NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees turned its record-tying third triple play of the season to strand the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, bailing out closer Aroldis Chapman from a shaky outing and closing down a 2-1 win  over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. Gary Sanchez rspoiled Sean Manaea’s gem with a go-ahead two-run double in the sixth inning which gave New York the lead, while Jonathan Loaisiga (7-2) and Lucas Luetge gave Chapman a 2-1 lead in the ninth.

A day after hitting 103.4 miles per hour in his 15th save – his fastest pitch in a strikeout since the 2017 wild-card game – Chapman walked Jed Lowrie and Chad Pinder on nine pitches, topping out at 98 mph. He was visited by an athletic trainer because the nail in his left middle finger broke but stayed in the game to face Sean Murphy, who drilled the second pitch of the at-bat right at third baseman Gio Urshela.

Urshela stepped third and shot fast at DJ LeMahieu, second baseman relieved first to pass Murphy by one step. New York also had a triple play Thursday at Buffalo against the Blue Jays, in addition to the one it had on May 21 against the Chicago White Sox. The historic franchise had never had more than one triple play in a season and tied for the highest record in the majors in a season, which had been achieved in 2016 by the White Sox. For the Athletics, the Venezuelan Elvis Andrus 3-0. For the Yankees, the Dominicans Gary Sánchez 3-2 with two produced and Miguel Andújar 3-0. The Colombian Gio Urshela 3-0. The Venezuelan Gleyber Torres from 3-0.
