The New York Yankees had their five-game win streak snapped on Saturday night at the Coliseum with a 3-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics in 11 innings.

The game was scoreless until the top of the 10th inning when the Yankees plated a pair of runs on a wild pitch to take a 2-0 lead. However, the Athletics tied the game in the bottom half of the inning on Stephen Vogt’s pinch-hit two-run home run.

In the top of the 11th, New York could not scratch across a run, and in the bottom of the frame, Oakland walked it off on a throwing error by DJ LeMahieu.

Oswaldo Cabrera had the Yankees only hit of the game with a leadoff double in the top of the sixth.

Domingo Germán started on the mound for New York and tossed 7 2/3 shutout innings while allowing three hits and striking out five. Ron Marinaccio allowed the game-tying homer, and Lou Trivino surrendered an unearned run.

The Yankees will try to take three of four from the Athletics on Sunday at 4:07 p.m. Clarke Schmidt will make his second start of the season.
