NEW YORK— Brett Lawrie hit a leadoff homer in the 10th inning against All-Star reliever Dellin Betances, sending the Oakland Athletics to a 4-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Billy Butler launched a tying shot off Chasen Shreve in the sixth, and Tyler Clippard whiffed slugger Mark Teixeira with two on for the final out as the A’s improved to 1-6 in extra innings this year. They had been the only major league team without a win after the ninth.

Sonny Gray threw seven gritty innings for Oakland in his return from an illness that sent him to the hospital and forced him to skip a start.

Lawrie pulled an 0-2 breaking ball just inside the left-field foul pole for his eighth home run. Betances (5-2) snapped his head down and shouted into his glove.

Drew Pomeranz (3-3) pitched two perfect innings, and Clippard got three outs against his former team for his 16th save in 18 attempts.
