Olson, Canha hit back-to-back HRs to lead A's past Yanks 6-2

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Matt Olson and Mark Canha hit back-to-back homers in the first inning to lead the Oakland Athletics over the New York Yankees 6-2 Tuesday night for their fifth win in six games.

Olson connected on a two-run shot down the right field line with two outs in the first off Domingo German (16-3) for his 26th homer, and Canha followed with his 19th on a drive to right-center.

That outburst proved to be more than enough for Homer Bailey (11-8), who shut the Yankees down after allowing a solo homer to Gary Sanchez in the first inning. Bailey allowed one run and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings to improve to 3-0 at home since joining Oakland last month in a trade from Kansas City. He walked none and struck out eight.
