The New York Yankees can sweep the Baltimore Orioles with a big win on Thursday.
A blown lead and a ninth-inning comeback later, the New York Yankees are on the verge of a much-needed sweep of the Baltimore Orioles.
All seemed lost when Chad Green gave up a go-ahead home run to Austin Hays in the eighth inning. However, in the ninth, Brett Gardner’s 2-RBI single was plenty enough and Aroldis Chapman earned the quick save.
The Wild Card race is further unsettled. As of now, the Yankees are in a three-way tie for it with the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox.
