With two or three losses in a interleague series they had a letdown against the Giants following the A’s sweep of the Yankees, then came back to win three of four matches against the Royals recently.
After last week, the Yankees should know by now not to take the Athletics. They are playing for something, since they look to fend off the Rays from the AL to get a place in the Wild Card Game.
