Oakland's Fiers puts hot streak on line vs. Yanks

Right-hander Mike Fiers will attempt to extend his streak of unbeaten starts to 19 and the host Oakland Athletics will go for a second consecutive win over the New York Yankees when the clubs continue their three-game series Wednesday night.

Veteran Homer Bailey quieted the Yankees' bats in the series opener Tuesday, leading Oakland to a 6-2 win.

While Bailey, acquired at the trade deadline, is hoping to pitch the A's into the postseason and himself into their rotation should the club get there, there's no doubt that Fiers (11-3, 3.46 ERA) would be No. 1 on the team's postseason depth chart.
