Morning Bits

Good morning everyone!

The Yankees lost their second straight game to the A's last night by a score of 5-2.

Phil Hughes had a bad outing, allowing 3 earned runs on four hits and five walks, lasting only 4 1/3 innings.

Joba Chamberlain struggled in relief, allowing 2 earned runs on 3 hits in 1 1/3 innings.

The heart of the Yankees order was dreadful, with Mark Teixeira, Travis Hafner, Vernon Wells and Kevin Youkilis going a combined 0-13 in the 3-6 spots in the order.

The Yankees managed only four hits.

Brandon Moss homered twice to lead the A's.

The Yankees fell to .500(3-3) on their brutal ten game West Coast trip and also fell three games behind the division leading Red Sox.

Hiroki Kuroda(6-5, 2.84 ERA) will face Jarrod Parker(5-6, 4.68 ERA) today in a game that starts at 3:35 ET.  The game will be broadcast by YES.

Now on to today's news links:
