Freiman lifts A's in 18 innings to cap sweep of Yankees
Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Nate Freiman's single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 18th lifted the Oakland Athletics over the New York Yankees, 3-2.
Preston Claiborne (0-1), who pitched a scoreless 17th, stayed on to start the 18th inning for the Yankees. John Jaso hit a one-out single to right before Mariano Rivera came in from the bullpen. Seth Smith greeted him with a bloop single to left, Jed Lowrie was intentionally walked to fill the bags and Freiman's game-winning base hit to left extended Oakland's home winning streak to 11 games.
The A's swept this three-game series and have now won seven straight at home against New York.
