The Yankees had every reason to expect a win with a two-run lead and Mariano Rivera on the mound in the ninth inning. But Rivera surrendered a three-run homer with two outs, spoiling a solid effort from Andy Pettitte, who pitched seven strong innings.
With the A's down by two with two outs in the ninth, Marco Scutaro delivered his ninth game-winning hit as a member of the A's -- a three-run homer off future Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera -- to lift the A's to a series win. Rich Harden struck out seven but left with right shoulder tightness.
