Jesse Chavez entered this game with the lowest run support in the majors (1.05). We needed to come out as the Swingin' A's and we did that...in moderate fashion with eight hits. Burns went 3-4, and Stephen Vogt was the big bat who put the A's ahead in the 6th with a two-run homer. Jesse pitched 8 innings, no walks, six strikeouts, a career-high 110 pitches and dropped his ERA to 2.11. He nabbed the win after Tyler Clippard closed out the game for a final score of 3-0 as the Athletics take the four-game series from the Yankees with three wins.
