Orioles 2, Yankees 1, 13 innings
NEW YORK — J.J. Hardy hit an RBI double in the 13th inning and the Baltimore Orioles bounced back from a demoralizing loss to outlast the New York Yankees 2-1 late tonight, forcing a deciding Game 5 in the AL Division Series.
After splitting 22 games this year, it all comes down this: a winner-take-all for a spot in the AL Championship Series.
Game 1 winner CC Sabathia is set to pitch the deciding game for the Yankees. Orioles manager Buck Showalter had not announced his starter.
Eric Chavez, pinch-hitting for Alex Rodriguez, lined out to end the game shortly after midnight.
The Orioles were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position until Hardy doubled off David Phelps with one out to score Manny Machado.
