Gardner’s 2-run single in 9th lifts Yankees over Orioles 4-3

Brett Gardner blooped a two-run single in the ninth inning that was set up by a double steal, and the New York Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 Wednesday night for their third consecutive win.

The Yankees kept pace with Toronto and Boston atop the AL wild-card standings as all three teams won.Austin Hays homered twice for the Orioles, including a two-out, two-run drive in the eighth off Chad Green for a 3-2 lead.

The homer came soon after second baseman Gleyber Torres knocked down a hard liner and instead of throwing to second to get the lead runner, tossed to first to put out Cedric Mullins.

Orioles reliever Tyler Wells (2-3) walked Luke Voit to start the ninth and Torres followed with a single. Pinch-runner Tyler Wade and Torres pulled off a double steal with one out as it began to rain.

Gardner followed with a single to center that scored both runs, much to the delight of their fans that flocked to Camden Yards.

Wandy Peralta (5-3) earned the win and Aroldis Chapman got his 27th save.

Gio Urshela launched a two-run homrer into the left-center bleachers in the third. Urshela took over as the full-time shortstop this week for the error-prone Torres and had a diving catch off a hard liner by Austin Wynns for the final out in the fifth.

Mullins took a two-run homer away from Gary Sanchez in the second with a leaping grab over the center-field fence. Orioles starter John Means pointed to Mullins in celebration and Sanchez walked back to the dugout in disbelief.

Means had another effective outing and permitted two runs and four hits with four strikeouts and two walks in 5 2/3 innings.

It was the fifth time this season the Orioles failed to score a run when Means was on the mound. Hays homered in the sixth and added his 20th of the season in the eighth.

The Orioles are winners of four straight and seven of eight to reach the top spot in the American League East.

Baltimore Orioles have surged to a season-best 12-games over .500 at 35-23, after rattling off seven wins over the last eight games since the start of June, and look to be picking up steam as they approach a seven-game road trip with stops in Toronto and Boston.

They’ve also earned a 1.5-game lead on the Red Sox for first place in the division after their stellar start to this month, crossing the border on a four-game winning streak.

The Toronto Blue Jays look to regain the momentum they were riding a week ago. The Blue Jays ended their series with a convincing 7-2 win on Wednesday afternoon where both the arms and bats were at their best. Jays starter RA Dickey gave up nine hits including a two run homer in the first before leaving after 5.1 innings. Toronto totaled nine hits and walked three times with Josh Donaldson going 3-4 with a homer, three RBI’s and three runs with Kevin Pillar smacking a two run bomb while Justin Smoak knocked in two and scored. Toronto opens the series on the bump with Marcus Stroman who faces Baltimore for the second time in 2016. Stroman has struggled the past two times out with 13 runs given up on 20 hits and six BB in eleven frames.
 

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Orioles RH Tyler Wilson (2-5, 4.39 ERA) vs. Blue Jays RH Marcus Stroman (5-2, 4.82)

Wilson is struggling through a four-start losing streak and had his worst outing of the bunch last time out against the New York Yankees. The 26-year-old allowed five runs and seven hits in four innings to mark just the second time in eight starts that he yielded more than three runs. Wilson has made three appearances against Toronto, surrendering a total of two runs in 8 2/3 innings.

Stroman was ripped for at least six runs in three of his last four outings and struggled to keep the ball in the strike zone at Boston on Saturday. The Duke product allowed six runs on nine hits and a career-high five walks in the loss. Stroman was sharper at Baltimore on April 19, surrendering three runs on six hits – two home runs – to earn a win and improve his career record against the division rivals to 2-1 with a 3.24 ERA.
