The New York Yankees won again in extra innings, for the second game in a row, on Wednesday night. Nick Swisher sent a Kevin Gregg cutter out of Camden Yards for a two-run shot that gave the Yankees a 6-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Curtis Granderson hit a two-run homer in the top of the first inning and added a third RBI on a seventh inning single. Derek Jeter scored Raul Ibanez on a ground out in the fifth inning.
CC Sabathia struck out eight batters in six innings of work. He also allowed four runs on eight hits, ending up with a no-decision for the game. Rafael Soriano picked up the win for his work in the ninth inning, and Mario Rivera earned his second save of the season with a shutdown tenth.
Jake Arrieta fanned five before leaving in seventh. The Baltimore starter surrendered four runs on five hits and one walk. Mark Reynolds and Robert Andino accounted for the Orioles scoring, each driving in a pair of runs.
New York sweeps Baltimore with the win. It also gets the Yankees to .500 after a season-opening sweep at the hands of the Rays. They open a three-game home series, their first home games of the season, against the Angels on Friday.
