OAKLAND, Calif. -- Catcher Derek Norris and center fielder Coco Crisp hit three-run homers, right-hander Jesse Chavez pitched six strong innings, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees 10-5 on Sunday at O.co Coliseum in the finale of their three-game series.
The A's took two of three games to win the series. The A's won the season series 4-2 and improved to 14-5 in their past 19 games against the Yankees.
Norris crushed a three-run shot off Yankees left-hander Vidal Nuno in the first inning, and Crisp ripped a three-run shot off Nuno in the second, giving the A's a 6-0 lead.
The A's had homered only once in their previous five games, a power outage that followed a streak of 16 games in which they homered at least once. The A's, who rank second the American League with 79 homers, launched 27 home runs during that stretch.
Norris went 3-for-5 with a home run, double and single, coming up a triple shy of a cycle but raising his batting average to .305. Crisp went 2-for-4, scored three runs and drove in three. Third baseman Josh Donaldson snapped a career-high 0-for-33 hitless streak in the fourth inning, grounding an RBI single to right after going hitless in his first two at-bats.
Chavez (6-4) had lost three of his past four starts before getting back on track Sunday. He allowed just one run on five hits, striking out four and walking none.
Nuno (1-3) allowed eight runs and eight hits -- both season highs -- over just three innings in his shortest start of the season. Going into the game, he was 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in six appearances on the road, including four starts, and hadn't allowed a home run away from Yankee Stadium. The Yankees were 6-0 in Nuno's six career road starts before that streak came to a decisive end Sunday.
Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the seventh, and left fielder Brett Gardner hit a two-run shot in the ninth. Shortstop Derek Jeter went 1-for-3 with a double, scored a run and drove in one in his final career regular-season game against Oakland.
The A's scored four times in the fourth inning, increasing their lead to 10-0.
The Yankees scored their only run off Chavez in the sixth when Jeter doubled and scored on first baseman Mark Teixeira's double. Beltran cut the lead to 10-2 with his leadoff blast in the seventh. Jeter made it 10-3 with a sacrifice fly in the seventh, driving in right fielder Ichiro Suzuki. Gardner's two-run blast in the ninth made it 10-5.
NOTES: Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira returned to the starting lineup Sunday afternoon against Oakland, one day after being a late scratch because of a back spasm. ... Oakland RF Josh Reddick (hyperextended right knee) will likely begin a rehabilitation assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento, A's manager Bob Melvin said before the game. ... A's 3B Josh Donaldson, who is on a career-long 0-for-31 hitless streak, was dropped from third to sixth in the order. "It's just a little bit of a change of scenery, which you do from time to time just to mix things up," Melvin said. ... Yankees SS Derek Jeter was honored in a pregame ceremony before playing his final career regular-season game against the A's. Oakland hitting coach Chili Davis and Melvin presented him with a check for $10,002 to his foundation from the team, as well as an assortment of parting gifts, including a three-liter bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley.
