A.J. Griffin pitched poorly but was bailed out by his teammates Sunday, as he gave up four runs on seven hits and three walks over 6 1/3 frames in a 5-4 win over the Yankees.

The A's relievers allowed four baserunners and no runs over the final 4 2/3 innings, and the offense did enough to let Griffin off the hook. After a terrific start to his career, Griffin has now put up two straight clunkers. He'll have a good shot to bounce back against the Mariners next weekend, though.
