Martin's walk-off keeps Yankees in first place

NEW YORK (AP) — Russell Martin led off the bottom of the 10th inning with a homer off Sean Doolittle, and the AL East-leading New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 2-1 Friday night for their sixth straight win.
Brandon Moss hit a towering home run to right field with one out in the ninth inning off Rafael Soriano to spoil a dominant three-hit outing for CC Sabathia to tie it 1-all, stunning the boisterous crowd of 40,759 into silence. It was Soriano's fourth blown save in 46 chances.
With the win, the Yankees have a one-game lead on Baltimore in the AL East.
The A's, losers of four of five, were tied with Baltimore for the wild-card lead.
