LeMahieu single in 7th starts late rally for Yankees

-

DJ LeMahieu drove in four runs, including a tiebreakin­g single with nobody out in the seventh inning, and Giancarlo Stanton hit a bases-clearing double later in the inning as the New York Yankees rallied for a 10-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees won for the seventh time in nine games and tied a season best by going nine games over .500 by rallying from an early three-run deficit.

Tied at 3, New York had runners at first and second for LeMahieu. Jonathan Davis easily scored when LeMahieu ripped a full count slider from Paul Fry up the middle. The ball went under Fry’s legs and caromed off Ramon Urias’ glove, as the second baseman tried to make a diving stop, and went into center field.

Anthony Rizzo homered off Matt Harvey and became the first Yankee to drive in a run in his first six games with the team. He also became the first player with an RBI in his first six games with any team since Bobby Murcer for the 1977 Chicago Cubs.
