Hiroki Kuroda (4-6) tossed eight innings of four-hit ball as the Yankees won 2-0 on Sunday in Oakland to complete a three game sweep of the Athletics.

After New York lost six of seven to drop to .500, the pinstripes have won five straight games improving to 26-21. Over that streak, all-five current starters have picked up a win (Phil Hughes, Andy Pettitte, Ivan Nova, C.C. Sabathia and Kuroda)

Rafeal Soriano collected save number five while striking out two in the ninth.

Oakland’s Tommy Malone fell to 6-4, allowing both Yankee runs over 6 2/3 innings.

Andruw Jones hit his fifth homer in the second inning, and Mark Teixeira had an RBI double in the seventh – one of his two hits on the day.

Derek Jeter lead off the game with a hit, the 3,155th of his career, moving past George Brett for 14th on the all-time list.

The bombers move to Los Angeles to open a series with Angles on Monday night at 9:05.
