Yankees Sweep Orioles with Another Extra-Inning Win
Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the 10th, and the New York Yankees beat Baltimore 6-4 Wednesday night for their second straight extra-inning win and a three-game sweep of the Orioles.
Curtis Granderson homered and drove in three runs for the Yankees, who won consecutive extra-inning road games for the first time since July 16-17, 2001, at Philadelphia, according to STATS LLC.
After getting swept at Tampa Bay and starting 0-3 for the first time since 1998, the Yankees are back to .500 heading into their home opener against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday.
With two outs in the 10th, Mark Teixeira hit an opposite-field pop off Kevin Gregg (0-1) that landed just inside the left-field line and between third baseman Mark Reynolds and left fielder Nolan Reimold.
