Athletics scratch Graveman from start at Yankee Stadium

28 May 2017

Cotton (3-5) was promoted from Triple-A Nashville before the game.

Alonso has been out since he was hit by a pitch from Miami's Jarlin Garcia on Tuesday.

But both Graveman and fellow right-hander Jesse Hahn, are likely headed to the 10-day disabled list with ailing shoulders, according to A's manager Bob Melvin. Melvin said a final decision on Graveman, who is back in the Bay Area working his way through some right shoulder tightness, will likely come down Sunday. "We're treating this like we would a rolled ankle", Alonso said.

"All I'll say is that I got the bat taken out of my hands three times", Lowrie said. "To me, it was a big mentality switch, believing in myself and trusting everything". The only other base runner he allowed in the first six innings were walks to Brett Gardner in the third and Sanchez in the sixth. The last Oakland no-hitter was Dallas Braden's flawless game against the Tampa Bay Rays on May 9, 2010, although Cotton probably would have combined on the no-hitter because of his rising pitch count. NY loaded the bases with one out in the ninth against Santiago Casilla before Didi Gregorius hit a sacrifice fly and pinch-hitter Gary Sanchez popped out. With Jharel Cotton set to face CC Sabathia in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 9.5 runs. Clippard threw a pickoff past first baseman Chris Carter for an error that allowed Rosales to reach third, and Rajai Davis hit a two-hopper to third baseman Chase Headley, who threw to the plate in time for Romine to tag Rosales, who slid headfirst again.

With two out, base runner Rajai Davis stole second and Matt Joyce walked.

It's something of an issue for the A's, because Lowrie had been their hottest hitter with a seven-game hitting streak that included 16 hits, five of them doubles.

"Somebody here has to hit.300", Khris Davis said.

"I don't know if I was expecting it", Lowrie said.

Sabathia (4-2) pitches Saturday for the Yankees after winning consecutive starts for the first time since June 10 and 16 a year ago. He was 3-4 with a 5.68 ERA and a.282 opponents' batting average before being sent down to Triple-A Nashville on May 11.Melvin said the hope is that Hahn would not be on the DL longer than the 10-day minimum. He was 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in a pair of minor league starts, striking out 13 and walking one in 12 innings.

And so some nervous energy pulsated throughout the Stadium, and maybe even the home dugout, Saturday afternoon when Joe Girardi pulled CC Sabathia with one out in the seventh, a man on second and the Yankees leading by a run.

"Any time you come to the big leagues like he did past year, you have a lot of success, and then teams start to make adjustments to you", Melvin said. He won his two starts at Nashville, focusing on mixing up his pitches and throwing inside. "A lot of guys don't get to pitch at Yankee Stadium", Cotton said.
