Giambi saves best for last
Giambi's blast lifts Yanks
Jason Giambi crushed a no-doubt home run in the top of the 13th inning to give the Yankees a satisfying victory. Spot starter Darrell Rasner pitched well after a shaky first inning, and seven relievers combined for 7 2/3 shutout frames with Brian Bruney tossing two scoreless innings for the win.

Series at a glance:
A's run out of gas
The A's bats appeared to be in fine form when Bobby Crosby and Travis Buck smacked RBI hits in a three-run first inning, but the offense did not push across another run in a loss to the Yankees. The bullpen allowed only one run in 6 1/3 innings to give Oakland numerous chances to break through.
