OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Mark Teixeira hit a solo homer, Curtis Granderson had an RBI triple and the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 3-1 on Monday night for their third straight victory.
Francisco Cervelli added an RBI single as New York gave Javier Vazquez (7-7) all the offense he needed to end a three-start winless stretch. The right-hander outdueled Ben Sheets, Oakland's $10 million man who has just one win over his last 11 outings.
The Yankees increased their lead in the AL East to two games over Tampa Bay, which beat Boston to drop the Red Sox to 2 games back.
Vazquez made his 400th career start, the seventh pitcher to reach the milestone while with the Yankees, and helped New York win for the eighth time in its last 11 road games.
