Yankees top A's in Area Code Games


John Kodros pitched four solid innings for the Yankees.

LONG BEACH, Calif.—The Yankees, behind lefthander John Kodris, beat the Athletics 3-1 in the final game of Sunday’s Area Code Games session.

Kodros (Coppell (Texas) High) pitched four innings for the Yankees, giving up one run. The four innings was the longest outing of any pitcher so far at the Area Code Games. Kodros said he approached the game as if he were starting a game in high school.

BA’s Hudson Belinsky described Kodros’ pitching motion as deceptive with a lot of movement on his fastball, along with a frisbee slider.
