OAKLAND, Calif., June 12 (UPI) -- Derek Norris and Coco Crisp homered for Oakland Tuesday in the Athletics' 6-4 win over the visiting New York Yankees.

Colon held the Yankees to three hits and four walks while striking out three in six innings. Grant Balfour picked up the save.

CC Sabathia (6-5) was handed the loss after allowing six runs on eight hits over six innings. Mark Teixeira drove in three runs and Vernon Wells accounted for the other run for the Yanks, who had won their previous two games.
