OAKLAND, Calif. -- Road-weary David Phelps finally pitched well away from home. The New York Yankees scored in bunches without the benefit of a home run. And they beat the ALs best team in a place they had not won in more than two years. Indeed, things are turning around fast out west. Phelps tossed two-hit ball into the seventh inning and two relievers were perfect the rest of the way, leading the Yankees past the AL-best Oakland Athletics 7-0 on Friday night for their fourth straight victory. "Its definitely one of the best starts of my career," said Phelps, who struck out four and walked three in 6 2-3 innings. Phelps (2-4) didnt allow a hit until Derek Norris soft single over the head of third baseman Kelly Johnson with one out in the fifth. Jed Lowries double in the seventh was Oaklands only other hit. Dellin Betances recorded four straight outs, and Jose Ramirez pitched a perfect ninth for New York. Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark Teixeira and Brett Gardner each drove in a run as the Yankees built a 3-0 lead against Sonny Gray (6-3) in the first two innings. New York scored four more in the eighth off Jeff Francis. Six different Yankees drove in a run, and New York had 12 hits in all. "Thats the recipe for scoring a lot of runs," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Coming off a three-game sweep at Seattle, the Yankees kept rolling on the road against the AL West. New York is 5-2 on its nine-game trip and is assured of heading home with a winning mark. The Yankees pounded an As team that began Friday leading the majors in run differential by more than double any other team. Oakland had outscored opponents by 130 runs; the next closest club was San Francisco at 59. Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 17 games with an RBI single during a two-run first inning. Brett Gardner added an RBI single in the third before Gray found his groove. Oaklands young ace retired 13 straight batters, but his teammates never could fluster Phelps -- or New Yorks bullpen. "They were aggressive and once we were able to start making pitches down in the zone I got them out. It was just a little too late," said Gray, who gave up three runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Ichiro Suzuki drove in two runs, and Brian McCann and Johnson each hit RBI singles to put the Yankees up 7-0 in the eighth. New York had lost all five of Phelps road starts this season, including his last outing at Kansas City, where he allowed seven runs in 5 2-3 innings. But Phelps pitched a gem in Oakland, a place the Yankees had lost seven in a row. He also snapped a career-high, four-game skid in front of an announced crowd of 36,067 -- the fifth sellout in Oakland this season -- that had the usual strong sprinkling of Yankees fans to make Phelps feel at home. "I was attacking guys," Phelps said. "The last couple starts I was trying to be too fine with my pitches and digging myself in a hole. But tonight, they did a great job scoring early for me and kind of let me settle in a little early."

But when the outfielder is on a red-hot streak, it gets even more difficult. Trout and the Angels will return to Progressive Field in Cleveland on Wednesday night for the third encounter of a four-game series with the Indians. You can watch the game on TSN and TSN GO at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Angels had managed just two runs per game in a 1-4 stretch prior to Tuesday, but ended the drought with 15 hits in a 9-3 victory. Trout homered twice and drove in four runs, and is now batting .410 with eight homers and 26 runs batted in over his last 22 games. "Im being patient and squaring up some balls," Trout said. "Im not anxious. Im just comfortable." Facing the comfortable Trout is Clevelands less comfortable Justin Masterson, who was dinged for five runs in two innings of a 10-3 loss at Boston on Friday. It was the second-shortest start of his big-league career and his 5.05 earned run average for the season is a career worst as well. Prior to the loss to the Red Sox, hed compiled a 1.72 ERA in three starts. Last time out against the Angels, he allowed five runs in 7 1/3 innings of a 6-3 loss in April. Trout, incidentally, has four hits in eight career att-bats against him.dddddddddddd Cleveland had won 10 straight at home before Tuesday. "Weve really played very well for about the last month," the Tribes Carlos Santana said. "You want to win every time, but this was just one game." The Indians may again be without home run and RBI leader Michael Brantley, who missed Tuesday as a precaution after he was injured in Mondays game. Brantley passed a concussion test, but was shaky during pregame activities. The Angels start lefty C.J. Wilson, whos 1-3 in his last four starts while earning just one run of support in the three losses. He dropped a 4-3 decision to Atlanta in his last start on Friday. He was a 7-1 winner against Cleveland on April 30 and is 4-2 against the Indians in eight starts. Brantley is 1-for-14 against him in his career. On Tuesday, Kole Calhoun went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored, while Howie Kendrick also homered and drove in two for the Angels. Matt Shoemaker (4-1) lasted eight innings and gave up two runs on five hits with a walk and 10 strikeouts. Lonnie Chisenhall homered, while Santana and David Murphy each drove in a run for the Indians. Josh Tomlin (4-4) was beat up for six runs -- five earned -- on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings. ' ' '
