OAKLAND, CA - It was another one-run game and another dramatic win for the Oakland Athletics.

Seth Smith smacked the game tying solo homer in the ninth and Coco Crisp provided the game-winning RBI single in the 12th as the A's completed their first four-game sweep of the Yankees at the Coliseum with 5-4 triumph on Sunday.

The A's have won each of their last five contests by one run. They registered their MLB-leading 11th walk-off win and the sixth in their last 11 home games while moving to an MLB best 14-2 in July.

Jerry Blevins (3-0) tossed two scoreless innings in relief to pick up the win.

Curtis Granderson tallied two hits, including a solo homer, and a pair of runs scored, while Alex Rodriguez smacked a two-run double for the Yankees, who were last swept in a four-game set by the Toronto Blue Jays on May 22-25, 2003.
