The New York Yankees look to extend their winning streak to five games Saturday as they continue their three-game series against the host Oakland Athletics. New York began its shortened nine-game road trip by dropping two of three at Kansas City but registered a three-game sweep at Seattle before posting a 7-0 triumph in the opener at Oakland on Friday. David Phelps combined with two relievers on a two-hitter while Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Brian Roberts each recorded two hits and an RBI.Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with an RBI to extend his hitting streak to 17 games as the Yankees snapped their seven-game losing streak in Oakland. The Athletics were unable to get a runner past second base as they lost for the third time in four contests. Since posting an 11-1 victory at Baltimore on Sunday, Oakland has scored a total of nine runs in four games - two in its three losses.TV: 10:05 p.m. ET, MLBN, YES (New York), CSN California (Oakland)PITCHING MATCHUP: Yankees RH Hiroki Kuroda (4-4, 4.12 ERA) vs. Athletics LH Scott Kazmir (7-2, 2.20)Kuroda had his six-start unbeaten streak snapped Sunday despite allowing only two runs and five hits over seven innings of a loss at Kansas City.
