OAKLAND -- With a combined 557 pounds on the mound, two of the American League's heavyweights traded blows at the Coliseum. Bartolo Colon the 2005 Cy Young-award winner, versus C.C. Sabathia the 2007 winner. Sabathia, a southpaw who hails from Vallejo, entered with the height, youth, and run support advantage. The Yankees knocked out Colon after six innings in a 9-2 win. The Yankees now have a .718 win percentage (23-9) against the A's since 2004, which is the best mark against the A's in Major League Baseball. Starting Pitching ReportColon lacked the usual late movement on his fastball. He allowed six runs, all earned, on nine hits -- two of which were homers. He struck out three and walked none. Colon's big inning came as a result of a defensive miscue that is detailed below. Sabathia got the win. He threw seven innings, allowing two runs. He struck out four and walked two A's hitters.At The PlateIt was a tough day at the office for Coco Crisp who grounded out with the bases loaded in the second inning, and grounded out in the fourth with a runner on third. Both at-bats came with two outs. It might be time for Bob Melvin to consider moving the veteran center fielder down in the lineup.Josh Reddick launched his 13th homer of the year in the third inning. Reddick has hit nine home runs in the month of May, the best month by an Athletic since Frank Thomas hit 10 in September of 2006. The A's have now hit 40 home runs in 46 games. Last season their 40th homer came in their 75th game. The A's scored first in the opening frame when Jonny Gomes drove in Jemile Weeks. Weeks was in scoring position after a single and a sacrifice by Crisp. Collin Cowgill went 3-for-4. Bullpen ReportGraham Godfrey, who threw a bullpen session before the game, entered in the eighth inning. After loading the bases, he drilled Derek Jeter with an 0-2 pitch making it a 7-2 game. In the ninth inning he allowed a two-run Mark Teixeira homer to center field, making it 9-2 Yankees. Teixeira, who also hit a home run in the fourth inning, has 35 multi-homer games in his career. Godfrey's appearance leaves Monday's spot in the starting rotation up for speculation. Jordan Norberto threw a scoreless seventh inning, but he walked two batters. In the FieldWhen the A's give away outs, the Yankees make them pay. In the fifth inning, Derek Jeter laid down a bunt that was fielded by Colon. First baseman Adam Rosales charged in on the bunt as well, but Weeks didn't cover first base. Jeter ended up with an infield single. Later in the inning, Alex Rodriguez hit a sacrifice fly that would have been the third out of the inning. Next, Robinson Cano doubled and Teixeira hit a two-run single. The bunt single by Jeter was career hit 3,154, which tied George Brett for 14th place on the all-time MLB hit list. AttendanceThe announced attendance of 27,112 is down from the 33,559 that packed the house on Friday night. Up NextTommy Milone (6-3, 3.75 ERA) takes on Hiroki Kuroda (3-6, 4.56 ERA) Sunday at 1:05 p.m. Milone is the first starting pitcher in Oakland history to win his first four starts at the Oakland Coliseum.
