Yanks Win A Weird One In Extra Innings

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) – Among 15 hits and 53 at-bats, the Yankees had but one extra-base hit. And it was a big one.

Robinson Cano smacked a go-ahead two-run double in the top of the 15th inning, keying New York to a 4-1 victory over Baltimore in a wild opener to the teams’ two-game set.

The game was a carnival of oddities, including Baltimore’s Brandon Snyder being hit by a ground ball on the basepath. And that was after the Yankees’ Chris Dickerson was hit in the helmet by a Mike Gonzalez fastball, Baltimore’s Felix Pie came up just feet short of a game-winning homer, and Mariano Rivera blew a save following Bartolo Colon’s near shutout.

But Cano’s hit saved the Yankees, who have won two in a row after a six-game slide, while the Orioles had a two-game winning streak broken.
