Yankees 4, Athletics 3
Joba Chamberlain fanned eight and allowed one run in six innings. (Ed Betz/AP)
Wilson Betemit's RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning forced extras -- bailing out Mariano Rivera, who allowed a run in the top of the ninth -- and Jose Molina secured a win for the Yankees when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the 12th. Joba Chamberlain fanned eight.
