A's beat Yankees 5-1 after light outage delay

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Eric Sogard drove in two runs and threw out a runner at the plate, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees 5-1 on Saturday night after a partial power outage delayed the game.

The game was stopped for 38 minutes in the middle of the fourth inning after a panel of lights went out above left field. The A's said the circuit breaker turned off and had to be manually reset.

New York's four-game winning streak ended because of its own errors. Two passed balls by backup catcher John Ryan Murphy, who was inserted in the lineup after Mark Teixeira was scratched with tightness in his rib cage, helped Oakland score twice in the fifth.

Scott Kazmir (8-2) allowed one unearned run and three hits in six innings for his third straight win.
