    OAKLAND -- Starlin Castro broke out of a slump with three hits, Carlos Beltran singled twice to keep up his recent tear and the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 5-1 on Saturday to win their season-high fourth straight.

    Masahiro Tanaka pitched seven innings to win Joe Girardi's 1,500th game as a manager. Tanaka (2-0) allowed one run on five hits and had four strikeouts for his first victory since April 12.

    Castro was in a 3-for-22 funk before he reached on an infield single as part of New York's four-run fourth. The veteran second baseman also singled in the fifth, and then doubled in Ronald Torreyes for an insurance run in the seventh.

    Beltran had an RBI single in the fourth to stay hot. He is batting .391 (9 for 23) with eight RBIs over the past six games.

    All the runs came off Oakland rookie starter Sean Manaea (1-2).
