OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The New York Yankees’ 13-game winning streak ended as Frankie Montas pitched seven shutout innings and the Oakland Athletics held on for a 3-2 victory Saturday.

Matt Chapman homered to help stop the Yankees’ best run in nearly 60 years. The A’s had lost six straight and 10 of 12 before handing the Yankees their first loss since Aug. 12.

The Yankees trailed 3-0 in the ninth inning when Anthony Rizzo reached on a bloop single with one out and Aaron Judge followed with his 29th homer, connecting against Sergio Romo. But Romo got Giancarlo Stanton to pop out and Joey Gallo to ground out for his first save since 2020.

The Yankees’ string was their best since a 13-game streak in September 1961 fueled by Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.

Montas (10-9) allowed two hits. He struck out six and walked one.

Nestor Cortes Jr. (2-2) allowed three runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings. He had four strikeouts and walked three.

ROYALS 4, MARINERS 2

SEATTLE (AP) — Salvador Perez homered for the third straight game, lining a two-run shot off the top of the fence for his 37th of the season to lead Kansas City over Seattle.

Whit Merrifield also homered for Kansas City, which won its third straight over Seattle.

Domingo Tapia, Joel Payamps (1-3) and Scott Barlow combined for 4 1/3 innings, allowing four hits and a run. Kyle Seager earned his 10th save.

Tyler Anderson (6-9) took the loss.

RED SOX 5, INDIANS 3, 10 INNINGS

CLEVELAND (AP) — J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and Boston beat Cleveland.

Martinez, who broke out of an 0-for-20 slump with three hits, drove a 2-1 pitch from Nick Wittgren (2-7) into the seats in right field for his 24th home run of the season. Martinez also singled in the first and sixth.

Garrett Whitlock (6-2) pitched around a one-out single in the ninth. Adam Ottavino earned his 10th save and second of the series.

Franmil Reyes hit a solo homer for Cleveland.
