New York Yankees

The New York Yankees picked up a clutch hit from little-used Brendan Ryan to defeat the second-place Baltimore Orioles 3-2 in the Bronx.

How ironic Tuesday night turned out to be for Brian Cashman and the New York Yankees.

Just a day after taking so much flak for sending second-base prospect Rob Refsnyder back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, utility infielder Brendan Ryan comes up huge. Ryan, who just came off the DL, delivered the biggest hit of the night in the sixth inning.

Ryan hit a tie-breaking RBI double off of Baltimore Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen to give the Yanks a 3-2 lead they would not relinquish.

Justin Wilson, Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller would make sure of it, pitching 3.1 scoreless innings to lock the win down for Nate Eovaldi.

The win now moves the Yanks to 10-games over .500 (51-41).
