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 within one hit in a 3-2 victory Saturday night. .

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

The Yankees took the force to second base, but LeMahieu’s throw to first was misplaced, allowing Langeliers to score the run that snapped New York’s five-game hitting 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 through the first nine innings, there was plenty of overtime action.

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

Stephen Vogt answered with a two-wheeled hostage by Ron Marinaccio with one out in the bottom to tie the game.

Neither team managed a hit through five innings – the third time that has happened in a game in the last three seasons.

Adam Oller faced a team-low 24 batters in eight innings for Oakland, allowing one hit and one walk. He had one hit on an error in an 88-pitch outing. Ohler stranded two runners on stolen bases and the other was retired on a groundout double play 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 walked onto the field. He came down from the safety near the right field line and was taken out.


There were several highlight-reel plays on defense in both directions.

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

Pinter Construction a jump over the right field wall to get an extra base hit away from Oswaldo Cabrera at third.

Germán got help from his outfield, with Aaron Judge making a diving catch on the center field wall to rob Cal Stevenson leading off the sixth and Benintendi making a sliding handle in left to get a hit away from Vimael Machin in the seventh.
