BALTIMORE A part time player got a big time double to help the New York Yankees jerseys avert a three game sweep.
cheap John Ryan Murphy jersey had the Yankees jerseys’ only hit in a three run fifth inning, and New York received a strong performance from its bullpen in a 5 3 win over the Baltimore Orioles jerseys on Sunday.
New York trailed 3 2 before rallying in the fifth. After Orioles jerseys rookie cheap Mike Wright jersey (2 2) issued three straight walks all on 3 2 pitches to load the bases, cheap Brian Matusz jersey walked Garrett Jones with the count full to force in a run. Two outs later, Murphy bounced a two run double off the glove of third baseman cheap Manny Machado jersey.
Murphy, New York’s backup catcher, got three hits to raise his batting average 42 points to .250. He entered the game with four extra base hits and three RBIs.
“He did an outstanding job. He’s a big reason we won today,” manager Joe Girardi said.
Matusz was pitching for the first time since May 31 after serving an eight game suspension for using a foreign substance while on the mound.
Batting eighth in a lineup that contains Alex Rodriguez, Teixeira and cheap Brett Gardner jersey, Murphy got the hit that mattered most. That it went in the direction of the 2013 Gold Glove winner made it just a little bit more dicey.
“I guess any time you hit the ball that way you expect it to be caught,” Murphy said. “It was a tough play for him diving down the line. I hit it hard.”
Orioles jerseys manager Buck Showalter said, “I was surprised he got leather on it.”
New York starter cheap Adam Warren jersey was pulled with two outs in the fifth and replaced by cheap Chasen Shreve jersey (3 1), who went 1 1 3 innings.
cheap Justin Wilson jersey got six consecutive outs before turning it over to cheap Dellin Betances jersey. Filling in for injured closer cheap Andrew Miller jersey, Betances worked around a walk in the ninth for his third save.
“You don’t want to get swept. It’s a division opponent,” Girardi said. “We did not play well the first two days. We played much better today and didn’t give them extra outs, and we won the game.”
Nolan Reimold had two RBIs for the Orioles jerseys, who managed only six hits after scoring 20 runs on 31 hits in their previous two games. Baltimore was seeking a seventh straight win for the first time since 2005.
“We made some headway over the last few games,” Showalter said. “We’ve just got to keep grinding through it.”
Four straight walks helped put a halt to the win streak, but the Orioles jerseys had little to lament after taking three from Boston and a pair from the Yankees jerseys to start an eight game homestand.
“Anytime you are able to win the series against a division rival, it’s good,” first baseman cheap Chris Davis jersey said. “I thought we played a pretty clean game for the most part. Didn’t make a lot of mistakes, didn’t make a lot of errors. We just got beat today.”
Rodriguez went 0 for 4 with a walk for New York to remain five hits short of 3,000 for his career.
Teixeira drove in a mlb jerseys from china first inning run with an opposite field double that hit the chalk in deep left. Reimold answered with a two run single in the bottom half.
Three singles and a sacrifice fly by cheap Brett Gardner jersey tied it in the second.
Warren retired eight straight before Reimold walked to open the fourth and scored on a double by cheap Caleb Joseph jersey. Yankees jerseys: Shreve has eight straight scoreless appearances while holding the opposition to an .097 batting average.
Yankees jerseys: Rodriguez heads home to Miami, where New York will play a two game series that begins Monday night. cheap Masahiro Tanaka jersey (4 1) starts for the Yankees jerseys.
Orioles jerseys: Wei Yin Chen (2 4, 3.21 ERA) starts against the Philadelphia Phillies jerseys in an interleague clash at Camden Yards.
