  • Oakland Athletics' Derek Norris (36) is congratulated by Nate Freiman and Adam Rosales (17) after Norris hit a three-run home run off New York Yankees' CC Sabathia in the fourth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, June 11, 2013, in Oakland, Calif.

Derek Norris homered and drove in four runs and Bartolo Colon pitched six scoreless innings to lead the Oakland Athletics to a 6-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Coco Crisp led off the game for Oakland with a homer off CC Sabathia (6-5) before Norris and Colon (8-2) took over to lead the A's to their eighth win in 11 games.

Sabathia allowed six runs and eight hits in six innings in his homecoming start in front of many fans that came from his hometown of nearby Vallejo to watch him pitch.

The A's did get some bad news when star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had to leave the game after the second inning with tightness in his left hamstring. He is day to day. Cespedes appeared to hurt himself running out a groundout in the first inning.
