OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Carlos Beltran hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the sixth, Brian McCann and Chase Headley drove in runs and the New York Yankees ended a four-game losing streak in Oakland, beating the Athletics 5-3 Saturday night.

McCann drove in a run in his eighth straight to help the Yankees win their fourth in six games. Headley had three hits and Alex Rodriguez hit safely in his ninth straight, and in his last 14 starts.

Josh Reddick had three hits and drove in a run for the A's, who had a two-game win streak snapped. The A's have still won five of their last eight following a four-game losing streak. Billy Butler and Marcus Semien drove in runs.

Jesse Hahn (2-5), who threw his first complete-game and shutout in his last start, gave up four runs - three earned - on seven hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out four.

Chasen Shreve (2-1) struck out all four batters he faced to earn the win. Andrew Miller pitched the ninth for his 15th consecutive save.
