A's Wrap Up Home Run Derby in Big Apple

Both the Giants and the A's played day games today and neither team could get it done in nine innings.

For the A's it ended in a loss after 14 innings.

Melky Cabrera ended a home run-filled opening homestand at the new Yankee Stadium with a two-run drive in the 14th to give New York a 9-7 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

The Yankees overcame another shaky outing from CC Sabathia on a rainy afternoon that featured five more home runs. But after Oakland tied the score in the seventh, what had been a $1.5 billion hitters' haven turned into a pitchers' park until Cabrera's drive off Dan Giese (0-2).

Hideki Matsui and Cabrera hit consecutive homers in the second off Brett Anderson to start the comeback for New York, which opened 4-2 at its new ballpark after going 4,133-2,430-17 at the original Yankee Stadium.
