost 3-2 to the Oakland Athletics, hand in hand with a Dominican pitching jewel Frankie Montas, who kept them at zero for seven innings to end his hot streak.

The Yankees had not lost since the game of Field of Dreams, when Tim Anderson left them on the spot.

Oakland bounced back from Friday night’s loss by hitting early. They did a two-run rally in the second inning, starting it all off with a Pinder double with two outs., a passport to Murphy. Kemp produced the first with a rolled that split the diamond and failed to cut LeMahieu. The second came thanks to a balk.

Chapman made it 3-0 in the bottom of the fourth with a solo homer to Nelson Cort├ęs Jr.’s streamer, who took the loss.

Montas took care of the rest. He only allowed two hits and one walk in his seven innings of work. He left the game and Chafin hung up the eighth zero, before Mexico’s Sergio Romo will complicate matters by allowing Aaron Judge a two-run homer. There were two outs left, he got them to get a vital triumph for the A’s, who are three games away from the Red Sox for the second wild-card spot and 5.5 from the Yankees, who have the last wildcard.
